Handthrown Stoneware by Kazakes Ceramics

Handthrown Stoneware by Kazakes Ceramics

Andrew Kazakes ceramics are an interesting mix of spontaneity and function. The works that intrigue me the most are those that play on two worlds, almost simplistic and refined but have added character.

Neutra Boomerang Chair by VS America

Neutra Boomerang Chair by VS America

There’s a certain list of designers that I’m always on the lookout for, usually news or information regarding their work, so this chair by Richard Neutra was definitely worthy of a showcase.

Feature with American Potter and Sculptor Adam Silverman

Feature with American Potter and Sculptor Adam Silverman

Today I’m proud to present to you all our newest feature, an interview with Los Angeles potter and sculptor Adam Silverman. As the years roll on and the site develops I always appreciate the creatives that I get to interview and the conversations I have with them. Just like you, I’m a fan myself, so I just ask them questions that I’d personally like to know, or ones that I think might be inspiring overall. I …

Architectural, Interior & Furniture Inspiration at Al Que Quiere

Architectural, Interior & Furniture Inspiration at Al Que Quiere

Looking for some wacky and wonderful inspiration in the design field? Look no further than Al Que Quiere, it’s been my go to site for a little while and I always seem to end up there through my reader. Although some of the designs and photographs are slightly off-beat for my personal style, you can’t help but admire and chuckle at some of these shots that are both vivid in colour and ironic …

Short film on Aaron Rose and The Watts Towers

Short film on Aaron Rose and The Watts Towers

I was really inspired this morning by the story of Simon Rodia and his desire to create the monumental sculpture that is the Watt Towers in Los Angles with such a humble and workman like manner. I have to admit his name is one I haven’t crossed paths with on the internet before today, however The Avant Garde Diaries put together this short film on artist Aaron Rose recently and Mr …

Tortoise Life, A Look Inside

Tortoise Life, A Look Inside

Every so often I come across shops that resonate with me and seem to be on the same wavelength as us who work here, usually these stores sell totally abstract functional products or items that I’ve never seen before. It’s a pleasure to view objects like these seen here and it peaks my interest in design again, captures something my mind that makes me analyse how a human would use these and what sort of environment they …

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 …

L.A. Cabin Living by Brian W Ferry

L.A. Cabin Living by Brian W Ferry

I’ve been super impressed with the work of photographer Brian W Ferry as of late, he’s somebody we’ve followed closely in the past and even interviewed before, so it’s always refreshing to return to his portfolio and see how things are developing for him. This particular series that I’m showcasing today was shared on his blog “The Blue Hour” which is a great resource for for inspiration, it often acts as a photo diary for the …

Peter Shire: Cups 1974 – 2012 by Eric Minh Swenson

Peter Shire: Cups 1974 – 2012 by Eric Minh Swenson

The good folks at South Willard put me onto this fantastic video based on Los Angeles based artist Peter Shire. Funnily enough last week I was actually browsing Peter’s website and it struck me how playful and comedic his work is, it’s great to know that he doesn’t take life too seriously and that he’s always experimenting. We’ve probably said this many times before about the companies …

Ceramic Lighting by Heather Levine

Ceramic Lighting by Heather Levine

As the tuesday winds down here in England I just wanted to quickly point everyone in the direction of a wonderful project that I came across late this evening, which I think will finish your day off nicely. I’m talking about the delicate creations of ceramicist Heather Levine, who recently created these handcrafted light-shades in aid of the interior design found in the Wildwood Restaurant, Portland, Oregon. The Los …
