This soft enamel lapel pin with metal backing is the Creekside Studio logo, designed and collaborated by our ardent small business supporter Dr. Allen Cline – and Creekside Studio/founders artist Jun Wan and Master Printer Tracy Mayrello. Creekside is also supported by founders Master Printer Cordelia Blanchard and photographer Tina Weitz. Artist and Master Lithographer Veronica Ceci is also a studio artist in our Creekside community.
We hope our logo message enriches your daily journey.
Profits from the purchase of this lapel pin support our small business, women in business, women printmakers and for the print shop to continue working, creating and publishing art with other artists in our Austin, Texas studio – funding studio growth through wish list items such as tools, technology and printmaking equipment.
From Dr. Cline, “The Creekside Studio seal is modeled after a traditional Chinese Yang style Seal. The characters “Xi Pan” (meaning Creekside) are seen in Cinnabar red. They incorporate radicals within which include meanings of water’s movement through space – and questions of how this takes place. The carp is seen floating in the seal, creating movements in the water that both bring luck and creativity to the process. Water is the element of creativity, but it is also the ground substance from which all life springs. Together as an image this seal represents all that Creekside Studio has to offer. Art, collaboration, education and inspiration.”
Pin size is approximately 1″ wide by 0.8 ” high and has a metal push pin back.
When wearing our logo, may both luck and creativity flow with you.
