Bottled History by Smith Journal

Bottled History by Smith Journal

A few days ago Smith Journal released a new video on their website and I couldn’t pass up the chance to showcase it here, there’s some fantastic up-close imagery and you get a sense of the making process. Plus, it only seemed natural after we showcased their last video on Rohan Anderson’s Smokehouse, both are well thought out and nicely directed. They’re also on totally different subjects, which is nice to see as you often find the same …

Making the Joseph Walsh Enignum Table by Pau Camarasa

Making the Joseph Walsh Enignum Table by Pau Camarasa

A truly breathtaking video by Spanish filmmaker Pau Camarasa, one that I’ve not come across before but has been around for over a year. Not totally sure how I missed it when searching through Vimeo. Although, I have come across the creative featured named Joseph Walsh, in fact we highlighted him on the blog in 2011 and I recall his work quite vividly. This specific piece was filmed …

Profile on Dutch Furniture Company Royal Ahrend and Designer Friso Kramer

It didn’t take long for me to step back in to my architectural ways, I feel like it’s been a bit heavy on the subject lately and that I haven’t given anything else a chance to soak through. To be honest, it could be down to a couple of books that came in to the shop last week relating to a few certain architects, I had a cheeky look and each one made me go on to discover more. As you …

Ceramic Houses by Rowena Brown

Ceramic Houses by Rowena Brown

A fantastic short film by Ian Skelly on London based ceramic artist Rowena Brown, who’s a very talented maker indeed. I’ve known about Rowena’s works for a long time but it’s through fantastic videos like this that we get the chance to see the real process behind the objects. In my opinion, when you know the face of the person who’s producing, the reasons why they’re doing it, and also the different stages that the item goes …

Japanese Craftsman and Making Processes by Adam Fulford

Japanese Craftsman and Making Processes by Adam Fulford

Last night I was supposed to be getting on with some work but I ended up spending half of it watching through these incredible videos placed up by Adam Fulford. I previously sat through one on the lacquer process a few months back but he’s uploaded a lot more and they’re ever so inspiring, I was in awe watching all the craftsmen create in silence, Adam seems to be living a dream of …

Bob Robinson: Luthier by Troscan Design

Bob Robinson: Luthier by Troscan Design

I’ve been keeping a close eye out for work by Troscan Design, and late last night they released this brilliant film on founder and accomplished furniture designer Bob Robinson. Originally my goal was to show my appreciation for the furniture and the general forms that they create at Troscan Design, but it turns out Bob also has a passion for making string instruments and creates both classic and flamenco guitars. The video itself offers a …
