In the Studio: Handcrafted Wall Art

When it comes to wall art, we're here to stop the show y'all. After all, art MAKES the space!
From pieces by Tat Frederick to various artist collaborations, our exclusive collection of artwork is full of unique pieces that your neighbor ain't gonna have. While a few of these pieces are prints, the majority of our offerings are handmade by studio artists. Intricate and involved, the processes used in the creation of these pieces are truly noteworthy. Did someone say #howitsmade? Read on for a look at how some of our favorites are created.


A true labor of love, each Merigold artwork is hand-crafted in the Jen Lin studio. The creation of this piece begins with balls of clay that have been mixed and hand-rolled. Before baking in the sun for 72 hours, these balls are rolled out and flattened like dough. Each piece is then hand-painted using a variety of blue paint washes in a watercolor medium. Finally, these painted circles are arranged in a uniform pattern under an acrylic shadowbox.


Whether you're strictly white collar or go for the occasional black tie, you're sure to love Tat Frederick's Woman's Collar Series

Taking just under a week to create, each piece in the series begins as a simple silk cloth. A 3D printer is then used to print details over the silk cloth. Once the silk cloth has been 3D printed on, each collar is peeled off an adhesive sheet, hand-trimmed, and applied to a canvas. A black frame is the finishing touch on these eclectic beauties!


Art that puts the WILD in WEST.
Created in the Tat Frederick Studio, Electric Cowboy begins as a plain 'ole cowboy hat. Studio artists then hand-stitch and hand-paint each hat to create a unique, vintage appearance. Once a hat is prepped, it is attached to canvas, where neon lights are wired in through a hole and then applied around the hat edges with glue. Finally, every hat is framed in white to allow the neon colors to pop.

A piece for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Crafted from twine made with recycled materials, Caviar is handmade in the Tat Frederick studio. Its creation begins with a long strand of twine that is cut into tiny pieces, which are painted in color batches. The iconic caviar pattern is then printed on top of canvas. Like a paint by number, artisans hand-place and glue each piece of twine to the piece with tweezers. Finally, the piece is framed in gold to provide some shining contrast against the blue design.


Make love, not war!

Handmade by artists in the Tat Frederick Studio, the production of Love and War begins with toy soldiers that are sprayed with gold paint. Cardboard is then trimmed in the shape of the word "love" and attached to the top of a canvas. Once the toy soldiers dry, each is adhered to the cardboard by hand before the entire piece is framed in wood. The result? A meticulously-crafted piece that's sure to get some conversations started in your space.


Feathered and fabulous, Lake Como features illustrations from our artist partner Anna Moem that have been brought to life in a new way by Scout.
These pieces are one of the more time-consuming to create in the studio. It all starts with a blank canvas that is hand-painted by artists with a vibrant background and birds. Once a foundation for the feathers has been established, an artist hand-cuts each feather from paper and carefully places each onto the piece with glue. After the glue has dried, a white frame helps to tie it all together.
Fun fact: this is also how the Aviary Series and Flying Fish series is created!


With words to live by, these stickies speak to the soul.
Delicately crafted by artisans in the Tat Frederick studio, No Harm begins with a blank canvas. An artist then roughly paints the phrase "Do No Harm" in colors that correspond to the papers that will later be adhered to the piece. Once the canvas has been prepped, small rectangles are cut from colorful sheets of paper and sorted by hue. These small pieces of paper are then individually glued to the canvas, before the whole piece is framed in an acrylic shadowbox. This process is also used in the creation of Tat Frederick's Post It Monroe.
