francis guerrier

i really like this work by francis guerrier. i looked him up for his butterfly installation but i like these small works even better. if i had to pick? i pick the blue neon. what is that brass bit? a peep hole? for me, it would not be the same without it. i would not choose it if it had no curious brass bit.

madame des vosges

i just came across madame des vosges and i am liking it. what a bunch of random interesting stuff. they also have, and i love, a vintage french foosball table. who doesn't need one of those? there is a box of optometrists lenses that would make a fab chandelier or mobile or room divider. now that i've said it, i'm feeling the hanging room divider thought ... i like the big birdcage below for an art project. maybe i can find one on this side of the ocean.

i am thrilled to report that empiric in los angeles will carry our dna♔lights. i hope you will stop by and see what great company we will keep while there! here is what apartment therapy has to say about empiric:

“Okay, so we are going to say it - our favorite store in LA is Empiric.
Empiric has the most beautifully restored Deco and mid century furniture around and the best lamps we have ever seen. Also lots of sexy, sturdy steel and metal office furniture all set in a whimsical atmosphere that looks like an old apothecary.
Empiric makes a lot of great furniture as well. Many of the pieces feel truly vintage, yet everything can be customized to fit your needs. There is a clutter to the store that we would usually loathe, but every last detail seems important to the vibe, and most everything we touch is like a long lost friend waiting to come home with us... “

needless to say, this is very exciting news for us!

sarah cihat

you might recognize the name sarah cihat from her line of rehabilitated dishware (below), but what i am loving even more is her hand cast porcelian work called dirt (above). the bowl with chain strikes my fancy in particular.

based upon

di overton of designers block uk and owner/designer of soon to be launched ghost furniture recently featured the design house based upon. these two brothers create beautiful surfaces with liquid metal, semi-precious resins and coloured laquers. the slide shows on their website are absolutely divine and incredibly inspiring.

magdalena abakanowicz

walking figures 2001, bronze. exhibition at san peter church in cologne, germany

winged figure


i am really feeling the sculpture lately. magdalena abakanowicz has a website full of beautiful, inspiring sculpture and an interesting biography. it is so inspiring to see such large bodies of work and giant installations. it makes me feel that i can surely create something small if another is capable of creating things so large.

carol todaro

i like these giant drawings of wings by carol todaro. she is also a book artist who gives workshops. it seems she does not have a website... i will have to make do with the drawing.

in the deep, deep woods.

wood london

bethan laura wood has an interesting idea with her stain teacups. the interior surface of the cup is treated to stain in predetermined places. the more the cups are used, the more the pattern is revealed. over time they will build up an individual pattern dependent on the users personal way of drinking tea. clever!
