We adore these process shots that Portland-based photographer Carlie Armstrong took at the studio of Chelsea Heffner who runs PlainMADE a beautiful textile printing business. Armstrong’s website is Work.Place and it’s absolutely chock full of amazing makers and their spaces.
Here’s a photo from Andy Paiko’s glass blowing hot shop, for the upcoming premier issue of Labor magazine. I had never seen hot molten glass up close, it is so beautifully orange and bright! Andy said a common question he would get from little kids visiting the shop was, “do you ever make anything that isn’t orange?”
work.place is a blog dedicated to just that. It is a documentary about Portland creativity to understand the creative processes and the places that contain them.
I just happen to think the space people create in is interesting and inspiring which is why I fancied this idea. Check out the talented artists, musicians, designers, and craftspeople in Portland here.
