Work of Art: Nadia Yaron
Capturing the beauty of transient events (think: a fallen leaf, gust of wind, or passing clouds) and “the fragility of nature,” sculptor Nadia Yaron carves organic forms from wood, stone and metal before lifting them with a chain lift, rigged from the rafters of her 19th century Hudson, NY home studio, and stacking them into beautiful, teetering totemic sculptures.
Page Turner: The People We Keep by Allison Larkin
Written by internationally bestselling author Allison Larkin, this novel is a beautiful, unflinching tale for anyone who has ever yearned for the power of found family or to grasp the profound beauty of choosing to belong.
Created by the endlessly inspiring Katherine Power (of Who What Wear, Versed, and Avaline), Merit has found a much-deserved place on our vanity and in our make-up bag.
