Sara Flynn Exhibition at Erskine, Hall & Coe

I thought we’d return with a little update on Erskine, Hall and Coe today as they run a great deal of exhibitions that are well worth making a trip to see. They introduced me previously to the work of Mexican artist Gustavo Perez, which I highlighted to a few of you here, and today I was pleased to come across an artist working a bit closer to home, Sara Flynn who’s based in Cork, Ireland. Her exhibition at Erskine closes on Thursday so I …

Flow Gallery – The Spirit Of Things

When we aren’t working or creating it’s great to get ourselves out the office and take some influence from others through the medium of gallery exhibitions. The Flow gallery in Notting Hill, London which is owned by Yvonna Demczynska has been running a fantastic showcase recently titled the spirt of things that explores the crosscurrents between Japanese and Finnish crafts. Unfortunately this ends tomorrow so it’s not like …

Views of the Jean Prouvé Exhibition at Jousse Entreprise

Our good friends at WO AND WÉ, a site that I’ve admired for quite a while now, put me onto this Jean Prouvé exhibiton that started last month at Jousse Entreprise, a gallery in Paris that showcases a range of well-known designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, and Alexandre Noll. Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Furniture at the Modern Design Exhibition, Wright Auction House

Wright Auction House is a place I regularly check, just as an interested party in design really. As a creative myself I’m always intrigued to see designs from the past that have inspired others, also it gives me inspiration where I can find out about these people that came before me and their backgrounds. Obviously Wright happens to showcase more high end ‘art-like’ objects, where …

Ceramics by Fumihiro Toda

Coming across great ceramics and pottery has been quite an easy task for me lately, it doesn’t take long to find an artist I like whilst browsing a Japanese shop or website, this obviously gets me researching on the specific individual. Unfortunately when I arrive at their portfolio page they’re usually lacking on the image front, not in terms of substance but in terms of photo size so it’s hard to bring across, but there can be the rare case …

Wire Sculptures by Rodger Stevens

It’s great when you come across artists and creatives who’re doing something completely different to the trends that are already out there, I’m always intrigued by these new ways of thinking. Over the past year I’m positive that I’ve become more obsessed with form on the whole and the shape of objects, designers like Harry Bertoia are particularly inspiring who’ve dabbled in mixed media. Actually, I think it really adds to the …

Ceramic Work by Ann Jansson

It’s not easy for me to get blown away by design work anymore, I’m extremely picky with what I like and an object has to have a real story behind it for me to be enticed. I’m sort of bucking that trend today as I don’t have much information on this talented artist but I know her name and I’m equipped with some fantastic imagery, so I’m going to to try my best to convey what I think about these pieces. Hopefully afterwards you can make …

Mémoire De Le Corbusier Exhibition at Japanese Store EDANE

Earlier today I was entranced by this exhibition held at Japanese store EDANE which sells lots of knick knack type products, anything from ceramics to woodwork. The reason why I was fascinated was because the small exhibition in their store paid homage to the only and only Le Corbusier, a favourite creative of ours. We already have some books devoted to him in our shop but we’re …

Richard Baker, Portraits of Modernist Furniture

I was blown away this week by Richard Baker’s fantastic paintings of modernist furniture, it was a no brainer to showcase them here for all to see. I think this is a classic example of where two disciplines that I’m really fond of come to meet and work really well together, on one hand it’s superb to see this quality of painting and on the other I’m mesmerised by the forms and shapes of the furniture within. Richard uses oil paints on can …

Furniture, Objects and Imagery from Gallery Utopie

Here’s some fantastic imagery that I picked up thanks to Gallery Utopie (or Utopia in English) who sells and showcases different art/design pieces, the chairs in-particular seem to be quite a focal point. What I like about these guys is that they’ve got an individual taste and it definitely sets their gallery/shop apart from anyone else’s, plus a lot of these objects I’ve never even seen before …

Imagery from Mushimegane Books

Since we shared the short film on Bornholm based potter Anne Mette Hjortshøj last week I’ve been craving a good set of ceramics or pottery, and thankfully I found something I wanted to share with you all on that front just before the turn of the week. Typically we’re heading to Japan, however the creatives I’ve come across we’ve not featured here before. Mushimegane Books run a shop and exhibition a few times a year offering a range …

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 …
