Porcelain Creations by Nathalie Derouet

Porcelain Creations by Nathalie Derouet

A set of astonishing creations by French artist Nathalie Dérouet. I’m not one to bring across many artistic works, as I’m quite a functional individual and don’t admire a gallery setting for a number of reasons, but often I find myself taking inspiration from forms in this category (even if it be from a distance). These porcelain pieces are exceptional and quite architectural, smooth exteriors like walls, reminding me of the surfaces that some of …

Marion Berrin photographs Le Corbusier’s La Radieuse

Today I’ve been around the houses in search for content, as my first preference is always to try and find a short film as I feel that these best convey a project, especially if they involve some kind of interview with the creative minds behind each. A handful of topics however, like architecture for example, rarely get regular documentation via a film, so I’ve turned my attention to photography …

Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Leslie Williamson Photographs Constantin Brancusi’s Atelier

I better insert a spoiler alert before we begin today as I’ve once again raided the blog of photographer Leslie Williamson as she puts together the second edition of her handcrafted modern book. Now I really hope I’m not revealing too much that is to reach the final publication, I’m assuming these are really great outakes that Leslie has decided to tease us all with online. With every new …

New Zealand born photographer Mary Gaudin has been impressing me lately with a selection of photography over on her portfolio website, particularly a section of it which documents a variety of architects homes and builds. Three of my favourites feature here, Alvar Aalto, his home and and office in Helsinki, Mies van der Rohe, The Barcelona Pavilion in Spain, and Le Corbusier …

Sculpture by Le Corbusier

Sculpture by Le Corbusier

I pulled across some fantastic sculpture from the one and only Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, a genius in my eyes who always inspires me to get creative. I guess you could class this work as later in his life, for example the above piece titled “Little Secret” was created in 1962 which is only three years from his death in 1965. I’m not sure why but I’m always attracted to his later works, they seem to be …
