Short Film on Archer by Dylan Ryan Byrne

We love the art of craftsmanship here which of course comes in various different shapes and sizes. I know many of you have enjoyed the ceramics and furniture we’ve shared in the past but today I thought we’d showcase something a little different in the form of an archer/traditional bow maker. Filmmaker Dylan Ryan Byrne has taken some time away from his commercial work to produce this account of Harry who we can see …

Short Film on Sean Woolsey

I felt like sticking with a little more craft today after sharing Sebastian Cox’s work yesterday, so I pencilled in this great short film which explores the talents of craftsman, maker and artist Sean Woolsley. This project has been put together by the good folks over at process creative who you may remember for another short film we shared on Stephen Kenn and his inheritance collection, which proved to be a bit of a hit with you all. I’m really …

Van Diemen’s Land Short Film by Rapha

We’ve got a lot of respect for Rapha and I’d like to share them a lot more often than we actually do, I just hate the tug of war that their popularity brings. They deserve their success and it’s great to see the new projects that surface frequently, they are always fantastically filmed and are the perfect dangling carrot to get you back out on your own cycle. Since nobody seems to have picked this video up as of yet I thought I’d throw our hat into …

Beyond the Gardens Series by Lonelyleap

I’ve just realised that I’ve not found or wrote about any good films lately, which is shame because we’ve showcased so many terrific independent filmmakers over the years. To break my streak I’m bringing forward this video series that I came across yesterday which I thought was something quite special and seemed to strike a chord with me personally. At the moment I get inspired by greenery and all things zen, I especially like the …

Short Film on Sculptor Lance Dooley

Late last night I really enjoyed watching this filmed piece which introduces American artist and sculptor Lance Dooley, so I promised myself that come the morning I would return to it and share this with everyone here. The artist himself is somewhat of a traveller and you can tell this has had a massive impact on the way he looks at the world, and equally the vision he has in his artistic pursuits. After graduating from …

Kinfolk Dinner – Brooklyn, New York Short Film

I really love what Kinfolk do and the way they go about things which is why I almost feel obliged to share their work when they create things. I guess I feel by doing so not only am I believing in what they put out there but also everyone that is involved in each project too, because they really seem to thrive off of collaboration which is refreshing and inspiring to see. I’ve always admired their willingness to give new individuals an …

Short Film on Kutani Choemon Ceramics

We do tend to bombard you all with pottery here, but for this I can’t apologise as I’m about to share some again, as we visit the studio of Kutani Choemon who have been operating in Japan since 1879 would you believe. I found it really incredible that the current owner Kentaro Kamide is the fourth generation of his family to direct the creation of traditional Kutani Pottery in Ishikawa, such heritage is really something to be …

Short Film by Yuki Kokubo

I don’t know if anyone else finds this but Friday always seems to be quite a reflective day for me, a chance to look back on the weeks work and reestablish where things are going for the next week ahead. So being Friday I thought I’d bring across a little documentary style film which is quite reflective in it’s nature, as it follows the lives of two Japanese potters who are dealing with life after the terrible natural disasters …

Short Film by Rolf Nylinder

I thought I’d throw a curve ball into the mix, as creative inspiration can come in many different shapes, sizes and forms. “Trout is all”, a short film by Rolf Nylinder, is a light hearted creation which reminds us all that taking a moment to reflect and relax upon a situation is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered. This is what I took from this candid scene that Rolf has recorded anyhow, which doubles up as a great …

Monocle “Craftsmanship” Film

I spotted this piece last week thanks to our friends at SEH Kelly, who happen to be featured in this video below titled “Craftsmanship” which is made and produced by Monocle magazine. I instantly thought, ‘that’s going to get a lot of views’ but as the week wore on I realised that not that many people had seen it. So today I have brought it across onto the site for further examination, hopefully you guys will appreciate the …

Stephen Kenn: The Inheritance Collection

I had heard about this project previously through other websites but when I came across the video last night on vimeo it really blew me away. Absolutely stunning filming by The Process Collective who made this piece on Stephen Kenn and his newest project “The Inheritance Collection”. Stephen, formerly of Temple Bags, has basically created a set of furniture that is sourced and made locally in Los Angeles using re …

Short Film on Bluesville’s Dying Process

What I love most about the internet is how far reaching and open it is, you can learn so much from so many different individuals around the globe. Take this short film for example, it documents the creation process of a brand over in Indonesia called Bluesville who still cut and make everything by hand, they’re particularly adept at using a range of natural dyes. Utilising the diverse range of plants born from Indonesia’s hot …
