Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal

Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal

When me and Daniel decide to showcase videos on the blog we’re often wary of the length, as we know many people can get distracted when watching long pieces. Today I’m going to throw this rule out of the window as I point you towards a piece titled ‘Place of Hope, The Kasama Community and the Great Ordeal’, directed by Henry Mochida and Mike Douglass. It’s a 26 minute film and was made …

The Moulthrop Family of Woodturners

The Moulthrop Family of Woodturners

I thought we’d look into the life of the Moulthrop family today as I watched this wonderful documentary last night run by PBS titled Craft in America which was deeply inspiring. The Craft in America series has been running for quite a while, but as a European citizen we don’t really hear too much about these sorts of shows, but luckily for us we’re able to watch them all on the PBS website. To pinpoint the exact segment that I’m on about …

An Interview with Toshiko Takaezu by D.B.Long

An Interview with Toshiko Takaezu by D.B.Long

Now I know this film is slightly old but I thought it would be a great piece for all of you watch today, I haven’t seen it before and the views seem surprisingly low so I’m guessing others haven’t either. It’s a short interview produced by D.B.Long with ceramic artist Toshiko Takaezu, someone who Daniel’s discussed here before, so you may have seen her work knocking around in the archives …

Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

So this is quite a tough post to write really, I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been on and off writing about furniture and such over the past few weeks but this particular one is more about a film and someones work, it was all inspired thanks to an interview I came across last night. The specific interview revolved around a different photographer that goes by the name of Pedro E. Guerrero …

Coast Modern Film

Coast Modern Film

We’ve been having a lot of fun lately searching up different pieces of architecture and reading lots of books about modernism in general. Obviously some of our favourites are past designers such as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Eero Saarinen and the almighty Alvar Aalto. But obviously we’re not just restricted to what’s happened before us, there are plenty of great designers out there who’re producing some stunning residential architecture …

Tableware by Sue Paraskeva

Tableware by Sue Paraskeva

Here you can see some beautiful creations by Sue Paraskeva, a potter and artist who’s situated in the Isle of Wight. I originally came across her a couple of months ago on Vimeo but I decided not to bring the video onto the blog because it had a crazy amount of views and I didn’t want to regurgitate the same content that was already across the web. But as time’s passed it made sense to step away from the hype and focus on the tableware that she …
