Ceramic Trash

Ceramic masters break almost 70 percent of the porcelains that don't reach up to their standards of masterpieces. Korean artist Yee Sookyung takes that ceramic trash from the ceramic masters and puts the broken bits and pieces together one by one, covering the seams with 24 karat gold leaf.
The result is amazing - you recognize some pieces here and there but they are transformed into something completely different and very fascinating. Via The Jealous Curator.

Atmospheric Reentry

Gravity-defying forms and morphing colors characterize the extravagant, otherworldly headdresses from the series Atmospheric Reentry created by milliner and jeweler Maiko Takeda. The London-educated Tokyoite painstakingly assembles her head pieces first by cutting out her pointy shapes and then attaching them piece by piece to a larger structure. Logic, geometry and space form the common denominator in all Maiko Takeda pieces. It’s a world in which the simple will seem complicated and order turns to chaos. But do not be afraid to indulge, as at the end you will always find that the common denominator stands (right there at the bottom where it belongs). Via Spoon and Tamago.

Entities and Deities

London based artist Tim Zercie is fascinated by Qabalah, The Golden Dawn, Freemasonry, Tarot, Rosicrucianism as well as Thelema Magick in these fabulous fabric beings. Zercie has interpreted the mystical texts by creating physical entities and conjuring deities, angels and/or demons from a personal realm. With the construction and manipulation of fabrics from various parts of the world, the beings embody seductive high spirited colors that magnetize attention, but veil the amputation and beheading which transforms a grotesque act into a divine one. Zercie sees this playful sacrifice as leaving these beings powerless against us, they rest as relics of the sewing rituals that were performed. Via Lustik.

Wood Fossil

I like these objects by Italian designers and artists Nucleo from the series Wood Fossil. Nucleo often use fiberglass, pigment resin and carbon-fiber in their pieces, resulting in a very raw aesthetic, between minimalism and organic matter. Found, up-cycled wood and neat resin create a tension between the polished material and the disappearing fossil, forming objects that are visible but not fully touchable, manmade but decidedly organic. Well - quite cool! Via Trend Tablet.

Pottery Products and Crockery Creations

Love these unique, handmade earthenware, stoneware and porcelain by Amsterdam based potter Herman Verhagen. Herman Verhagen graduated in 2003 at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He later became an apprentice of Karin Dessag in Paris, where he did a year's fulltime course to master all possible shapes, from espresso cups to garden vase. Glazing he learned from Marc Uzan. In Le Mans (also in France) he learned a technique for structural glazing research, to get these glazes exactly how they are wanted. In 2011 he opened his shop and studio J.C. HERMAN Ceramics where he designs, makes and sells the collection, that changes on weekly basis, because a lot of products are one-off. So don't wait to long if you see something you like!

Where is the Water?

Absence of Water is a photographic series by Italian artist Gigi Cifali currently based in London. Having been built in the late Victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930s. Gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and were demolished. With the absence of water as well as the absence of human life these decaying landscapes gives us a beautiful, nostalgic peek into a lost past. And if you have five minutes more you should check out his series End of a Dream – a series of the wreckage of the Costa Condordia - very arty! Via Ignant.
