Ceramics by Clam Lab Studio

Ceramics and pottery haven’t featured too heavily this week, which is a bit of a surprise, I feel a little like I’m getting withdrawal symptoms at the moment so I’ve been on the search for a series this morning to fill the void. 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 …

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 …

Dustin Cohen Photographs Watchmaker David Sokosh

I had planned to bring across the latest development in Dustin Cohen’s Made in Brooklyn film series, but since this has already broke elsewhere I thought we’d focus in on a little of his photography instead. Many of you may remember the first episode which followed violin maker Sam Zygmuntowicz, a project that I thought Dustin was going to find hard to better. He has however …

Kinfolk Dinner – Brooklyn, New York Short Film

I really love what Kinfolk do and the way they go about things which is why I almost feel obliged to share their work when they create things. I guess I feel by doing so not only am I believing in what they put out there but also everyone that is involved in each project too, because they really seem to thrive off of collaboration which is refreshing and inspiring to see. I’ve always admired their willingness to give new individuals an …

We love seeing masters at work here, In terms of inspiration it’s just incredible to see the passion of someone who’s been doing what they love for year upon year.

There’s something quite special about a Violin, I …

Elephant Ceramics, Brooklyn, NY Photographed by Jennifer Causey

I found this gem of a series today which is part of The Makers Project by Jennifer Causey, a photographer that’s been on my watch list for quite sometime now. We actually wrote a post on the project a while back but I thought this particular one was definitely worth pointing out as we visit the studio of ceramicist Michele Michael of Elephant Ceramics. Michele designs and …

Furniture and More from Sit and Read

Sit and Read has been a place to check on the regular for many people, becoming extremely popular amongst the furniture savvy in the last few years. If you don’t know already, this company was founded by Kyle Garner who when working in New York in 2007 as a production designer couldn’t find space to store all of the props and furnitures for his sets. So he decided to start selling them to clear out space and as word …

THE SOURCE by E. Conor Hagen for Mast Brothers Chocolate

I’m sure you’re probably all sick of chocolate by now after Christmas and New Year? I’ve still got lots left that I don’t really want to consume, but it’s definitely nowhere near as nice as this chocolate made by the Mast Brothers. I don’t know how I missed this, since it’s over two months old, but it’s such an enjoyable video and was a perfect start to my early Friday morning …

Khoi Vinh, On the Grid

I’ve been studying the grid for quite a while now, at first I thought it was just relative to the web design field but as time’s gone by I’ve found it’s taken on a role not only in my design self but also in my lifestyle choices. Whether it be art, ceramics, film, or even clothing, I’m intrigued to see the form of order, logic and law within an item, product, space or concept. This is most important to me and has really opened up my eyes …
