Artists Statement:
Our work has always found it’s way back to each other, and we’re sure it’s better for it. Theave Design has grown out of our fine art practices and the influence those practices have on our approach to interiors. Theave’s furniture was born from the same instinct to bring our different abilities in craft together. Kate has spent years working with wood, while Karly, resolutely anti-splinter, has focused on textiles.

Karly has made quilts in the tradition of her mother and grandmother. Each quilt was made to be thrown over a body- the trimmings are what seeps through.

Kate’s paintings are landscapes. She has abstracted and flattened spaces, moving from memory into a rhythm of drawing. They are studies on the interplay of color and her own ritual of line.

We hope this snapshot of our current work speaks to our sense of color, our study of craft, and our own joy in design.

~Kate and Karly
