Ceramics by Christian Escajadillo

I’m not sure we’ve covered an individual from Peru before but that’s one of reasons I love using the platform we have, each day is a new lesson based upon the research of so many diverse, inspiring individuals. Christian Escajadillo is a ceramist I’d not crossed paths with before but his selection of stoneware and ceramic creations that are rather reminiscent of the early playful Bauhaus era really struck a chord with me, you don’t often see …

Putting together yesterday’s post on Andrew Geller and getting my hands on the vintage photographs was really exciting for me, it’s perhaps my favourite post I’ve put together here.

Transparent House photographed by Tim Van de Velde

Talking upon architecture we quickly learnt that the best source for finding great photographs is the photographers themselves, opposed to the actual firms that create each project. This perhaps sounds a little obvious but when you’re constantly on the lookout for content you soon become wise to the fact that most firms present very small images of their work online. With their websites often …
