Handmade Ceramics by Designlump

This is a brilliant post for any of you with those last minute buying needs, especially if you’re located near Canada or around that area. When I’m searching on the web it’s always great to come across a website that’s run by an independent that has beautiful functional items, all of which are photographed expertly and are made with quality in mind. You certainly know when a designer has an eye for what looks good! Chifen Cheng is the …

Sara Flynn Exhibition at Erskine, Hall & Coe

Sara Flynn Exhibition at Erskine, Hall & Coe

I thought we’d return with a little update on Erskine, Hall and Coe today as they run a great deal of exhibitions that are well worth making a trip to see. They introduced me previously to the work of Mexican artist Gustavo Perez, which I highlighted to a few of you here, and today I was pleased to come across an artist working a bit closer to home, Sara Flynn who’s based in Cork, Ireland. Her exhibition at Erskine closes on Thursday so I …

Short Film on Wire Sculptor Rodger Stevens

Short Film on Wire Sculptor Rodger Stevens

It feels great to return to an artist, creative or craftsman and offer them a little further coverage, given many of these independents are on quite a personal journey with their work, it’s interesting to see what makes each one tick.

Fray Leon House by 57 Studio Architects

Fray Leon House by 57 Studio Architects

I thought I’d begin the week with a slice of architecture as I’ve not come across too much myself since thursday’s film with the one and only Jen’s Risom. Today I’ve opted for more of a recent build with this contemporary design from Chile, created by architectural firm 57 Studio. I felt what really made Jens’ home was the careful selection of interesting objects around the home within quite an understated and simplistic house design …

New Feature: Interview with Mira Nakashima

New Feature: Interview with Mira Nakashima

We are excited to return with out interview format today, as it’s a section of the platform we’ve missed being involved with given the fact we get the opportunity to connect with so many aspirational individuals. It’s had to take a bit of backseat if we’re honest as we’ve looked to move the site forward on another evolution. I promise this break has been more than worthwhile however as it’s freed up time for Mark to slave away on …
