Winning Ticket - Joy, Pride, and a Job Well Done
Winning Ticket is an Iowa City, Iowa based contemporary design source driven by Suzanne Bradley. The goal is to create objects that add to the beauty and comfort of the space they occupy.
The objects of Winning Ticket are made by the absolute best local craft and tradespeople. Lighting and bowls are made by Suzanne Bradley by hand. Materials are considered for their sustainability, transportation impact, and quality. Often materials are partnered unconventionally to create interesting collaborations. Her focus on beauty, as well as fun, is blended with simple modern forms using materials with integrity.
Beside designing and creating her own work, Suzanne also teaches 3D design at the University of Iowa, is lead designer for Martin Construction in Iowa City, and takes many many pictures of RV’s ;)
The name Winning Ticket comes from years ago when one of her daughters, Violet, came home from school ecstatic from receiving a 'ticket' for a job well done. She smiled widely and said 'Mama, you can have my winning ticket!'. A gesture so generous and full of pride should be remembered, so it became the founding ideal for this work; Joy, Pride, and a Job Well Done.
