Local spotlight time!
We pride ourselves on carrying local companies and artists, and we are always looking for new additions to the Mortise & Tenon family. We wanted to take some time to show off five Regina companies and artists that we are thrilled to have in our shop!
Chad’s art embodies a truly classic, prairie feel with a modern twist. From traditional photos to acrylic over metal prints, Chad’s professional work is sharp and elegant, and is a perfect fit in any home. Chad himself is a humble, down-to-earth guy who demonstrates through his art just how much he loves the beauty of the prairies. We regularly carry different prints by Chad, providing lots of new options for beautiful art for all of you. Chad’s work truly contains the heart of the prairies.
Artist and designer MacKenzie has become well known in the city for her fun and detailed art work, and she regularly sells out of her stock at local festivals and events. Her designs range from ethereal and detailed to cute and fun, and are available in a variety of formats. When she's not busy creating new and unique designs, MacKenzie teaches yoga next door to Mortise & Tenon at Quan's Hot Yoga – which means she pops in regularly to drop off new stock like prints, cards, stickers, t-shirts, tote bags, and more!
Mermaids and Aloha
Here on the prairies, we are surrounded by a lot of beautiful scenery, but it can be easy to forget some of the other impressive places Mother Nature has to offer. This is why the fun designs from Mermaids and Aloha designer Caitie Vancise are such a breath of fresh air. Featuring sea glass, druzy stones, and simple yet elegant chains, the jewellery pieces give a little splash of the sea to any outfit, and are also very affordable, ranging in price from $21 - $35. Seeing the bright colours in our showcase makes us smile every day.
de Lint Art & Design
Gavin de Lint's art is a brand new addition to the shop, and the handmade notebooks featured in our store are only a fraction of the work that he puts out into the world. Gavin’s art ranges from sketches and paintings to animation and custom design work, which only goes to show how incredibly talented this gentlemen really is. Gavin’s dedication to his craft resonates deeply with us, as we strive for the same level of quality and attention to detail in our custom woodwork and furniture. We hope to carry more of his work in the future!
Glorious Bastards Co.
We can't say enough about these fantastic entrepreneurs from the Queen City. They reflect so much of why we do what we do! They set out to create high quality products when they felt they weren’t finding what they needed. Their hard work has clearly paid off, and they now have a large line of men’s grooming products that we can hardly keep stocked on our own shelves. The products from Glorious Bastards Co. really work, and it’s due in no small part to their focus and drive to make their passion happen. We are looking forward to sharing the new products they are developing with all of you.
And those are just five! We carry a lot of amazing artists and companies in our store, and we are really proud of the growing number of local folks we get to give a little home to – and we’re just as honoured that they choose us. Keep checking back here, and on our Facebook and Instagram, as we are always posting new additions to Mortise & Tenon.
