Short Film on Brooklyn Glass

I’m afraid there’s somewhat of an emphasis on the “short” element of this film today but it’s a project that resonated with me somewhat earlier so I felt it was worthwhile showcasing despite the fact. I’d like it to be a little longer and I’m sure after watching you will too, but it is what it is, and even though this is concise it’s still an insightful project that the Tumblr team have put together. Here we discover the workshop of Brooklyn Glass as a means of …

I’m sure if you’re anything like me it’s a real joy …

Short Film on Woodturner Robin Wood

It’s not everyday that we are lucky enough to come across a film documenting a maker perfecting their craft, but today I’m excited to highlight the work of woodturner and artisan Robin Wood who is based in Peak District, England.

Unlike other woodturners he uses a manual system of pulleys and levers controlled …

It’s projects and people like this that make my day, those immersed in their own creative bubble, striving to create products that have life and soul, quality and purpose. If you’ve not caught the latest film by Jamie and Keith they’ve been asked by the Crafts Council of Ireland to put together a comprehensive curation of craft and design which follows a few familiar faces to us and introduces a few new ones also.
