Cy Twombly Sculptures

This weekend I spent much of my time working, luckily enough for me though my job tends to revolve around research and I love taking in different information about creatives and designers. I recently talked about the new additions to my bookshelf in a previous post which included the likes of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Tadao Ando, both contemporary architects. Although we’ve talked a lot about architects and architecture …

Collection of Work by Sculptor David Esterly

If I’m honest I struggled to piece together a set of David Esterly’s creations in the candid style we prefer, I did however manage it with a little digging around so here we are with some wood carvings which are absolutely incredible. I think what we really need to be sharing here is a short film of David crafting these beautiful pieces by hand, as what a talented fellow he is and an obvious master of the art. The artist really has trans …

The Inspirations and Works of Potter Len Castle

Aha! Here we go again, more pottery and ceramics. This time in the form of New Zealand potter Len Castle who received a CBE for Services to Pottery and has also been awarded many merits over his lifetime for his work in the creative arts. Although he sadly passed away at the age of 86 in 2011 his work still lives on and it’s fantastic to see not only his pieces, which are magical and quite unbelievable, but also his insp …

I felt today would be a good time to visit the work of James Blain Blunk or J.B Blunk as he was affectionately known whilst alive, as I’m keen to keep a little craftsmanship flowing through our format. I was casually taking a read through his dedicated webpage this morning and I was lucky enough to stumble across these great film photography shots of Mr Blunk creating. For those of you who haven’t come across …

Admiring the Work of Sculptor Richard Serra

Over the Christmas period I came across the work of Richard Serra through an insightful book that follows his achievements over the past forty years. So I thought we’d mark this new found interest in his creations with a follow up post here on the site as some of his works are really quite astounding. For those that haven’t come across the American artist and sculptor before Richard focuses around a very minimal yet industrial …

Admiring the Work of Barbara Hepworth

After delving into the archives of ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu almost two weeks ago I felt it would be fitting today to admire another creative from the past, this time visiting the work of sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Those of you who are familiar with Barbara’s work will acknowledge we are delving a little further into history with her passing in 1975, however I don’t think her creations are particularly dated, more timeless in …

A conversation with Josh Vogel by YHBHS

I wouldn’t say that we regularly point out interviews on other websites, usually we save this for the twitter account, but last night I got really into this piece by a blog titled You Have Been Here Sometime. I wouldn’t say it’s an interview in a normal format, it’s pretty much a dialogue between two artists/craftsmen, one being the interviewer and the other being Josh Vogel. Now if you don’t remember Josh Vogel has made an appea…

Objects by Keisuke Iwata

I found these amazing pieces by Japanese born Keisuke Iwata on his personal website which showcases lots of the individual items that he’s made over the years. Above and below you can find some of my favourite pieces, not only the pottery itself but also the imagery in which has been shot. So gentle and simple, really refreshing to see photography like this on a dark and misty day that we’re currently experienc …
