Arts, Eats & Beats: 4Cast Design and Foundry 43

Our neighborhood's annual Arts, Eats & Beats is just around the corner - this Thursday evening! We're excited to be celebrating with new original works by two incredibly talented artists with Mississippi roots, Marcie Fyke Baria and Ryan Wagner.

Marcie creates organically in the truest sense with 4Cast Design. Taking concrete and plant material, she creates organic hand-cast concrete items for the home and garden, including planters, sand-cast plant impressions, candle holders and more. After impressions have dried, paint is applied to the concrete, making the casts look as if the plants were still there.

Specializing in custom mixed-media products, Ryan Wagner is the owner and artist of Foundry 43 Creative Studio

He attended Ole Miss and achieved a BFA in both graphic design and printmaking in 2005, but began his painting career shortly after graduation. Calling Mississippi home for over 10 years, Southern and Mississippi themes are naturally influential in much of his work. He currently resides in Nashville.

"Revelations" by Ryan Wagner

Please stop in Thursday, May 21 from 5-8 pm to view their incredible work and sample our 'Ginger Lily' cocktail plus sweet treats from our neighbors CAET, Saltine and Babalu!

'Tis the Season: Outdoor Furniture and Fabrics

Love 'em or hate 'em, the 13 year cicadas of Brood XXIII have emerged here in Jackson! With these sights and sounds of spring, long beautiful days lure us outside. There's nothing more temping than sharing that time with friends and loved ones.

But, wait... has your outdoor furniture seen better days? We're here to help!

With a myriad of outdoor furniture, fabric and accessory lines at our fingertips, updating your outdoor living space is a cinch.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Thibaut Designs' fresh, outdoor fabrics are an easy way to customize existing furniture, adding a punch of color to shabby pillows and cushions.

Outdoor living doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for comfort. No one knows this better than Lee Industries. Their outdoor furniture collection looks and feels like what you're accustomed to lounging on indoors! Best of all, it's made durable with weather resistant materials and Sunbrella fabrics. These pieces will hold up to Mother Nature's extreme weather patterns for multiple seasons.

Want an urban edge for a new space or to update an existing one?  Kannoa's cement stools (in stock in the shop) are a sleek way to incorporate durability and style.

Also, new in the shop, Jaipur's outdoor pillows give you a lot of bang for your buck  - an affordable way to liven up the smallest of spaces.

While you're out jet setting this summer... don't forget how nice it is to take your tunes along!  Vers wooden Bluetooth speakers are a convenient and versatile way to carry your music with you. The packaging and speaker itself are sustainable and can be recycled. Also a plus, the charger doubles as a universal elecetricity converter!
