walteria living + mark mothersbaugh

i've been a big fan of mark mothersbaugh's music for some time now. his soundtracks always have such an wonderful, otherworldy feel and a sense that whoever is tinkering with the blips and bleeps really knows what they're doing. the life aquatic was one of my favorites as well as the simple theme he created for the rugrats animated show years ago. i couldn't stand the show but i loved the music. so it's no surprise that mark's new collection with walteria living would be just as interesting. mark's black forest collection features imagery that is a digital mutation of an illustration from a nineteenth-century pictorial archive of avian species. in addition to the black forest collection (which includes a 5-piece place setting and cuckoo clock), mark is releasing a series of vases and plates called the postcard diaries. inspired by downtime during world-wide devo tours in which mark would draw on the back of postcards to send to friend and family, this series is fascinating in the way that we catch a glimpse into the artist's private, very personal thoughts and drawings. you can find more information on mark mothersbaugh's new work with walteria living right here.

in addition to mark's work there are beautiful new pieces from kathleen at walteria as well. i'm smitten with the bespoke series of cast pendants and endangered species bracelets (made of porcelain with a portion of the proceeds going to the wspa). they have such a rich, exotic feel to them and they can be custom monogrammed for gifts. you can view the entire collection right here and contact walteria if you're interested in any of the designs above. [thanks, kathleen!]

Oh my goodness, thanks for this Grace. I love Mark's / Devo's music and am rather enamoured with this collection.

i have know of his artwork for a while. i actually own one of his signed pieces... a large digital illustration. he has also been doing some interesting things with old found photographs. had no idea about the new work however. very exciting. perhaps my mark mothersbaugh collection will grow.

Great stuff but the site is a little challenging in terms of pricing & ordering

Are the pendants on the site? I couldn't find them...the black and gold one in particular.

What a timely entry! I just saw Devo in concert Friday night and still can't get "Gates of Steel" out of my head. I own one of Mark's pieces and love, love, love it but now I think I'll need more. :)

it's nice to see an artist that isn't resting on his laurels. what a shame that so many people think of him as 'that weird whip it guy'
