Chaz Cole : BRYLO STUDIO

It all started with paper and iron: soft, thick, 100% cotton paper juxtaposed with heavy, 100-year-old cast iron. Together with hand-mixed ink and polymer plates, these materials are the foundation for modern letterpress: a method of printing that uses antique presses to print with debossed, tactile impression.

Luc Nadeau: Nature’s Casket

On Election Day, we stopped by the backyard studio of Luc Nadeau, owner of Nature’s Casket, an eco-casket company in Longmont. Mat had been in and out of the studio all day taking photographs of Nadeau’s process. When I arrived, I quietly watched Luc work from the doorway of the studio as he was furiously sanding the most beautiful and minimal coffin ever. Luc appeared as a dark masked figure amidst a dense cloud of sawdust. When he turned the sander off, the sawdust settled to the ground and fell onto his neatly arranged tools and every other surface in his studio. He kindly took a break for a few minutes to talk to both Mat and me about his work.

Jo Kimbrell : Stand-up Mom, Stay at Home Comic

Jo is entertaining and clever, she comes across as a quirky 80’s television game show host. She has a big and vibrant personality, she knows how to play the room and work a crowd. The taproom was filled with tables and chairs that were all occupied with people. I did not expect to see so many people in the crowd and was happy to see a full house.
