Geode Design Studio is the Austin, Texas workshop of Stephani Rose.
I work with leather to make molded bowls, trays and the like, with painted graphic patterns influenced by an ongoing myriad of memories, images and color interactions that I encounter.
Some of my favorite and most personal work is recreating food using leather as a canvas. Most of this work consists of food presented on a separate serving piece, all executed in ballpoint pen, acrylic gouache, cowhide and wax. And occasionally 24k gold leaf...bc I do love pizza, and how better to express that. Most work shown are past commissions.
I also enjoy getting of the studio and into living spaces. My interior design consulting work has spanned 20 years. I love to create well-functioning spaces with texture and color. Whether you want to replace your sofa and don't know where to start, or you're ready to think about your whole space in completely new way, I'd love to hear more about your project.
