Yoko Ozawa Pottery

Some quirky ceramics by Melbourne based potter Yoko Ozawa.

Rough edges here and there all add to the overall aesthetic, superb stuff if you ask me. Take the white salad bowl for example with the swirly detailing inside, also the tea pot which is pretty much stripped down …

Mixed Imagery by Kimberly Wu

My favourite sort of photography doesn’t necessarily have to be about composition or clarity but a lot of the time it’s about the subject in the photograph and the natural lighting. I prefer it when the person taking the picture is inspired by what they’re taking and is very careful about the aesthetics, Kimberly Wu definitely fits this description. She runs two fantastic websites, one more of a blog format and the other showcasing her …

Moving from one process to another, intriguing to say the least. You have to bare with it and take into account the amount of …
