One of a Kind Ceramics by Atelier Stella

As you all know I’m a bit of a functionalist at heart, but I’m always intrigued when designers give their work that added touch of personality and character. Take for example these amazing ceramics by Stella Baggott, who makes these pieces under the alias Atelier Stella in London, England. It’s great to see someone local to us producing items like this on a regular basis, even if Stella only makes them when she gets time away from her other creative …

Selection of Imagery from Carlie Armstrong

After highlighting Jennifer Causey and her Brooklyn Makers book the other day I came across another photographer that’s passionate about sharing some American creativity. Tonight I thought I’d give her work a showcase here because I’m a big fan of what she’s trying to do with her own project and felt it deserved a bit more attention. Much like Jennifer, Carlie Armstrong is in awe of the collective artisanal movement going on in her area and …

Empress of the North Animation by Drew Christie

Evening all, if you’d like to join me in watching this little animation by Drew Christie which is packed full of character and atmosphere. If you’re a regular here you’ll know we are big fans of anything handmade, so this sombre animation was just the tonic needed on what has turned out to be quite a depressing day. I know everyone will have read this on the internet over and over again but we both genuinely feel quite …

Illustrations by Leni Kauffman
Art

Keeping things local, I’d like to introduce an English based illustrator named Leni Kauffman who is kind enough to share her lifestyle with the online world on a regular basis. Browsing through Leni’s porfolio I was really impressed with the detailing of her artworks, especially when combined with this wonderful subtle approach to colour. The piece we have above was created in aid of London’s recent tweed run, which …

Illustration from Kathleen Jennings
Art

I came across these great little sketches from Australian artist Kathleen Jennings earlier which provide a really personal introduction to the thought process she undertakes when creating new work. In viewing these it becomes quite evident that Kathleen takes her inspiration from everyday life, people and places that she happens to comes across, then later recreates these elements in her inspiration from …
