To celebrate Women's History Month, 1stDibs and the Female Design Council (FDC) — an action-orientated organization dedicated to providing community for all female-identifying designers — are teaming up to release a curated collection.
It includes more than 30 new exemplary works made by woman designers, artists, and craft makers. The collection "honors the magic of womxn as they balance art, family, and studio practices to make transformative work," according to a press release.
Included are works from a variety of different mediums such as textiles, ceramic, iron, glass, gold leaf, porcelain, mirror, and brass.
"It is a privilege to champion womxn in design and creativity," said Lora Appleton, founder of the FDC. "By partnering with companies like 1stDibs, we are given the resources to create opportunities to help womxn sell their work and expand their client network."
Check out some pieces by the artists included in the collection below and see the full selection here.
