Vipoo Srivilasa

May 22, 2014

Vipoo-Srivilasa-9

This ceramic work is by Thail born ceramicist Vipoo Srivilasa. His pieces are highly collectable and he has exhibited widely through Australia and internationally. I can see why people would go gaga over his work, it’s so unexpected and unusual and the detail on some of these characters is nuts. I would be more than happy to snatch up like 10 of these works if I could, just think they’re all super awesome.

Cool Spaces: Incredible studio and living space

May 20, 2014

Sibella Court house-15

Design Files have just featured Sibella Court’s workspace/studio and separate living quarters on their site and I must say that even though there is a lot of clutter going on, I really really like these spaces, they feel so interesting and lived in. There are so many cool layers and interior textures that this lady has created and there are so many little pieces that I would house-nap in an instance. It’s one of the most eclectic places I’ve seen in a while and I wish I could explore them in real life.

I think I like the bathroom and kitchen the most, so awesome.

Porcelain dishes covered in hordes of hand-painted ants by Evelyn Bracklow

April 4, 2014

Evelyn Bracklow-1

These one-of-a-kind vintage porcelain dishes covered in loads of hand-painted ants are created by the genius hands of German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie. The minute detail that makes up each ant and covers each plate is crazy. I really like these pieces, they make my skin a bit itchy, but but my face super smiley, if you know what I mean (I know you do).

Sophie Woodrow – ceramics

March 10, 2014

These crazy-awesome ceramic creations are by Bristol born Sophie Woodrow. Now you know how much I love ceramic creatures, so I was very amped to find these weird and wonderful guys staring back at me from my computer last night – They look like something Tim Burton would make if he took up pottery as a hobby.

– Sophie’s sculptures are not visitors from other worlds, but the ‘might-have-beens’ of this world. She seeks to assemble creatures from the strange notions of what we define as ‘nature’ and of each other as people – as ‘other’.

Maurine and Noreene

November 26, 2013

Maurine-and-Noreene-2

These are photos of Maurine and Noreene, two identical twins from Denison, Texas. These photos were found by artist Roz Leibowitz who bought a snapshot collection on eBay under the tag “TX Twin Sisters Dress Alike for 88 Years Photo Lot 100+. She paid $21.25 for the set and they have become an internet sensation, in fact I’m like a couple of years late on this, but I thought I would do a post on them anyway because they’re so damn special and if I haven’t seen them before, then I’m sure there are a few others out there that heaven’t either.
