Toast Summer 2012: House and Home

Hello Toast Spring/Summer collection! With glorious weather like this it’s easy to believe it could last forever. While it does – i think it’s appropriate to dip into Toast’s Home catalogue which as usual has the ability to transport the reader away into exotic climes with white-washed walls, floaty linens and airy rooms. I need […] Read more…

Process… Jaime Hayon x Choemon

I find the process of ceramic making and pottery absolutely mesmerizing and lost several minutes watching this beautiful video in a trance. This is the making of eccentric Spanish designer Jaime Hayon’s 2010 pottery collection for Japanese tableware company Choemon in their factory in Ishikawa, Japan. I was astounded at the many levels of hand […] Read more…

Arctic Tumblers

Super sweet unusual partyware from London ceramist Reiko Kanieko. I love these delicate ceramic ‘Arctic’ champagne flutes and water tumblers that would usually made of glass but in ceramic somehow take on a more luxurious feeling. Also how lovely are these tiny geometric petal hors d’oeuvres plates that can be tessellated for effect. The plates […] Read more…

These vintage style garlands made from hand formed ceramic beads are such a sweet alternative to traditional Christmas decorations and work all year round. Made by artist Angela Hodgkins they can be bought from her online store OUI. Angela also creates one-of-a-kind soy candles using hand-thrown pots painted by hand in mid-century inspired graphic patterns. […] Read more…

Since my last visit they have added a small collection of exquisite jewelery with […] Read more…

The Rosenfield Collection

The trend for collecting and sharing collections has really been gathering pace the last few years. I’ve been seeing exciting examples cropping up everywhere from events like The Museum of Everything which curates wondrously themed exhibitions each year and Miracles and Charms at The Wellcome Collection [see previous post]. What’s really nice to discover however […] Read more…

Potomak

Saw these lusciously painted ceramics by Italian Studio Potomak at Maison et Objet last weekend. It was one of those time’s when you gape like an idiot at the exhibitor and the display because there are no words to describe how beautiful the work is – and frankly it feels completely inappropriate to start trying […] Read more…

Blue

Back from the home of Delftware I have had the deep blue pigment on the brain… and watching the Antiques Road show last weekend I discovered my love of Wedgewood’s powder blue Jasper Ware. So I’m now on the hunt for large focal pieces – either a large flat painterly Delftware plaque [sooooo expensive] … […] Read more…
