Baking Dutch Oven Bread with Tiger in a Jar

Kinfolk continue their support of the independent creative scene by collaborating with the Tiger in a Jar collective to create a charming short film which highlights the beauty of baking Dutch oven bread. The guilty conscience in me has to admit that I don’t actually bake as much fresh bread as I should, I’m addicted to the smell of it though so this project is a welcome reminder to get into the kitchen and make some of …

Honey Harvest by Kinfolk

Our good friends at Kinfolk release their newest shoot titled “Honey Harvest” featuring some beekeeping. A pretty interesting piece that really connects the animal to our everyday life, I think a lot of the time we forget where our food actually comes from and how it gets to our plate so it’s nice to see this connection. Also this piece brings into perspective friendships and the power of sharing food with our loved ones, even more so …

Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

A nice film by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co, a company who looks to sell practical and aesthetically pleasing products for the home and office space. Founded by Brian Faherty, the idea was spawned after he discovered a collection of antique cast iron moulds that had been out of production for over fifty years. He decided to bring back these moulds into production and use the best American materials available today …

The Art Of Time By Martina Chamrad

Working on the internet in the way that we do from time to time you can reach the point where you get a little frustrated scrolling through reams and reams of uninspiring projects. We like to keep the site pretty niche and we know what we like so in many respects we can’t really complain. It’s just a bit of a waiting game until something new and relevant comes our way. So when something does crop up it’s all the more sat …

ColsenKeane Leather Goods

I found this inspiring video on leather goods company ColsenKeane, definitely worth viewing on this bright but wet Friday morning here in England. Founder Scott Hofert takes us into his workshop and his daily job, showing us what it’s like to be in their workshop cutting the leather and stitching together all these beautiful leather made goods. Scott has spent the last 25 years travelling to over 40 different countries and this inspi …

Dieter Rams at SFMOMA

This isn’t the first time that we’ve written about Dieter Rams and his work and it probably won’t be the last either. I came across this short video piece directed by Nathan Cozzolino and edited/scored by Andrew Birchett for Dwell magazine. Dwell is becoming a place that I check on a regular basis for inspiration, possibly more so since since I’ve become interested in interior design and architecture. It all seems to interrelate …

Created in aid of Movember, this year the Urchin Associates have visited various creative types with their film crew for a diverse range of storytelling experiences. In this episode we get to hear the story of a passionate …

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 …

Movember 2011 Craft and Pride Series

So as you know, we’ve finally breached over into the month of November, which also doubles as my birthday, I swear time just moves on so quickly. I can never keep track of it. You may of heard about this ‘Movember’ campaign and have wondered what it’s all about, well it’s basically a global moustache growing charity event which is held during November of each year and raises funds and awareness for men’s …

Glass Blowing Short Film from Todd Tankersley

Todd Tankersley introduces us to the art of glass blowing this morning in this short piece featuring his good friend Esteban who is practicing the traditional process. Todd works as a commercial photographer by day, so this short film is a little outside of what he’s usually recognised for professionally. I felt it was a good moment to diversify on the craftsmanship front …

Eames: The Architect and The Painter

This short trailer, which can be watched below, is just the beginning of what’s going to be a very successful film on American designers Charles and Ray Eames. The piece is titled ‘Eames: The Architect and The Painter’ which provides us with a candid view of the inner lives of the two great artists as they helped share their innovation with the world. It’s probably the nearest that we’ve ever got to behind the scenes and looks …

Gilberto Paim & Elizabeth Fonseca, Ceramists

This morning I came across this fantastic but obscure film by Nina Paim documenting Ceramists Gilberto Paim & Elizabeth Fonseca. Now I don’t mean documentation in a verbal way, more of a silent but artistic way, this piece is full of shots of the couple making pottery in their studio/house. Moving from one process to another, intriguing to say the least. You have to bare with it and take into account the amount of …
