Gateway Open Studio Tour Tomorrow!!

Please join Flux as we open for the Gateway Open Studio Tour tomorrow from 12-5!

We are pleased to announce that as part of our Open House tomorrow we will be showcasing a capsule collection by local DC designers Aphra Adkins and Natala Covert.

Through this capsule collection Aphra Adkins and Natala Covert explore the intersection of natural and man-made materials and their utility.
Adkins’ intention is to explore texture, shape and volume through the manipulation and ornamentation of a single, basic fabric.
Inspired by natural beauty, Covert utilizes found objects such as bones, wood, stone, and creates a new sense of preciousness with each material. On and off the body her work explores the inevitable movement of wearable art. 
NMC Jewelry was launched last December by Takoma Park native Natala Margaret Covert. Covert graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia with a BFA in Crafts in 2009. Aphra Adkins is a designer based in Washington, D.C. Her work focuses on wearable art, both ready to wear and couture.
