Series of Sculptures by Antony Gormley

I’d like to start my content for the week with the fantastic work of English sculptor Antony Gormley who has been working in the field now for almost 40 years. Browsing over his personal website you can just see the dedication he has for his craft, with such an expansive collection of sculptures I was really spoilt for choice. As you can see in the imagery I’ve brought across below Antony is quite consumed with the idea of recreating the human …

Short Film on Sculptor Paula Winokur

We are consciously trying not to let ceramics and pottery take over, with an abundance of this type of content floating around the web currently it’s a very precise balancing act to maintain. Something that doesn’t come along every day however is an insightful short film that investigates the style and background of a ceramic artist, so I’m including this today as it may have been here there and everywhere come tomorrow. This features a …

Wall Reliefs and Figures by Joy Brown

I was pretty blown away by these wall reliefs and figures that I found this morning, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the pottery studio and it’s become more and more apparent how hard it is to create sculptures out of clay. Although the material itself is quite durable, with it being easy to add and subtract quantity, the sculpting process can be quite long and tedious. Firing the pieces can also be a tricky one, to get this right each time …

Circular Ceramic Sculptures by Matthew Chambers

Pottery and ceramics is a frequent subject at the moment on the blog, for some unknown reason we both seem to be bumping into a lot of great stuff in this department. Today I came across the work of Matthew Chambers, although I have to warn you before we start, or as you’ve probably noticed already, this stuff is extremely different to your usual ceramic work and could be placed more in …

Wire Sculptures by Rodger Stevens

It’s great when you come across artists and creatives who’re doing something completely different to the trends that are already out there, I’m always intrigued by these new ways of thinking. Over the past year I’m positive that I’ve become more obsessed with form on the whole and the shape of objects, designers like Harry Bertoia are particularly inspiring who’ve dabbled in mixed media. Actually, I think it really adds to the …

Foundation Ernst Scheidegger Archive, The Masters at Work

I love seeing photography of creatives at work, so when I came across this imagery on the Ernst Scheidegger Archive website I couldn’t hold back, I had to share it with you all. I’ve been pretty proud with the sources that I’ve pulled over to the site this week, this one’s no different to be honest and features some of my favourite creatives, most prominently Le Corbusier, who was discussed …

Constantin Brancusi, Artist and Sculptor

Wow, this is why I love writing on this website, it’s an amazing tool for us to research individuals that we admire and that fascinate us. Today I’ve taken the jump and have decided to talk about an amazing artist that goes by the name of Constantin Brancusi. I was led to his work by the one and only Isamu Noguchi who was an assistant to Constantin in Paris, Constantin taught him how to carve stone and wood, just by looking at Isamu’s works you …

Ceramic Sculptures by Eva Hild

Over the last couple of months sculpture seems to have really got a hold on me, I’ve been constantly floating around to see what I can find online, and have been somewhat taken by the idea that an object can challenge conventional ways of thinking just through an abstract form. Which was why I was delighted to stumble upon the portfolio of Eva Hild yesterday as her ceramic sculptures feel like ongoing experiments that the artist just keeps …

Murata Yoshihiko, Japanese Lacquer Artist

Wow. Incredible work by Japanese Artist Murata Yoshihiko who works with lacquer, this isn’t a process that I’m really familiar with but I decided to root around a bit to find some information on this art. From what I found out it seems like Murata uses a maple wood to create these fantastic sculptures. After the form is carved and made smooth he applies more than 20 coats of lacquer, each coat is polished, meaning it can take seve …

Collection of work by Tapio Wirkkala

After visiting the studio of Mari Andrews in yesterday’s post I’ve kept my nose to the ground in the search for another super creative individual and thankfully I stumbled upon the website of Finish designer Tapio Wirkkala. Now Tapio is unfortunately no longer gracing this earth since his passing in the middle of the eighties, however he has left behind him an expansive array of designs that have in some cases come to typify what …

So this morning I’d like to highlight to you all one of my favourite spots to get inspired by called ‘In the Make’ which showcases various creatives in their studios/homes alongside a concise yet captivating interview. They recently got together with Maria Andrews, a sculptor and artist I’d not come acro …

An Interview with Toshiko Takaezu by D.B.Long

Now I know this film is slightly old but I thought it would be a great piece for all of you watch today, I haven’t seen it before and the views seem surprisingly low so I’m guessing others haven’t either. It’s a short interview produced by D.B.Long with ceramic artist Toshiko Takaezu, someone who Daniel’s discussed here before, so you may have seen her work knocking around in the archives …
