A note from Jillian:
This collection encapsulates poignant moments from my life that are told through the sunsets (or sunrises) that were occurring in tandem. Each piece is based on a memory and the sunset (or sunrise) I witnessed at the time.
If I close my eyes, I can recall the colors, the clouds, and the feeling of each moment. Remembering these times and going through the actual design process was tremendously therapeutic—there is a definite vulnerability that exists here, which is palpable in each piece.
Each design embodies the colors and feelings of a particular time in my life; some of complete elation and love, and others of gut-wrenching sadness. It’s a love letter to Hotdad (Tim, my husband & co-owner of Marrow), it’s the pinch-me-moments of watching my daughters running through the sand laughing and playing, it’s the kick-in-the-stomach moments when you know you’re saying goodbye to someone forever.
Designing this collection almost felt like pages being ripped out of my diary. Maybe you can relate to some of the entries, maybe not. Either way, I hope something stirs inside when you see these pieces and read the inspiration behind them.
