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 …

Short Film Introducing Beam & Anchor

As we pass through a period of good will and spirit, I wanted to showcase a short film I came across this morning that shares the story of a company that’s based around this very same community feel. Once again we are heading over to the creative hub that is Portland, Oregan as Matt Pierce introduces us to Beam and Anchor, the brain child of furniture reclaimer Robert Rahm who has setup a creative studio harbouring various …

Handmade Lights by Lam Quang and Kestrel Gates

I think an overriding sense of what we are striving to create here is a space where alternate ideas, concepts and ultimately products in our online shop can be shared and supported. So with this in mind, I became fond of the project of Lam Quang and Kestrel Gates this morning who run their own little independent venture dedicated to creating handmade lights and lamps for around the …

Photo Series from In The Make

Last time around we highlighted their studio visit to sculptor Mari Andrew, which if you didn’t catch a glimpse of was like a cave of all things organic and eye pleasing, I’d recommend checking back if I was you. Today I thought I’d focus more on a mixture of individual …

Chance would have it that I stumbled upon the talents of Clair Catillaz’s earlier who runs her own studio in northern Brooklyn within the Greenpoint area, and I was really taken with her collection of white stoneware and porcelain …

Furniture Designer: Taylor Donsker

Believe me when I say we’ve seen a lot of craftsmen, creatives, designers and makers over the years and heard many, many stories. Some of these are regularly repeated and you very quickly develop a nose for who is regurgitating the same message and those with genuine drive and passion to create something completely unique. The character we came across this morning in that context falls into the latter bracket, I heard his …

A View of Architectural Pottery, U.S.A

I thought we’d take a visit to the collection of Architectural Pottery today who’ve been handcrafting these vessels in America since the 1950’s. I was browsing across their webpage this morning and enjoyed their selection so much I just couldn’t help but share my findings. They seem to lean towards modernism in their approach, with the site littered with homes under this influence, both new and old, so I guess you could say their prod …
