There was a magical box of tarts when I came home from my business trip and this green tea tart was the last one before I had all of these delicious desserts were gone. I don’t have the tendency to drink anything caffeinated so having this extremely tea infused dessert after a late dinner had me wide-eyed and up at night. At least I’m no longer jet lagged.
Looking at things from a different angle introduces a different perspective, literally, case and point. I love aerial photography and have posted about it before. These photographs by Bernhard Lang are taken along seaside resorts at the coastline between Ravenna and Rimini in Italy. Aerial photography always throws me off quite a bit because they are absolutely surreal to look at. The distance between the lens and subject almost always presents itself like a staged miniature collection because it isn’t an outlook that most people are accustomed to. When you strip an object of all its details, it takes away the tangible actuality, making it less personable thus appearing choreographed and unreal.
The Rainy Pot received the Red Dot Honourable Mention in 2013. The cute and relatable creation is by Jeong Seungbin from Korea’s DailyLife Lab. Mimicking real life, the design allows water to pass through slowly as droplets of water rain down on the plant below.
What a crazy camera hog. AF really likes to wiggle his way under my arm whenever I’m taking product shots. If there are squirrels here I’d imagine this is his Dug “SUIRREL!" face.
I know it’s film Friday and that I didn’t post it last week either…But just a heads up I may or may not skip it again today! Will this interesting photo of slippers drying in the sun suffice? This photo is from a few weeks back. My grandma’s insistent need to adjust the drying slippers made the photo better than without it.
My family was cleaning out the attic so I was on hand to scoop up any vintage goodies. This, right here was actually a plaque my uncle had received for…something or other - can’t recall because the paper was missing. I’m going to use it as a photo frame or make it into a bulletin board. We’ll see if I get around to doing any DIY this weekend.
Current coveting: the Memobottle by Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt from Australia. They have 33 days to go before their project is over on Kickstarter but they’re already way past their pledged goal. Shell out some money, support original ideas and eliminate waste by becoming a backer!
This is just such an adorably tongue-in-cheek piggy bank, Greedy Pig, designed by Luca Or and presented by UK based company Suck UK (not a huge fan of the name). Basically what you get is only the rear behind of a pig because the idea is to squeeze the pig into any empty container that you can find. I love this idea because it is not the traditional ceramic piggy bank that you have to break when you desperately need that extra saving…Which really doesn’t make sense because breaking your piggy bank means you need to buy a new one but you broke it in the first place because you’re short of cash. Get where I’m going with this? Back to topic: this design is great because it provides people the chance to customize the piggy bank in their own way, allowing for a bit of personalization in the mass consumeristic world we live in.
I’m excited to introduce White Rush as part of a new collection featuring simple statement pieces that’ll hopefully find a way to becoming a staple in your everyday outfit. Pieces from this collection are handmade and topped off with a touch of metallic gold paint. My design process happens rather organically since I work intuitively when creating any piece – I never really quite know what I’ll end up with. Hopefully you’ll follow along and enjoy this collection as much as I do.
