Yumiko iihoshi Porcelain

Even though we don’t necessarily work on weekends here I’ll still keep my eyes open for inspiration, beautifully designed objects and information that’s new and exciting in the design world. Sometimes it’s just luck of the draw to what you’ll find but generally I discover something that’s really intriguing or positive, I guess that’s the nature of the web right now, since it’s so big and so vast. Plus, so many creatives are updating their …

Ceramics by Lilith Rockett

I’m not sure how we’ve not posted up Lilith Rockett’s work before, I’ve come across many ceramicists over the years, albeit each one having a slightly different flavour, but I’ve never seen such a complete collection as Lilith’s. She works primarily in porcelain which seems to be a massive attraction for me as a material, I love the translucency, fluidity, and also the soft look of the finished piece. Some people may see it as bland …

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 …

Handmade Ceramics at Inventory Stockroom by Shino Takeda

I’m back again today with another post that follows along the same line as my last, this time I thought I’d put some imagery together thanks to our friends at Inventory who’ve recently released their latest set of items. It’s unusual for me to cover two similar things so closely to one another, but I thought these had a really nice charm about them and the photos are superb as well, which is …

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 at Mr Kitly

So although we don’t tend to write over the weekend I still spend my mornings on the look out for new and inspiring work, sometimes I just stumble across creative things due to general research, other times one subject leads to another or I’m re-visiting a place that we’ve come across before. It’s a thrill uncovering new content and talent that no one else has seen, so this shop that we’re showcasing today named Mr Kitly must …

Film on Danish Potter: Anne Mette Hjortshøj

It’s time to put the kettle on and get a little comfortable in your chair as this project, much like the art of pottery, isn’t for those in a hurry. If you do have spare time on your hands and an avid interest in seeing individuals create one of a kind objects however then you’re in for a real treat, as we visit the work of Dane Anne Mette Hjortshøj and her pottery studio courtesy of the good folks at Goldmark art. The short documentary provides …

Tableware by Sue Paraskeva

Here you can see some beautiful creations by Sue Paraskeva, a potter and artist who’s situated in the Isle of Wight. I originally came across her a couple of months ago on Vimeo but I decided not to bring the video onto the blog because it had a crazy amount of views and I didn’t want to regurgitate the same content that was already across the web. But as time’s passed it made sense to step away from the hype and focus on the tableware that she …

Jean Girel Ceramics

Today I thought I’d bring across a set of works by French ceramic artist Jean Girel, he’s a real talent and definitely deserves to be showcased. This specific set of imagery was picked up from his recent exhibition at Maison Gerard, who always do a fantastic job at photographing the objects that they have on display. Unfortunately I caught this one a tad bit late and the exhibition was only on for a month long period, finishing May 24th. so it’s …

Ceramics and Sculpture by Ian McDonald

It’s not the first time I’ve come across Ian McDonald’s works, he’s always getting involved in interesting exhibitions, one last year titled “One Eight Hundred” was so close to our own name that it’s been stuck in my head for a long time now. So today when I revisited his website it was a nice surprise to see some new photography of an exhibition that took place last year and also to hear he’s selling a few bits in the South Willard store …

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 …

Manos, Pottery Studio by Oscar Liedgren

This post is a case of one project leading to another as we return to talented Swedish filmmaker Oscar Liegren and his latest short film which features Potter Karin Eriksson in her studio. Many of you enjoyed Oscar’s previous piece we shared on Kiki, the Japanese design store in Stockholm, so I decided to keep a close eye on the filmmaker which luckily paid dividends today. It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a pottery based film …
