8E subscription series

(guest post by Thea Eck)

The 8E Quarterly Subscription Series is now live! 

Spring's paper piece is We are building and measures 4"x3.5"x2.5"

The 8E Quarterly Subscription features 4 art & design pieces, Spring (March 1), Summer (June 1), Fall (September 1) and Winter (December 1), sent directly to your door. It rotates between paper, wood, ceramic and then a collaborative piece in paper and wood. Each piece is a surprise: It is announced 1 month before the ship date.  It is then available for a 3-month window. You can sign up any time during those 3-months, but after that time period, the piece is then not available until 2 months later in our general collection and at a premium rate.

We are building shown on Blomst Single shelf, found in the Eight Emperors Collection.

For example, if you sign up anytime between February 1 - April 30, you will receive Spring's paper piece, then a wood piece in early June, a ceramic piece in early September and a collaborative piece in early December. If you sign up anytime between May 1 - July 30, you will receive June's wood piece, then September, December and finally March 2014's piece. The 1-year subscription cycles into 2014.

We are building utilizes a curved cut-score technique on a single sheet of acid-free archival paper.

For $200 plus shipping, you receive 4 pieces, handmade in our studios in Ann Arbor, Michigan from archival and sustainable materials. The 8E Quarterly Subscription is a simple way to begin an art & design collection and a great gift for any art & design lover! You can sign up here.

Summer features a wood piece
