Glass Sculpture by Stephen Procter

Stephen Procter is a bit of a legend when it comes to working with glass, he initially began by researching English glass engraving, this inspired him to learn and explore the craft in more detail. During the late 60’s and early 70’s, in his studio near Ashburton in Devon, UK, Stephen focused entirely on engraving glass goblets in which he achieved a high standard of craftsmanship. In the late 70’s, as with any creative that reaches a …

Architectonic Sculpture by Brian Corr

Sometimes I spend weekend mornings, when it’s quiet around here, looking for creative films and other design content that might be inspiring, not necessarily for the blog but just to keep my mind refreshed and in check. For some reason this week I stumbled in to three or four different glass artists, and each one produces some fantastic works. Obviously, I couldn’t showcase them all so I’ll have to separate them out and present them separate …

Tetra by Yohei Kuwano and Koji Takahashi

Today I thought I’d pick out a slightly different set of objects to talk about, it seems like a nice switch away from what we usually talk about, architecture, craft, furniture etc. Saying that, these do sort of come under the architectural ‘umbrella’ in some ways. I love the dimensions of these objects and the fact that they’re functional, they also look great too! Why I say they could be placed in the architectural category is because of their brutal …

CALDER | PROUVÉ at Galerie Patrick Seguin

The good folks at Patrick Seguin recently released some imagery from their latest exhibition that started on Saturday titled ‘CALDER | PROUVÉ’, which will run until November 2nd, 2013. Sculptors haven’t really featured here that often, but when I do pick one out they always bring something unique and different to the table. One artist that has been on the blog in the past is Alexander Calder, and my office is littered with books revolving around the …

Ceramic Works by Asche Yamamoto of Studio atelier-H

Last week I was trying to find some content relating to the sculpture/ceramic field, as I’d been looking at the works of Georges Jouve, who I don’t believe we’ve covered here before. If you’re not familiar with Mr Jouve you should take a short trip to this MONDOBLOGO article that showcases a brilliant selection of imagery to give you a better idea. Basically, Georges Jouve is known as being …

New Interview with Sculptor and Artist Rodger Stevens

Since some of you are regulars to the blog but can’t always check back with the site itself, I decided to write a quick post notifying you all of a new interview/feature that went live a few days back. We got together with American artist and sculptor Rodger Stevens, who we’ve long been admirers of and have featured on the blog a few times before (you may recall his work). I’ve had the pleasure …

Sculptural Forms by Belinda Winkler

It’s been a year since I started to explore ceramics and pottery in greater detail, not necessarily researching it, that started a long long time ago, but actual hands on commitment to the craft. So I feel like I have a small amount of physical knowledge, and I am now able to make forms on the wheel with ‘relative’ ease. I have even produced some pieces that currently have pride of place in my own office at the moment. Although I say I can make …

Breathing Earth – Susumu Shingu’s Dream by Thomas Riedelsheimer

Coming across sculptors doesn’t happen as frequently as one might think, which is weird since I’m always on the lookout for them. So, on a whim I decided to revisit an artist that I’ve researched before but didn’t have much luck stringing a post together at the time, the path went a bit stale in terms of imagery and/or a project that would be sufficient to bring him to light. That’s not saying …

Domo de Argila by Artist Andy Goldsworthy

This short film on artist Andy Goldsworthy seriously caught my attention yesterday, possibly because it brings back memories of ‘Rivers and Tides’, a documentary portrait of Andy Goldsworthy by Thomas Riedelsheimer made over ten years ago. You should 100% watch the trailer to the film on youtube if you get a chance, I was mesmerised by his patience and how he pushes his work right to the edge, often to the point of collapse. If you …

Series of Modernist Sculptures

It’s not often I put together this type of post featuring a selection of creatives in one go, but I thought I’d break my own mould today after searching around a number of fantastic online archives. Sharing the video of modernist architect Josep Lluis yesterday relit my own interest in the era and I felt compelled to delve a little deeper and highlight any works that caught my eye today. I’m not by any means saying these particular …

Wood in Progress by Ernst Gamperl

Ernst Gamperl is a bit of a legend in the craft circles, I’m surprised we haven’t talked about him before because his wooden forms are spectacular to say the least. It seems like a good time to visit his works and showcase some exciting shapes that might get you all inspired, it certainly had me intrigued. I personally felt bringing over photos of his work in a singular fashion could of been one dimensional, so I put together a selection from …

Series of Sculptures by Pamela Sunday

At the turn of the year I thought I’d come through with a selection of sculptures to compliment our recent interview with American artist Patrick Dougherty. I’ve strayed away from wood however and put together a series of imagery from another American creative, the lady in question being Pamela Sunday who works in the medium of clay. Based in the Italian-American neighbourhood of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Pamela shares her …
