STUDIOOSS operates as a small, curated collective of highly skilled artisans that may be working with textiles, paper, furniture, bookbinding, ceramics, and other areas of applied arts. As experienced artists and designers, we know that design problems often require joining forces across disciplines and materials, and different members of our collective contribute to STUDIOOSS projects depending on the project’s needs. All members of our collective pursue diverse individual studio practices that hold to the highest standards of craftmanship.
