Give Art Objects to Arty Friends with Artware Editions

Happy holidays, people!
I have a fair number of arty friends, but generally art is too pricey, and too subjective, to give as gifts. Enter Artware Editions.

This wonderful site features mostly useful ( or at least interesting) objects designed by real artists. Take, for instance, the coasters and placemats by art legend Louise Bourgeois that would look smashing in modern or craftsman homes alike. How about the funny cat head vessel by one of my favs, Kiki Smith (this item, at over $600, has been on my personal want list for years, but to no avail). For a more affordable option, give these cocktail napkins by Nancy Dwyer (the General Malaise theme is perfect for nursing a New Year's Day hangover). And where else can you find a beach towel designed by Yoki Ono?

Browse through Artware Editions and find art to suit just about anyone, unless they're primarily a fan of paint by numbers. Then, you're on your own.
