Pottery Works by Kazunori Ohnaka

As we take a little break here on the blog for Christmas I often find myself routing around online for inspiration, especially when the weather is bad and I’m stuck inside. Today happens to be one of those days, but I was lucky enough to come across a fantastic collection of works by Japanese potter Kazunori Ohnaka. The internet is bound to slow down a little so hopefully this will fuel your fire if you’re into pottery, craft, or have a general …

Architecture and Interior Design by Robert Mills

The great thing about this job is that you get to discover, you’re always learning fresh approaches, concepts, and ideals from all over the world.

These porcelain pieces are exceptional and quite architectural, smooth exteriors like walls, reminding me of the surfaces that some of …

Wood Turned Vessels by Andy DiPietro

I’ve not highlighted a woodturner for a little while, and it’s a technique I’m really fascinated by, so I’ve been on the hunt this morning to see what I can find in this area.

We are quickly running out of fresh excuses for our obsession with Japanese craft and design, however I’ve been admiring another creative from that neck of the woods today so I thought I’d stay true to tradition and highlight the work of potter Kai Jun Asai in today’s post. I came across his work via another web shop called Kurashi-Yohin, who also have some beautifully handcrafted objects perfectly presented in a series of candid photographs …
