Shining Brightly

Getting Greener with Lighting

Emmanuelle Ceramics first lighting design for Monmade, ORIGINS’ partner program at Bridgeway, embraces biophilic design principles. The textures are made using foraged organic materials, including magnolia leaves (shown here) and oak branches, which mimic the layers of a tree canopy or forest floor when pressed in multiples. The subdued matte underglaze finishes recall natural hues. Emmanuelle created these products in her participation of the Green Leap cohort which helped creatives integrated sustainability goals in their products and processes.


Toys that Uplift

Funding Next Steps for Kool Image Dolls

Dominique Scaife is an skilled artist and designer that wanted to create toys that reflected and represented her identity and experiences. Unlike artwork, products for children require a variety of regulatory barriers to overcome to ensure the toys are safe and ready for a global market. Dominique diligently worked through all of the challenges for her dynamic product content. As a result she received funding from Bridgeway Capital to scale production of doll to serve her growing customer base.
