Pure White Vessels by Takashi Sogo

Right, this is it. I promise today will be the final time this week that I showcase my favourite Japanese ceramic artists, to be fair it’s quite easy to pick them out because there are so many good ones in that area of the world. As my final post I decided to pull out a specific series from one of my favourites at the moment named Takashi Sogo, his works have been inspiring me for a little while and I’ve saved some in a scrapbook for inspiration …

Yoshiyuki Kato’s Woodworks

It’s not always always an easy job finding new and interesting creatives to talk about, a lot of the time you stumble across the same individuals that are doing great things. One place I’ve always been fascinated by is Japan and Japanese culture, mainly their way of life and also their simplicity in design. You could possibly match it up to the Scandinavian aesthetic in some ways but the history revolving around a lot of their crafts is …

Ceramic Objects by Tara Shackell

Today I’m going to highlight some incredible ceramic work by Tara Shackwell, a ceramic artist living and working in Melbourne. I’ve come across her work several times before and I thought it was about time I showcased it on the site, it’s one of those things where it seems like fate. Tara mainly makes functional tableware which is quite appealing in itself, I like how pottery can bring this out in people, you get to sit and contemplate how you …

Atmosphere & Philosophy, When Objects Work

Today I thought you might appreciate this brilliant selection of imagery from the When Objects Work website. This company was founded by Beatrice de Lafontaine in 2001 after a career in the bespoke interior decoration business. The Belgian company produces and distributes exclusive objects designed by leading designers and architects, such as Shigeru Ban and John Pawson, whose work has a minimal and simple aesthetic. In fact I’ve …

Inside the Billy Lloyd Ceramics Studio

Some of you may have seen that we’re going to be changing quite a few things here on the site over the next coming weeks. It’s fun seeing the development of the site that I started when I was a youngster, even to this day I still can’t believe the changes that have been made and it’s satisfying to know that we’re narrowing down the subject quite dramatically. I feel clarity coming on. This new website that I’m working on should hopefully …

Akiko’s Pottery

Finding beautiful objects isn’t always an easy task, usually the best stuff is hiding away somewhere unusual, but I have to admit it’s nice when things just seem to fall into your lap. Luckily last night I came across this fantastic web store named Totokaelo, they’re actually a shop that I’ve seen and heard about before but the interesting part is the new opening of a dedicated section on their site called “Art-Object” which sells exclusively art …

Ceramics by Job Heykamp

I was really taken aback this morning by the work of Dutch ceramist Job Heykamp and his beautiful rustic style that makes his creations look fresh from a archaeological find. He’s obviously influenced massively by the ceramic work of ages gone by and this shows through the worked surface and colouration of his pieces which are unlike anything I’ve come across before. These designs have character in abundance and have been …

Ceramics and Objects by Sfera

A blog worth visiting is that of Iain Claridge, a small independent design studio based in Bristol, England. They’re regularly showcasing some inspiring imagery and great design related works, so today I decided to put together something that I spotted on their blog a few days back, the works of Sfera. Although Iain Claridge captured some images they didn’t really delve into the company as such so I thought it would be nice to do …
