neverend

i really can’t decide which colour i prefer. both? from furni neverend is a series of clocks created in conjunction with a select group of incredibly talented artists and designers. Each piece features artwork that is laser-etched onto a 3/8” thick piece of high quality russian birch plywood to create…

le picnique

picnics might usually be associated with spring & summer, but autumn in the winelands (and south africa in general) is pretty much perfect outdoor weather in my mind. you can sit in the sun without getting hot, i mean – what’s better than that? yesterday i was driving with the…

claude lazar

the work of claude lazar almost perfectly depicts the weather i woke up to this morning. the seasons are a changing my friends.

keith loutit

yesterday my mind was pretty much blown by the official website of keith loutit – whose tilt-shift videos mesmerised me for a full half hour. then i discovered his vimeo page and my mind was doubley blown. he’s been doing this for over 2 years and i only discovered it…

spartan

i just want to scoop up spartan’s entire inventory. they sell homeware, jewellery, paper goods, bags and even diana cameras. feels a bit like muji meets quirky vintage.

when you’re gone

you probably enjoyed the musical stylings of the cranberries at some point in the mid nineties. i love their big hits as much as the next person (linger, dreams, zombie) … but when you’re gone has always been my favourite cranberries track. i had it on tape and played it over and over on my walkman. do you know how difficult that is to do with a tape? you have to rewind and then find the right place… oh man! but it was worth it.

hanneli

hanneli mustaparta gets it right pretty much 100% of the time. (you should really visit her blog, too) images from mr newton

water wheel

as a kid one of my favourite things in my parent’s display shelf (you know, that place where they put all the strange odds and ends collected throughout a lifetime) was this fake shell belonging to my grandmother, that contained a japanese bonsai garden with a little house and a watermill that…

jim tierney

jim tierney designed an absolutely incredible series of book covers for four jules verne novels as part of his senior thesis (he is currently an illustration student at the university of arts in philadelphia). i would snap these up in a second if i spotted them in a book shop.

kamisaka sekka

it’s times like these when i wish i had millions in the bank so that i could collect art like a serious person. kamisaka sekka was a japanese artist who combined facets of western art & craftsmanship with traditional japanese (rimpa) painting. you can purchase some of his work at japan…
