Further Photography from Where They Create by Paul Barbera

This doesn’t happen very often but I was completely blown away this morning by the creative energy found within the webpage of photographer Paul Babera. He’s undertaken a ridiculously ambitious project where he’s travelled the globe searching high and low for the most innovative designers, makers, artist illustrators, architects and more. Basically if creativity is their passion Paul …

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 …

Collection of Ceramics by Olen Hsu

After a good couple of hours learning on the wheel myself last night I’ve got a lot of admiration for todays entry into our daily content, American creative Olen Hsu who’s somewhat of a master of the art. His works embody a subtle quietness of form which are given a gentle measure of personality in his polished glazes, I think these add real character. He aims to recreate textures such as shell, bone, water or skin with a suggestion …

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 …

Short Film on Eames Chair Creation

I’m not going to lie, today has been somewhat of a frustrating uphill battle in the content department, we’ve found ourselves stockpiled with certain subjects and thin on the ground with others. Thankfully though I came across this great image of Ray Eames creating a selection of chairs that reminded me of a short film I watched not too long ago featuring a series of their seating being documented during the make. It was perfect …

Ceramic Sculptures by Eva Hild

Over the last couple of months sculpture seems to have really got a hold on me, I’ve been constantly floating around to see what I can find online, and have been somewhat taken by the idea that an object can challenge conventional ways of thinking just through an abstract form. Which was why I was delighted to stumble upon the portfolio of Eva Hild yesterday as her ceramic sculptures feel like ongoing experiments that the artist just keeps …

Ceramics by Virginie Besengez

I thought we’d head to France today in search of a little creative inspiration, visiting the work of Virginie Besengez, a ceramic artist based in the idyllic setting that is Wambrechies, which can be found on the map just north of Lille. As an artist Virginie has been known to dabble in both porcelain and stoneware, with her clean and contemporary white vessels providing a nice contrast to those of a more rustic and primitive nature. This is perh …

Imagery from Alison Berger Glassworks

I thought I’d bring a little craft into the fold today as we’ve both been pursuing our own creative projects recently and I was hugely inspired by the work of Alison Berger and the skill she has developed in making handblown glass. Based in Los Angles, Alison’s professional background was initially in architecture having worked for Bausman-Gill associates and the Frank O. Gehry studio for a number of years before eventually focusing on …

Freunde von Freunden interview Ole Martin Hansen

With all eyes on London as the Olympic games progress it looks like Freunde von Freunden thought it was the perfect moment to showcase some creative talent from the English capital, so today we visit the work of a young Norwegian who runs his own smokehouse in Stoke Newington. Staying true to four generations of the Hansen and Lydersen family craft, Ole Hansen has taken …

Collection of work from Jean Arp

I seem to be caught in somewhat of a nostalgic phase at the moment, focusing on creatives from the past that I admire, opposed to those that are still working away at their craft/design. I guess it’s easier to appreciate somebody’s creativity and flare when their life’s work is over and you can sit back and admire what they left behind to inspire others as a whole body of work. Today I’d like to turn your attention if I can to French sculptor, painter and …

Handmade Tools by John Neeman

I’ve been making a few flying visits around the personal pages of creatives we’ve highlighted in the past today, with craftsman John Neeman by far impressing me the most. A few of you may remember we followed his filmed series in the past “a birth of a tool” which documented one of his remarkable axes being put together. Today I noticed he’d updated his gallery section of his gallery section of his website to include a few …

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 …
