Carl Auböck, The Workshop Book by Clemens Kois

I know I’ve been a bit heavy on the Carl Auböck front as of late, it’s so easy to find inspiring stuff relating to the Auböck family, plus when you make objects like they do it’s hard not to showcase them to you all. One of the great things about owning this site is the amount of creatives and individuals I get to connect with, whether it be in person or through the internet. I regularly email Carl Auböck and …

Baking Dutch Oven Bread with Tiger in a Jar

Kinfolk continue their support of the independent creative scene by collaborating with the Tiger in a Jar collective to create a charming short film which highlights the beauty of baking Dutch oven bread. The guilty conscience in me has to admit that I don’t actually bake as much fresh bread as I should, I’m addicted to the smell of it though so this project is a welcome reminder to get into the kitchen and make some of …

Honey Harvest by Kinfolk

Our good friends at Kinfolk release their newest shoot titled “Honey Harvest” featuring some beekeeping. A pretty interesting piece that really connects the animal to our everyday life, I think a lot of the time we forget where our food actually comes from and how it gets to our plate so it’s nice to see this connection. Also this piece brings into perspective friendships and the power of sharing food with our loved ones, even more so …
