Mid-Centuria explores art, design and décor from Bauhaus to Mid-Century Modern and beyond. Covering both fine and applied art forms, which encompasses painting, sculpture, mosaics, pottery, glass, ceramics, textile and furniture. While mainly focused on original period pieces, contemporary items that capture the original genre’s essence are also included.

What began as a search for inspiration for an art piece I was working on, soon took on a life of its own as I became enamored with discovering new art and artists. While it was never my intention to create a blog, during my quest for inspiration I discovered there were very few sites that focused on art, design and décor from genres such as Bauhaus, Brutalist and Mid-Century Modern; those that did centered mostly on furniture and architecture. This absence combined with the huge collection of images I had amassed were the impetus to starting this blog. It is my hope that you enjoy your visit and perhaps discover something that inspires you.

Mid-Centuria Workshop is the name of my “studio to be”. Hopefully sooner than later, I will begin to create some pieces that I can share with you. My plan is to work in multiple mediums including paint, wood, mosaic, concrete and plaster.  As you can probably tell from the name of my studio, most of my work will be heavily inspired by my favorite style, Mid-Century Modern. Until then…

You may notice that some images/pieces are lacking credit to either source and/or artist, this is not intentional; rather because when I found the work it was for my personal inspiration only and was never intended to share with others. Before posting, I make all attempts to locate the original source, but sometimes I am unsuccessful. If you have any additional information on the artist, piece or source, please let me know so I can share it with others.
