Tze's off-registry tips

Our founder Tze Chun lists her favorite art ideas so you can be “that” wedding guest - the one with the best gift. From art objects by IN.SEK to colorful paintings by Anastasia Greer, these pieces are sure to become treasures in the happy couple’s home.

Object of Your Eye

IN.SEK, "T/304" ($160)

A contemporary take on the traditional keepsake box. This box by IN.SEK is one-of-a-kind and made of hand-poured concrete, crushed stone, and quartz with a solid teak lid.

Ben Skinner, "NIGHT NIGHT" ($320)

NIGHT NIGHT by Ben Skinner to wish the couple happiness for all their days and nights to come.

Andrew Molleur, "Pillar" ($540)

People aren’t perfect, and flaws are what make them unique. In this work, Andrew Molleur uses the Japanese process of Kintsugi to fill a split that occurred during the firing process with gold.

Rebeca Raney, "Backwards Benny (Small)" ($60)

Benny the Llama looks backwards at the past, while stepping forward. A poetic reflection on all the couple has accomplished, and a nod to their bright future ahead.

Colorful Contrasts

Anastasia Greer, "Sand in Your Navel" ($480)

Make the honeymoon last forever with this painting on sewn silk by Anastasia Greer that will keep the pink sand beaches fresh in their minds.

Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, "Slide Frame" ($545)

Adam Frezza and Terri Chiao’s wall sculptures reflect different colors on the wall as well as the interlocking planes.

Xochi Solis, "It's just one heart in a million that feels the way I do" ($305)

Love is complex and beautifully layered. This piece by Xochi Solis is perfect, and even literally says “I do.”

Nesting

Kristin Texeira, "Vase of dry flowers" and "Two plants by the sink" ($745 each)

Kristin Texeira creates unique oil-paintings from memory, recalling objects that hold meaning.

Allison Reimus, "Vessel #2" ($525)

The “Vessels” series by Allison Reimus are a triple threat: Pottery (9th Anniversary), Paper (1st Anniversary) and Lace (13th Anniversary)!

Chad Kouri, Chad Kouri, "A Wide Smile & Home Accessories" ($770) and "Sweet Tea Pitcher (Ceramics)" ($475)

I love these two works by Chicago-based artist Chad Kouri because they reference the tradition of gifting housewares, but through colorful silkscreen and collage.

Perfect Pairs

Josie Stevenson, "Fractions 02" and "Fractions "04" ($425 each)

Collage works bring together elements from different sources, creating something beautiful and harmonious in the process. Josie Stevenson’s “Fractions” series are a perfect example.

Liesl Pfeffer, "Topaz" and "Yellow Diamond" ($1050 each)

Diamonds are of course fitting for the occasion, but all of Liesl Pfeffer’s gems complement the most traditional or alternative bride.

Kate Roebuck, "Small Potted Polkadot One" and "Small Potted Polkadot Two" ($230 each)

A perfect pair for the perfect couple. These playful paintings on paper by Kate Roebuck have beautiful deckled edges and the best part: no watering required.

Opening photographs by Kate Ignatowski.
