New Collections at Andi-Le Aspen Home Accessories

“ Andi-Le Aspen”Collections of one-of-its-kind and limited edition, home accessories.

Fall is here and it is time to launch

The first collections are found in the stylish and contemporary “NOT SO” Lazy Susans.


We love to entertain here in Aspen. We like a casual but sophisticated ambience. I am always looking for ideas to mange guests but not micro-manage. As the hostess, I am always concerned that everyone gets to taste all the hors devours;

I found that my guests don’t reach across the table; they would only eat what is in front of them.

THE SOLUTION... Let’s bring back the Lazy Susan.

NEXT CHALLENGE…. After searching and googling, the styles were, uh … lets say… 1950s and brown

THE ANSWER… Into my studio I go, to create Lazy Susans with an exceptional design, style and sophistication, pieces that have the global modern aesthetic of Andi-Le. carved and embellished. 

They are definitely not your mother’s lazy susans. And they are NOT SO lazy. 3 collections (so far) and more to come.

New Collection Andi-Le Aspen

My emersion in the studio this summer caused me to go dark in the blog and social media world. Between commissioned pieces, creating a new line of serving ware, and enjoying Aspen and my horses, the days went by quickly! I have had to reorganize and prioritize my aspirations. As an artist, I want to play. As a businesswoman, I need to produce.  And there in lies the crux. Finding a rhythm and enjoying the ride is key!

Trying a selfie with Chiquita, I need longer arms!                                  Kayaking at Reudi.      AHHHHHH!









Andi-Le Aspen is the key to bringing it all together. One of its kind or limited production, home accessories that fill my need to create those special details that give a home soul.

Right now, I am concentrating on exceptionally designed trays created from reclaimed wood, giving each tray a deeper history while repurposing nature’s art.


AND…. I am very excited to launch the Andi-Le Aspen NOT SO lazy Susan Collection.

This is not your mother’s brown, wood, lazy susan!  This collection is sculptural, modern and stylish. Small editions of each design, allows me to play and create as the inspiration flows. They blend art and function perfectly. Andi-Le Aspen has a modern global aesthetic and the stamp of the artist/sculptor and craftsman. These home accents have been inspired by my lifestyle, travel, nature and a curious eye.

 Andi-Le Aspen products can be found at Check out the whole collection! As well as the great tips on entertaining, design ideas.

Do you want a glimpse into the Aspen Studio?

As an artist with a monkey mind, I am constantly thinking of new pieces I would like to create for my home. Last year I had a brilliant idea for candleholders. Of course they had to be large, bold, and always weighty. I chopped, laminated, carved texture, sanded, primed, sanded again, bought a paint sprayer (now sitting abandoned in a corner). This was just for the wood component.

In the next step, I had acrylic pieces that were sanded to an opaque finish, and glued up. I realized that the special epoxy moved….for quite awhile…… keeping me on the movement watch for much longer than anticipated in order to be straight. Let’s not forget that candleholders need a something to secure the candle incase of a bump, and causing a lit candle to roll off. (No need to explain, I am sure). This step had me grinding this small metal piece to insert on the top of the candleholder.

Countless hours, and a few tears later, I had several sets of these pretty fabulous candleholders. All have since sold. Chequers of Aspen carried them as well as The Picket Fence in Sun Valley, Idaho and Menlo, CA.

  Like childbirth, (I think), the laborious memory faded and I had an epiphany, Let’s do those candle holders in a different way.

Let’s try leather hide in place of the acrylic, so I chopped, laminated, ROUTED, carved texture, sanded, primed, sanded, and sprayed again… (Sprayer is back in the corner). This time I bought beautiful croc cowhides, cut strips, steamed them to be more pliable, nailed them, glued, steamed again, glued some more… and Voila,

So after more countless hours, a few less tears, I created 6 sets of these candleholders. I am not sure I will create this “child” again.   But maybe………

So that was  a little insight to how it goes creating accent pieces in the Andi-Le studio, from an idea to conception to the finished project.
