Saltscapes by Motoi Yamamoto

We’ve come across many weird and wonderful projects over the years, searching for content each and every day and I hasten to add we’ve seen our fair share of disturbing, lots of remarkable, and the occasional mind boggling project on our internet travels. Coming across a completely new idea or project however doesn’t transpire every day, so when we find short films like this, one that explores the work of artist Motoi Yamamoto and his …

Wire Works by Masao Seki

I love wire sculptures and wire work in general, it’s quite a fascinating subject in my opinion as it’s out of the general scope of what artists usually produce. People like Alexander Calder have originated in this from and have then expanded out into other avenues such as mobile work, or larger sculptures. So it’s basically experimentation and creativity at its purest. As you can imagine since it’s quite a low key thing to do, seeing high …

Photo Series from In The Make

We’re are naturally always on the hunt for makers, and In The Make have them stockpiled, so once again I’ve returned to their door this morning to raid a little photography. 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 …

Short Film on Brooklyn Glass

I’m afraid there’s somewhat of an emphasis on the “short” element of this film today but it’s a project that resonated with me somewhat earlier so I felt it was worthwhile showcasing despite the fact. I’d like it to be a little longer and I’m sure after watching you will too, but it is what it is, and even though this is concise it’s still an insightful project that the Tumblr team have put together. Here we discover the workshop of Brooklyn Glass as a means of …

Shop Imagery by H Works in Japan

My latest explorations revolve around a trio of books that I purchased delving into the art of the tea ceremony in Japan and the concept of life over there in general. One particular book that has gripped me over the past few days was written by Junichiro Tanizaki titled ‘in praise of shadows’, it’s actually quite a short publication but I was entranced all the way through as he mentioned architecture, food, lacquerware and an array …

Mobiles by Xavier Veilhan

I’ve discovered that it’s actually posible for me to create an interesting array of mobiles myself, in fact I finished the first one this week for my office and I think it looks fantastic. Great to see when the light shines in from the front window and the various levels create shadows of all different shapes and sizes, you should definitely try to build one yourself if you get some time. I used some simple wooden beads, light metal rods painted …

Short Film on Vyrobeno lesem Collective

When you sit and consider for a moment how many objects, foods and materials around us are synthetic it makes me feel a little uneasy, I don’t agree that price of something is where its real value lies. As time passes I feel myself moving more and more towards items with organic origins, I like to be able to sit comfortably knowing the background of the items that I spend my hard earned currency on. I’m sure if you’re anything like me it’s a real joy …

Ceramics by Naotsugu Yoshida

Looking back over the past few weeks we’ve been really spoilt in terms of creative talent, it brings me great joy uncovering all these individuals and hopefully I’ll be shining a bit of light on them in terms of exposure. Today we’re going to explore the work of Naotsugu Yoshida, a potter who lives at the foothills of Mt.Fuji, he’s a very talented individual who makes some beautiful pots of all shapes and sizes. Before we get into the …

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 …

Ceramics by Christian Escajadillo

I’m not sure we’ve covered an individual from Peru before but that’s one of reasons I love using the platform we have, each day is a new lesson based upon the research of so many diverse, inspiring individuals. Christian Escajadillo is a ceramist I’d not crossed paths with before but his selection of stoneware and ceramic creations that are rather reminiscent of the early playful Bauhaus era really struck a chord with me, you don’t often see …

Richard Baker, Portraits of Modernist Furniture

I was blown away this week by Richard Baker’s fantastic paintings of modernist furniture, it was a no brainer to showcase them here for all to see. I think this is a classic example of where two disciplines that I’m really fond of come to meet and work really well together, on one hand it’s superb to see this quality of painting and on the other I’m mesmerised by the forms and shapes of the furniture within. Richard uses oil paints on can …
