Essential Forms by Pedro de Passos

One thing I always find remarkable is that many of the individuals we pick-up on seem to have very similar influences. Even in unusual ways, whether it be their outlook on life, cultural references, or the importance of certain creatives throughout their journey. It’s almost as if all these dots connect in strange ways, all channeling towards a similar aesthetic. I’m sure designers pick up on this quite often, there’s so much content on the web …

New Feature with Japanese Designer Oji Masanori

As you may already know, I don’t really like to rehash old articles for the website. I prefer to bring you something new and unique that is more of a documentation of someone’s work, or working processes, instead of a piece that won’t be of any use in a few months time. One designer that I thought would be a fantastic addition to our feature section is Japanese creative Oji Masanori …

Ceramics by Japanese Maker Toru Hatta

Two things that I have no problem finding in terms of inspiration are furniture and pottery. For some reason they’re at the forefront, whether that be a particular phase at the moment I’m not sure (quite possibly), but I’m always keeping my eyes on the ground for other content and avenues to pursue. I suppose as I’m getting quite adept as a potter myself I’m finding some fascinating works across the web. One of my favourites recently, and …

New Interview with Sculptor and Artist Rodger Stevens

Since some of you are regulars to the blog but can’t always check back with the site itself, I decided to write a quick post notifying you all of a new interview/feature that went live a few days back. We got together with American artist and sculptor Rodger Stevens, who we’ve long been admirers of and have featured on the blog a few times before (you may recall his work). I’ve had the pleasure …

Living Quarters Photographed by Mieke Verbijlen

After a little gap between any photography related articles, although every post here does feature an exciting array of imagery, I thought it was about time I highlighted an individual that’s been particularly inspiring for a little while. I’ve had the portfolio bookmarked in my reader and I’m checking back regularly to see if their has been any new series added to the ever growing list on her …

Short Film on Sculptor Richard Serra

You might have noticed the blog going a little quiet over the past few days, I just want to come through and apologise on that front. I hadn’t come across a project that has really gripped or enticed me, and we feel compelled to try and offer something insightful here when we do post. Which is why I’ve waited and thankfully found this short film on sculptor Richard Serra as he graces new ground in his work, erecting his first sculpture in South …

Sara Flynn Exhibition at Erskine, Hall & Coe

I thought we’d return with a little update on Erskine, Hall and Coe today as they run a great deal of exhibitions that are well worth making a trip to see. They introduced me previously to the work of Mexican artist Gustavo Perez, which I highlighted to a few of you here, and today I was pleased to come across an artist working a bit closer to home, Sara Flynn who’s based in Cork, Ireland. Her exhibition at Erskine closes on Thursday so I …

Creative Imagery from Potter Yoshiyuki Shimizu

I love seeing imagery of creatives and artists at work, so when I stumbled across this fantastic looking set featuring Japanese potter Yoshiyuki Shimizu I had to pull it over for all of you to enjoy. Wonderful originality in the photography and I think all these of these do a great job at conveying his work. For example, you can see him above using a wooden kick wheel to make his beautiful pots …

Shiko Pottery Studio, Australia

Today I’ve selected some great photography from a studio’s website based in Brunswick, Australia named Shiko. To be quite honest we’ve not really featured many artists from Australia here in the past, even though there seems to be some fantastic work going on over there, so this post today should give you that little boost to explore other Australian creatives on the web. Shiko is run and owned by Sophie Harle, who throws simple …

Wooden Utensils and Vessels by Hiroyuki Sugawara

I came across these stunning utensils and vessels over the weekend thanks to maker Hiroyuki Sugawara from Japan. All of his woodworkings come out of his studio titled Greenlight in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture, where he works on crafting these pieces by hand. Hiroyuki originally came from a background in product design but decided to set up a small workshop when he retired, I think you …
