Welcome NEW Boston Handmade Members!

Boston Handmade is pleased to welcome three new members to our group: Marta Harvey,
Buddy System Productions, and Pogibabies.

Trees and moon pen and ink by, Marta Harvey

Marta Harvey is a Portuguese artist who came to the United States as a young adult and began her art education with pen and ink drawing while she was in college. For many years while she was raising her children she could not find time for her art, then three years ago she discovered an internet group dedicated to mixed media and this connection reinvigorated her creativity. Since then she has made her own printing blocks and uses them to play with different media and techniques.

Bicycle Hub Candle Holder by Buddy System Productions

Buddy System Productions is made up of two friends, Alison and Ann. Together they see the beauty in everyday things and are committed to working with materials rescued from the waste stream. With backgrounds in sculpture and filmmaking they blend a variety of technical skills with visual spontaneity as they collaborate. Currently Buddy System has pieces made from bike parts and paper, and they have plans to add housewares, fabric items and tinsmith sculptures to their inventory in the near future.

Funky-O Soft Shoes and Retr-O Hat by Pogibabies

The medium of choice for Pogibabies is fabric, and Charissa, the creator of Pogibabies is continuously inspired by fabulous prints. The Pogibabies line of handmade baby/toddler accessories was created to provide hip moms with modern baby items to fit their contemporary style. These are not clothing and accessory items that you will find in the average baby store.
