Dissecting the Reverie Still Life - PART III

Dissecting the Reverie Still Life - PART III



LOVE.  A trip to the Carl Aubock Wekstatte in Vienna was a dream.  I went with one of my very best friends, Natasha Stanglmayr.  I’ve collected Carl Aubock brass pieces for years. It’s a fifth generation family-owned metal craft shop that has earned cult status among collectors.  (this E keychain is from them)


Oui.  This vintage spoon is engraved with a French word buried under the honey: Oui, Yes.  This woman said Yes.


When I was considering the creative direction of this shoot, I felt that Jemima Kirke particularly represented the idea of Reverie: the path to Joy.  To me, she embodies the idea of living fully and doesn’t get caught up in defining herself by other people’s standards.   I also love that she expresses her art through both acting and painting because joy is feeding your soul and finding that “thing” that incites you to daydream, to create and to celebrate. 

The little square sugar cube to the side is a small but joyful insight.  I have a collection of vintage sugar’s the small pleasures in life.
