Artist Profile: Theresa Himmer

Iceland is just magical and cool.

Artist Theresa Himmer makes it even more so.
She makes glitter graffiti installation art. Magic!!!

NEW SHOP!!!!! Nora's Novitys

Subversive and Snarky Ceramics and Pottery

I paint on ceramics, porcelain, pottery, and whatever I can get my hands on! You can hang my pieces on a wall for funky home decor, or use them everyday.

My pieces deal with the discord of naughty words, queer identity terms, and feminist icons being painted onto flowery vintage china, porcelain, and pottery.

I love to take vintage china and mix in troublemakers, sexuality, feminism, queers, and whimsey.
Join me in saying NO to conservative stuffy tea parties. Say YES to fun.

I hope that my pieces make you do a double take. I hope you are titillated by my work. I hope you will to use these pieces to decorate your home, for an inappropriate tea party, or to make a lover smile when you serve them cake.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE to do custom work!!!
Need a gift for your kinky friend? Best friend? Punk Rock Homemaker? Your lover? Your mom? I will do CUSTOM pieces, with discounts for friends!!!

Or maybe you just need to buy yourself a mug that says 'butch queen' for xmaz.

I met up with the King

I met up with the king
He confessed his body was burning
I met up with the king
His body had begun to rot
And he said don't think less of me
I'm still the same man I used to be

But no one believed him

No one believed him

I once knew a pretty girl

And she was in love with the world
And she loved a young man
Who loved her body but never saw her mind
He took everything she had kept
And then he took everything else that was left

But no one believed her

No one believed her

I feel just like the king

As I fall on the muddy ground
I feel just like you
There's people thinking
They know something now
Well I don't know anything at all
And we mean nothing to history
Well thank God

So tell me do you believe me?

Do you believe me?
I bet you don't
I bet you won't

Lyre Bird is better than you. (nature wins)

The Lyre bird is realness. 
When I first learned about the Lyre bird, I thought it was faking. 
I was so wrong. David Attenbourough schooled me. 
The Lyre bird is best. You can't even TRY to get on its level. 
Oh and David Attenbourough is the coolest. 
He wins at ANIMAL KINGDOM SAVVY and is basically best. He is so good the lyre bird wants to talk like him. I wish he would read me stories with his calming voice of knowledge.

"A lyrebird's call is a rich mixture of its own song and any number of other sounds it has heard. The lyrebird's syrinx is the most complexly-muscled of the songbirds, giving the lyrebird extraordinary ability, unmatched in vocal repertoire and mimicry. Lyrebirds render with great fidelity the individual songs of other birds and the chatter of flocks of birds, and also mimic other animals, human noises, machinery of all kinds, explosions, and musical instruments. The lyrebird is capable of imitating almost any sound — from a mill whistle to a cross-cut saw, and, not uncommonly, sounds as diverse as chainsaws, car engines and car alarms, fire alarms, rifle-shots, camera shutters, dogs barking, crying babies, and even the human voice. Lyrebirds are shy birds and a constant stream of bird calls coming from one place is often the only way of identifying them and their presence."
Are you ready to be AMAZED BY NATURE???

Are you skeptical? Let's go to Australia then.

And finally, David Attenbourough VS. Lyre Bird.

Glam glam thank you ma'am!

my words are diamond sharp today

you are not alone

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine one, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

Unexpected Color

I am currently obsessed with creating unexpected color combinations for the Fall and Winter season. Pastels sneaking in where they aren't supposed to be. Chocolate Browns and Fall Leaves next to Lemon Meringue and Blue Skies. Here are three collections of color combos I've been taken with.
