The cover page for this chapter features Maggie Wang's beautiful soaps (shown above). In her write-up she explains:
I began making soaps when my husband's co-worker lost his wife to cancer. That's when I realized how many harmful chemicals go into our daily cleaning products. I then began my ever-evolving quest for the all-natural soaps: I'm always hunting for natural ingredients, natural scents, and natural colorants.She also focuses on using animal fats in her recipes. Her designs are modern and striking.
I am almost finished with the second chapter and will post a preview of that one as well. In the meantime, you can get another preview of a featured artist by signing up for the newsletter (click here). You'll receive a desktop wallpaper featuring A*Kang (also part of the Philosophy chapter) and an excerpt of her write-up.
I look forward to sharing more of the book with you. It's coming out beautifully, thanks to the incredible work of the soap makers and Erin Pikor's photography. I know you will love it!
