My mom just dug this paper vending machine out of storage. Wow!

I was eight when I made this. Notice the sweet dispensing action.

Lea Redmond is always looking for the poem hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.

    How cool. When I was little, I used to make post office boxes on put them on my bedroom door and make mail and deliver it all over the house!! 🙂

    Wow . . . so what you’re saying is that all of that education between then and now hasn’t harmed your artistic sensibilities (but maybe has changed you relationship to global brands) 🙂
