Refined Simplicity, Artistry, and Luxury.
Sophisticated and organic. Textured and smooth, decorative and unadorned.
These very contrasts, often borrowed from nature inform the relaxed, yet sophisticated style that defines Rhythm & Myrrh. Our line of women’s wear is characterized by a joyous blending of interesting textures, color combinations and contrasts using beautiful, high-quality fabrics. Rhythm & Myrrh offers meticulously constructed, timeless clothing designed for the contemporary woman who enjoys expressing her own unique style.
Each carefully crafted garment in our collection has a story to tell. Our luminous silk chiffon blouses constructed of the finest Indian and Chinese silk not only look beautiful but feel luxurious. Supple, textured Italian wool jackets, exquisitely tailored trousers made from English linens and organic cotton tops are much more than vestments—they become an expression, a statement of the wearer. We enjoy using natural fabrics for both their intrinsic beauty and harmonious connection to the earth. These time-honored fabrics combined with masterful craftsmanship elevate our garments—akin to gifts or objects d’art, they are meant to be treasured.

I often describe my glass fusion work as "painting with glass." My contemporary fusing methods involve stacking or layering sheets of glass, combining transparent and opaque glass to create patterns reminiscent of patchwork quilts. Throughout the process, I use a wet lap grinder and wet saws to refine the glass and create the smoothness of the finished product.
My glass fusion pieces are distinct and vibrant. They are art in the form of displayable yet functional glasswork, such as platters, serving bowls, and sushi sets. I revel in the old-world craftsmanship of glass fusion and the attention to detail it requires, yet find joy in infusing my functional art with a sense of whimsical and expressionistic color.
I make each piece by hand in my home-based San Anselmo studio where I am happy to find that no two pieces of my glasswork are ever alike.
We are proud of the business we have built hiring women from all backgrounds within our community, including interns from the local public high school. We are passionate about, and committed to, the products we create. Watching our collective growth is so rewarding!

What began as a bedtime story for his children slowly blossomed into a multi-award-winning children's book about protecting earth.
Land Wilson was born and raised in Marin County, California. Growing up in an area known for its strong environmental leadership, he developed a deep appreciation for nature as a child. Land’s motivation for writing Sofia's Dream stemmed from a desire to teach his children and others what he had learned about the importance of caring for nature. He had read that viewing the Earth from a distance was an experience that genuinely transforms a person’s thinking about our planet, so as part of his research he interviewed three Apollo astronauts. These interviews ultimately served as his inspiration to write what would one day become Sofia's Dream.
The publication of Sofia's Dream has led Land to fulfill a lifelong dream of teaching young people about protecting earth. Through his writing, school assemblies, and environmental projects, his purpose is to awaken in young people the desire to demand what is rightfully theirs... clean water, land, and air.

Glass Cathedrals are a series of tiny worlds in boxes.
Magical, absurd, comic, tragic, poetic, each box contains an entire emotional world, with figurines not much taller than a pea. Many boxes are uniquely customised.
The ideas behind the Glass Cathedrals are based on thoughts I’ve been having since I was a child: “I’m scared to jump into the pool. Glitter is as precious as gold! How can I feel so big and so small at the same time?” Running through my thoughts was a common theme – that opposites can co-exist in the same space and time. Fear and bravery, absurdity and meaning, inside and out, big and small.
Many people have these moments of inspiration about what it is to be a funny little human traveling around a big planet. What to do with these thoughts? I started putting mine in boxes…
To stop for a moment and peer into the lives of others in miniature proportions, has a curious emotional effect. The empathy we feel for the tiny figures in the boxes – struggling but resolute – can lead to a profound feeling of compassion for others – and for ourselves.

Transformation has been my theme (not by choice . . . in fact, more like kicking & screaming) the past few years. My love of refurbishing reflects my belief in second chances. We all deserve a second (and a third) chance. Nothing in life is perfect, and it's in this imperfection where true beauty lies. Each piece has "character" and is unique and tells its own story. They all have their own scars from their former lives, but just like people, I think this adds to the beauty of what they are.
I learned early on that I adore creatimg unique but very wearable pieces. I migrated from Kennebunkport, Maine to Larkspur, California continuing to perfect my technique working beside local artisans while being immersed in the couture culture of California.
In addition to hard work and my absolute love for creating new trends, I credit much of my success to the inspiration I draw from the people in my life. My style is defined by its simplicity and multi-generational appeal. Each one of my pieces draws a bit of character from an amazing woman that I have met on my journey. My underlying philosophy reflects in the circles predominant in much of my work, “what you give to others comes back full circle”.
