Phillips Collection announces the prolific Karla d'Lara Collection

Phillips Collection’s gives us a sneak peek of their most exciting collection to date. Introducing Mexican artist Karla d’Lara.
In spirit of bringing artists to center stage in the furnishings community, we are announcing an exclusive and grand introduction of her sculptures, tables, and accessories for 2011. During the upcoming furniture market in Las Vegas, we will have one hundred and fifty of her works on display at one of our flagship showrooms at the World Market Center (Suite A202).

Karla began to study photography as a teenager during summer trips abroad, and it became her first great passion. After taking advanced courses and accumulating plenty of experience, she traveled through Europe, Asia, and the Americas capturing the images of different cultures. Karla is able to amalgamate her ideas with the help of skilled and exacting craftsmen, who have shared their homegrown techniques from workshops in Tonala, Jalisco, a hotbed of artists and great authors. A case in point is artist Salvador Rabelero, an expert in ceramics, glass, pigment combinations, acrylic paintings and mixed techniques. Today he is Karla’s inseparable partner in artistic creation.
