New Feature: Interview with Mira Nakashima

We are excited to return with out interview format today, as it’s a section of the platform we’ve missed being involved with given the fact we get the opportunity to connect with so many aspirational individuals. It’s had to take a bit of backseat if we’re honest as we’ve looked to move the site forward on another evolution. I promise this break has been more than worthwhile however as it’s freed up time for Mark to slave away on …

Flow Gallery – The Spirit Of Things

When we aren’t working or creating it’s great to get ourselves out the office and take some influence from others through the medium of gallery exhibitions. The Flow gallery in Notting Hill, London which is owned by Yvonna Demczynska has been running a fantastic showcase recently titled the spirt of things that explores the crosscurrents between Japanese and Finnish crafts. Unfortunately this ends tomorrow so it’s not like …

Art Quest London Interview Billy Lloyd

One subject we don’t often touch upon here is business, as to be honest with you we aren’t particularly motivated by the idea of making lots of money. I’m sure this may seem strange to many but we can honestly say that our platform is founded upon our passion for sharing creativity alone. What really drives us forward is the idea of a creative community, supporting other independents so they can fulfil what they consider to be their …

An Interview with Toshiko Takaezu by D.B.Long

Now I know this film is slightly old but I thought it would be a great piece for all of you watch today, I haven’t seen it before and the views seem surprisingly low so I’m guessing others haven’t either. It’s a short interview produced by D.B.Long with ceramic artist Toshiko Takaezu, someone who Daniel’s discussed here before, so you may have seen her work knocking around in the archives …

Interview with American Photographer Leslie Williamson

As the office begins to become over run with books, Leslie Williamson’s Handcrafted Modern has become a firm favourite amongst our ranks. So it’s little surprise that the photographer come author made it to the top of our interview hit list, and fortunately we were able to find a gap in her schedule to put one together. With news of the second installment of the book being compiled it …

Further Imagery from Freunde von Freunden

I’ve really been craving a great set of photography recently so I thought it was about time I dropped in on the Freunde von Freunden website as they never disappoint on this score. True to form their archive has been replenished with lots of mind-blowing shots, they seem to have ventured out geographically too which is fantastic to see, collaborating with so many great creatives in the process. Mr Brian W Ferry mentioned back in …

Set of Imagery from Industry of One

I’ve really enjoyed the Industry of One webpage over recent months so as a nod of appreciation to the work that Adam Patrick and Rachel Brown undertake I thought I’d bring across a small set of photography which features a few familiar faces. Although their initial context was to accompany the dedicated interview of these individuals, I felt these worked really well together in a set especially from a men’s style point of view. A few of you may …

Interview with New York Based Photographer Brian W. Ferry

Why it’s taken us so long to include Brian W Ferry into our interview lineup is a little beyond us, he is now however so if you haven’t yet read our recent conversation it’s quite an honest account from the New York based photographer. On a personal note it was really interesting to receive Brian’s responses back as we learned a little more about the man behind the …

Superfolk Mug Feature by Makers & Brothers

Were revisiting a pottery studio again, this time thanks to a feature that the Makers and Brothers website put together. I’ve only recently come across their cracking project but it’s a retail venture developed by two brothers called Jonathan and Mark Legge. Their idea is to showcase and sell simple things that are handmade and that are designed and crafted objects of integrity. Based in Ireland, I think they’re doing a cracking …

Short Film on Architect Robert Madison

I stumbled across the story of gentleman and architect Robert Madison a little while ago now and I’ve been waiting for a rainy day to bring it into our archive for us all to consume and learn from. Today is that day so I guess I shall begin by explaining that Robert is an influential Mentor, Patron of Arts and Pioneering Architect who was presented with the Cleveland Arts Prize as a Special Citation for Distinguished Service …

A conversation with Josh Vogel by YHBHS

I wouldn’t say that we regularly point out interviews on other websites, usually we save this for the twitter account, but last night I got really into this piece by a blog titled You Have Been Here Sometime. I wouldn’t say it’s an interview in a normal format, it’s pretty much a dialogue between two artists/craftsmen, one being the interviewer and the other being Josh Vogel. Now if you don’t remember Josh Vogel has made an appea…

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 …
