136 FALL 2019 I look for sentimental meaning in everyday objects. Something that sparks emotion or memories. " 5000 W 134th Street Leawood, KS 66209 DEMDACO.COM 888.DEMDACO (888.336.3226) Showrooms Atlanta | Dallas | Las Vegas Scan QR code to visit our virtual showroom Stephanie Farley designer Stephanie Farley's designs are eclectic and reflect a love of the treasure hunting adventures she pursued as a young girl growing up around her grandparent's farms. This experience kindled a respect and passion for flea market finds, especially vintage utilitarian pieces, materials and hardware. As a designer, Stephanie goes beyond the physical piece, searching for the deeper stories behind those cherished items. Her vision is to bring those stories to life through her own creative expression. Stephanie displays that vision in her reimaging of a simple vase with a powerful gesture. Her collection of hand-sculpted, dipped and painted Just Because stoneware vases are an extension of the popular Gatherings collection. She believes Just Because giving is just as important as special occasion giving. Each vases minimal design and sentiment invites us to live and give kindness without reason. "Why another vase? I wondered that, too. As I do with all my design explorations, I look deeper. I want to find a connection and meaningful purpose. That's the beauty of the Just Because line, that was the heart of it. I explored the idea of not needing a reason to be kind. I found connection and inspiration in the general spirit of giving and our mission at DEMDACO, lift the spirit and improve someone's day. You don't need a reason to be kind. If you can share the gift of kindness, you're making the world a better place." Just Because Small Vases "
