Mari Andrews Photographed by In The Make

We might of created a silly amount of content of our own over the years but we’re ultimately big consumers and admirers of others work too. 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 …

Ceramic Objects by Tara Shackell

Today I’m going to highlight some incredible ceramic work by Tara Shackwell, a ceramic artist living and working in Melbourne. I’ve come across her work several times before and I thought it was about time I showcased it on the site, it’s one of those things where it seems like fate. Tara mainly makes functional tableware which is quite appealing in itself, I like how pottery can bring this out in people, you get to sit and contemplate how you …

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 …

Design Auction, Phillips de Pury

It’s really great when you come across a selection of objects that have been designed by some great individuals, not only that but they’ve been taken professionally by a proper photographer in a nice setting. You’ll be surprised how frustrating it can be when the images are too small or of bad quality to showcase, in my opinion a lot of these objects need to be documented so the younger generation of designers can learn from them. Naturally the …

Stools, Sculpture and Objects by Alma Allen

Alma’s been a massive inspiration for both of us here recently, somehow he’s not featured on the site but today I’ve finally got round to putting together some nice imagery of his work and hopefully this small article will sum up what’s behind his pieces and how he creates these fantastic sculptures. Alma was born in 1970 in Herber City, Utah where he began carving at an early age, he was particularly inspired after …

Tortoise Life, A Look Inside

Every so often I come across shops that resonate with me and seem to be on the same wavelength as us who work here, usually these stores sell totally abstract functional products or items that I’ve never seen before. It’s a pleasure to view objects like these seen here and it peaks my interest in design again, captures something my mind that makes me analyse how a human would use these and what sort of environment they …

Ornaments by Nobuho Miya, Kamasada Ironware

I’m not usually one to bring across a small selection of items, I prefer putting together a post that’s more substantial with captions and all the relevant information. Today I guess is an exception, these ornaments by Kamasada Ironware really grabbed by attention from Japan and I couldn’t let them pass, they’re wonderfully executed and are made by a very well known …

Ceramics by Louisa Taylor

I thought I’d bring some ceramics into the fold today as I’ve been admiring the work of English designer Louisa Taylor and her dainty porcelain creations. I think the finest compliment I can pay Louisa is that her works remind me an awful lot of the understated beauty found within Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’s works who is somewhat of a master of the art in my eyes. I really loved Louisa’s subtle approach to colour in these pieces her glazes …

Furniture, Objects and Imagery from Gallery Utopie

Here’s some fantastic imagery that I picked up thanks to Gallery Utopie (or Utopia in English) who sells and showcases different art/design pieces, the chairs in-particular seem to be quite a focal point. What I like about these guys is that they’ve got an individual taste and it definitely sets their gallery/shop apart from anyone else’s, plus a lot of these objects I’ve never even seen before …

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

We’ve consciously tried to take a step back from the platform over the past few days and have really wanted to staple down the direction that we want to take in order to reach our end goal. Putting together the blog and shop has been an incredible journey for both of us creatively and the difficulty we’re sometimes faced with is keeping the fluidity of our message between the two entities. It’s just a case of reaffirming what we have in our heads so it …

Film on Danish Potter: Anne Mette Hjortshøj

It’s time to put the kettle on and get a little comfortable in your chair as this project, much like the art of pottery, isn’t for those in a hurry. If you do have spare time on your hands and an avid interest in seeing individuals create one of a kind objects however then you’re in for a real treat, as we visit the work of Dane Anne Mette Hjortshøj and her pottery studio courtesy of the good folks at Goldmark art. The short documentary provides …

Jean Girel Ceramics

Today I thought I’d bring across a set of works by French ceramic artist Jean Girel, he’s a real talent and definitely deserves to be showcased. This specific set of imagery was picked up from his recent exhibition at Maison Gerard, who always do a fantastic job at photographing the objects that they have on display. Unfortunately I caught this one a tad bit late and the exhibition was only on for a month long period, finishing May 24th. so it’s …
