Whole Foods design 12 MIN, 54 SEC

If there's one grocery store that seems to have tapped into the zeitgeist -- at least of health-conscious Angelenos -- it's Whole Foods. But is it the power of the products, or the character of the stores themselves? We talk to Deborah English, an interior designer based in Pasadena who is disrupting the supermarket experience. She has spent 15 years working with Whole Foods on all aspects of store planning and design, both in Los Angeles and now nationwide.

Ben Medansky 5 MIN, 18 SEC

In late July a fire from a blown transformer in a Downtown LA pallet yard spread into the studio of ceramicist Ben Medansky. The studio was destroyed, but out of the ashes came something unexpected. Now he's focused on rebuilding his studio -- with help from his friends who've donated through a GoFundMe site.
