Like many artists, Dyanne Williams experimented with a variety of mediums before sticking with the one that suited and intrigued her the most: mosaics. At her Beverly Hills studio, she not only constructs works for her own oeuvre, but also leads small, intimate classes of no more than six students. Each pupil is invited to choose a project and work at the pace they're most comfortable with?which makes her courses suitable to all experience levels, including advanced artists and anyone who thinks a mosaic is the French word for "music."
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
Everything about Brian’s Shave Ice evokes the tropics: the bright mural of surfboard and palm trees on the wall, the tiki-style furniture, and syrups made of cane sugar flown in from Hawaii. The sweet sauces decorate spheres of fine snow crafted using ice shavers from Japan. Their flavors have included watermelon, mocha frappe, and a strawberries-and-cream flavor with strawberry syrup that’s made in house. Patrons can opt to fill their ice balls with azuki beans, creamy dollops of ice cream, or mochi—a dulcet rice paste that assumes a pleasant chewiness when chilled. Shelves in the shop brim with intriguing ingredients, including green-tea paste, pearls of tapioca, Ghiradelli chocolate, and organic acai. Brian’s also serves cones of Dole Whip, a pineapple-flavored soft-serve treat normally difficult to find outside of Oahu, Disneyland, or kitchens where somebody is trying to figure out what a platypus eats.
