Short Film on Chifuyu Enomoto

Short Film on Chifuyu Enomoto

I felt a little guilty for missing out on the second instalment of the Made in Brooklyn series this morning, so I’ve been on the hunt for a film this evening as a means to make amends. Given we don’t like to regurgitate content here I felt it was best to wait and see what else was around, so with this project highlighting the craft of Japanese creative Chifuyu Enomoto I’m confident this was worth the wait. Throughout the platform it’s …

Beyond the Gardens Series by Lonelyleap

Beyond the Gardens Series by Lonelyleap

I’ve just realised that I’ve not found or wrote about any good films lately, which is shame because we’ve showcased so many terrific independent filmmakers over the years. To break my streak I’m bringing forward this video series that I came across yesterday which I thought was something quite special and seemed to strike a chord with me personally. At the moment I get inspired by greenery and all things zen, I especially like the …

Short Film on Sculptor Lance Dooley

Short Film on Sculptor Lance Dooley

Late last night I really enjoyed watching this filmed piece which introduces American artist and sculptor Lance Dooley, so I promised myself that come the morning I would return to it and share this with everyone here. The artist himself is somewhat of a traveller and you can tell this has had a massive impact on the way he looks at the world, and equally the vision he has in his artistic pursuits. After graduating from …

A look inside the house of Finn Juhl

A look inside the house of Finn Juhl

It seems only last week that we were sharing something Finn Juhl related with you all, although looking back into the archive it was a month yesterday. It’s amazing how time flies on the internet and I mention this as today marks a month of the online shop being open. I hadn’t planned to share the house of Finn today, it’s just one of those funny little coincidences which life presents you with from time to time. Back …

Short Film on Sunset Craftsmanship Co

Short Film on Sunset Craftsmanship Co

Outside of Japan these bags are really hard to get your hands on, which is a bit of a shame because here we get to see a video which showcases lots of love and attention to detail as each individual bag gets put together. I’ll have to hold my hands up and admit I’ve not seen too much else from Sunset Craftsmanship co but I’m sure if you spoke to Mark he’d know a little more about them. Personally I was taken aback by the skill …

Documentary on Potter Svend Bayer

Documentary on Potter Svend Bayer

Acknowledging a running theme of traditional craft with the daily line up, I thought I’d introduce a documentary I recently viewed which follows the work of English Potter Svend Bayer. Given we have shared lots of ceramics and pottery in the past I felt the need to source a project that would expand on what we have already highlighted and this twenty minute film does exactly this. If you have an interest not only in the …
