Wright Auction House, Furniture by Alvar Aalto

Previously I put together a post on Børge Mogensen and his furniture, in-particular the pieces that have been showed at the Wright auction house based in Chicago, Illinois. This article follows the same line today but on a different creative, this time Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. I’ve had a whale of a time over the last few months just drifting back and forward from the Wright website where they beautifully present these master …

Set of Ceramics by Maria Kristofersson

It’s hard to grumble at a little Nordic inspiration to start the week off so I’ve brought across the work of Swedish creative Maria Kristofersson as I really enjoyed browsing over her ceramic collection this weekend. Maria is often noted for her rugged yet quirky creations that hold quite an individual aesthetic. It’s evident that although Maria tends to work in conventional forms crafting bowls, plates and various vessels she does …

Short Film by Yuki Kokubo

I don’t know if anyone else finds this but Friday always seems to be quite a reflective day for me, a chance to look back on the weeks work and reestablish where things are going for the next week ahead. So being Friday I thought I’d bring across a little documentary style film which is quite reflective in it’s nature, as it follows the lives of two Japanese potters who are dealing with life after the terrible natural disasters …

So as we wind down from our busy schedule before the big release of our shop on monday, why not join us in watching a collaborative lamp being made between Xavier Manosa and Mashallah. First up we get a little trans …

Mark recently voiced recognition of this project on the sites dedicated facebook page, however this was before a film of the contraption working was released online. So I’ve brought it into the format for all of us to enjoy …

Imagery of Sculptor James Blain Blunk

I felt today would be a good time to visit the work of James Blain Blunk or J.B Blunk as he was affectionately known whilst alive, as I’m keen to keep a little craftsmanship flowing through our format. I was casually taking a read through his dedicated webpage this morning and I was lucky enough to stumble across these great film photography shots of Mr Blunk creating. For those of you who haven’t come across …

Admiring the Work of Barbara Hepworth

After delving into the archives of ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu almost two weeks ago I felt it would be fitting today to admire another creative from the past, this time visiting the work of sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Those of you who are familiar with Barbara’s work will acknowledge we are delving a little further into history with her passing in 1975, however I don’t think her creations are particularly dated, more timeless in …

Printmaking with Keegan Meegan

We all like seeing prints being made, it’s a real fun creative process and although I’ve seen this type of project a million times over I’m yet to get bored of seeing these industrious presses in full flow. They are just mesmerising contraptions evolved from the basic design that Johannes Gutenberg curated way back in 1440 would you believe. I just love reading about the heritage which they are so rich in, it’s really quite fas …

Creating Things with Wood & Faulk

If there’s one thing that’s more refreshing than coming across individuals that create things for a living then it’s finding individuals that not only create but strive to inspire others to do so aswell. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been enjoying a handful of tutorial based design sites, take The Brick House for example who have a fantastic collection of do-it-yourself projects to get us motivated to create something ourselves …
