Ceramics and Thread

I found these images of Diem Chau's ceramic embroidery. I love the detail of the imagery, there is much more here than Hella Jongerius' embroidered ceramics. I think the most wonderful part is the thread that begins to draw off of the canvas of the cups. An amazing example of drawing and craft. via Emma's Design Blog.

Form follows Surface

I just came across this image on This Love Forever. Apparently it is an image from a Pantone Magazine called View on Colour. Really what this image inspires is for me to make more work that does the same--what would happen if my forms began to be dictated by the surface even more than they already are? I am sensing a new body of work...

Etsy Find: Brooklyn Rehab

I love the 2d-3d play here with the drawn line of the teabag. I cant help myself for loving drawings on 3-d objects. Click here to view Brooklyn Rehab's Etsy shop.

Trixie Delicious: Vandalized Vintage

I am sure we have all seen this here and there, but I have to post some images myself, just so that I can keep tabs on Trixie. She is a designer, artist and craftswoman hailing from Auckland NZ. The kiwi sense of humor comes on strong in these witty and clever pieces of recycled ceramics. A girl after my on heart. I will have to send her some images of my affirmative series once it is finished. Text and ceramics are beautiful together...

Gesine Hackenberg

There was a mention of Gesine Hackenburg today on Design*Sponge. I first saw some of her work a the Fragiles exhibit at Design Miami back in December. The cut out spoon from a cup is done so nicely. The "kitchen necklaces" are a natural progression from her spoon made from a cup. I love that she is reinventing an already functional object--perhaps one that is even broken and needs to be recycled into a new useful object. Reinvention of the everyday. New ways to display objects of use? By golly, yes.
