Irreverent Artist Ashley Longshore Pays Houston a Visit

BY // 03.23.15

Witty, wickedly humorous and a little bit naughty — the new barware collection by Houston native Bailey McCarthy of Biscuit Home and irreverent New Orleans-based artist Ashley Longshore is just that. “I started collecting Ashley’s work in college and wanted to get more art and original works in the store,” McCarthy says. “So the idea of a capsule collection really made sense for both of us.” The collaboration was born of their longtime friendship and mutual “badass female admiration,” adds Longshore, whose recent collabs with Anthropologie and Blake Lively have catapulted her following into a different stratosphere. With this third collaboration, she has total creative license — in other words, anything goes. The limited-edition collection (which consists of Lucite trays, a glass champagne bucket, rocks glasses and a catch-all dish) will be introduced to the public at a cocktail party at Biscuit Home Thursday, March 26, 6 to 9 pm, alongside original full-scale pieces of Longshore’s art. The collaboration, priced $75 to $300, will be available in-store and online the next day. Biscuit Home, 1435 Westheimer Road, 713.942.9797, biscuit-home.com.
