Artful Utility Blankets from an Artist in Residence

Alexa Hotz July 12, 2013

During a recent stint at The Workshop Residence, Jim Isermann, an artist based in Palm Springs and Guerneville, California, reimagined the humble utility blanket, creating a line of thick cotton duck canvas throws, custom dyed and silk screenedThe geometric pattern is a reflection of Isermann’s style, an interpretation of industrial design and fine art through the lens of popular culture.

The heavy blankets can be used for packing, picnicking, as a rug, bed coverlet, or as an outdoor throw. Measuring 70 inches wide by 80 inches long, the blankets are quilted and then sewn with a corduroy binding.  Each piece is $110 and is available from March in San Francisco.
