Squeaky Clean

If you’ve been using the same overly processed commercial soap for years, it’s time to switch over to something better for your body and the earth. The vegan, organic soaps from Prunella Soap make it possible to teach an old dog new tricks. Suds up with the cold process soaps made in small batches in downtown Portland. Invigorate in the morning with Stumptown coffee-infused soap or relax at night with a lavender/vanilla/oatmeal/mint combo. You’ll feel squeaky clean and have the satisfaction of knowing you aren’t putting anything bad for the environment down your drain. E.H.

Garbo Glam

On the one hand, the zebra print Garbo chair commands attention. On the other hand, the high back offers hiding when you “vant to be alone.” It’s a complicated contradiction — just like the enigmatic silver screen star. V.M.

Spiked heels

Metalworker Diana “Micki” Voohries made garden gates, stakes and trellises but was smitten by fancy footwear.  Lusting after a pair of peep-toe pumps she saw in a Eugene shop, she decided to make a pair of shoes from scrap metal. The results look like something a sexy robot might wear. Voohries worked out a trade with the store owner – sculptural heels for wearable ones – and soon found herself making more shoes than a cobbler.

“I take found objects — hardware, old tools, stuff found rummaging through garage sales — and start building,” she says.

A discarded drill bit becomes a stiletto. A bit of mesh forms a shoe top. An old bicycle chain makes a trendy T-strap. A single sculptural shoe goes for about $170. The Blue River artist sells at art shows and at the Eugene Saturday Market from the day after Thanksgiving through Dec. 24, but is reluctant to sell through shops and galleries.

“These are so much my babies and so personal,” she says, “I really need to meet the people and hear the feedback.”

The comment she most often hears?

“I would wear these if they were real shoes,” she says.

Voohries is taking the next step in footwear. She’s enrolled in a cobbling class. V.M.

Solid as a rock

Even though wool is a naturally renewable material, it would be very un-Oregon of us to not recycle our holey sweaters after it becomes apparent that so-last-season will never become retro-chic again. Fiber artist Heidi Leugers turns post-consumer wool — we’re talking the cuffs, seams, the whole nine yards — into decorative wool stones for your home. Yes, stones. Each one is modeled after a real beach or river rock. Line them up on a coffee table or display a few in a simple bowl for the perfect eco-friendly decor. E.H.

Worldly style

Persia was renamed Iran. Rhodesia became Zimbabwe. And don’t forget Halfway, Ore., put its name on the map when it changed to Half.com.

All this makes geography lessons a little confusing. Classroom cast-offs see new life as decorative elements at the Astoria Coffeehouse & Bistro.

“I had a collection of globes,” says James Defeo, who owns the bistro in this historic coastal town with partner Anthony Danton. “And people started to bring in their globes.”

A custom mix of olive green, cobalt blue and gray wall paint — Defeo calls it Astoria Green — changes dramatically with the light and sets off the globes.

Take design tips from the creative Defeo, who also stenciled the concrete floor of the former garage to look like old tiles. He and Danton “rummaged yard sales and scoured the Rebuilding Center and Rejuvenation in Portland” for trim to pay homage to Astoria’s Victorian history. They had tables and booths built from salvaged wood.

“It’s a Renaissance,” he says of recent changes in Astoria. “It’s a nice mix of the artist community and the working class community.” V.M.

Affordable art

Portland mixed-media sculptor Ivan McLean tames soft woods, hard metals and colorful glass into impressive works seen everywhere that's anywhere, from The Nines Hotel in Portland to discriminating private collections across the country.

Even if you aren't a big-time collector you too can own a piece of his work. His coat racks featuring whimsical creatures tumbling across the tops of your discarded outerwear. Add an unexpected twist to an object we can certainly use in Oregon.  E.H.
