Inspired By Nature: Kathleen Dustin

The topic of taking inspiration from one place to create something new and amazing in another never ceases to amaze me.  These bags, clearly inspired by nature and flowers, are the creative work of Kathleen Dustin of New Hampshire.  They are made of polymer clay and they are truly exquisite.  Kathleen’s bags are inspired by gardens which is what lead me to her, but I am inspired by her – particularly her most recent blog post about perseverance in a weak economy…..yes, I would have to agree, there is always a market for excellence and craftsmen will survive.  Good to remember.

Kathleen is an amazing craftswoman….I would love to attend a formal event, exquisitely dressed, carrying the Nigella pod bag (above) or really any of these beautiful hands bags.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
