Hand Blown Glassware by Sempli Design

How about we add some superb glass tumblers and vessels into the mix today. I’m a big admirer of functional items that serve a humble purpose in day to day life, often the ones we take for granted and that slip in to the back of our mind without a second thought.

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

We’ve consciously tried to take a step back from the platform over the past few days and have really wanted to staple down the direction that we want to take in order to reach our end goal.

Collection of work from Derek Weidman

Collection of work from Derek Weidman

In recent months I’ve become really fascinated by the art of wood turning and the beautiful forms that you can create.

Therefore most imagery is either poorly …

We love seeing objects being made, I think there’s something quite enticing about seeing block materials transformed into a new form, particularly if it’s wooden. Joe White who is based in Aldershot here in England humbly works with wood each day crafting bespoke handmade guitars, that really are a beauty to behold.

Making Stationary with Makr Carry Goods

A brand favorite of ours here on the site is Jason Gregory’s Makr Carry Goods, we’ve had the opportunity to interview him in the past, and we just love what he’s creating. Not only does Jason and his team design and pattern all of their own products, but their studio produces all of the hand-sewn small goods in house. So it was hardly surprising to stumble across this delightful video this morning which …
