Currently awaiting the opportunity to order an out-of-stock ring by Mirta, the jewelry line by 23 year old architectural graduate Andrea from Croatia. Her leap from industrial design to oxidized sterling silver and herkimer diamonds is stunning minimalism at its best.

Toronto-based artist Jennifer Rose Sciarrino creates natural wonders out of uncanny materials. Stalagmites out of paper, crystals out of resin & proposals for mountains from paper + glue. Creating geological formations from unsuspecting sources, she is a force.

A while back I was sitting in Arabica Lounge talking with the owner, jojo, about jewelry & he asked me if I knew Sarah Loertscher’s work. I didn’t but I do now. She is a Seattle artist from Indiana, bringing the landscape she grew up with to her work. Expansive skies and industrial structures inform her minimalist aesthetic. A love for the basic structures of natural objects, crystalline growth and the play between order & chaos of the organic world illuminate her work with life.
“ I am fascinated with the way that something made purely of hard edges and angles can grow as organically as a flower.” – Sarah Loertscher for Artisans on Taylor.

Lucie Rie is such a gem. The British artist who passed away in 1995 at the age of 93 created such a body of work that it continues to awe and inspire in modern terms. I recently saw a piece of hers a MOMA and was stunned by it’s perfect timelessness. She was known for giving visitors tea & cake in her London studio near Hyde Park. This same studio is now the Victoria and Albert Museum’s ceramics gallery. I hope so much to see it one day.
Here is a store floating in an apartment in a residential area of Berlin. I found the store & these photos on gemma’s blog from her visit to Bless and Mira, the lovely resident designer. The concept is that you explore the space, touch the objects, sleep in the hammock, help yourself to tea in the kitchen. Retail discovery and also… even from such a distance, great inspiration via such a warm welcome.

This new spread from Vogue Turkey is crazy delicious. I couldn’t not re-post with these faces and this color scheme. Enjoy.
“Milly Simmonds, Egle Jezepcikaite and Yana Sotnikova grace the August cover of Vogue Turkey, with Melodie Monrose, Hannah Hardy, Sophie Drake, Lauren Brown and Marinet Matthee joining them inside for a colorful editorial. The beautiful studio shots by Cüneyt Akeroğlu provide a showcase for some of the season’s most vibrant looks, as well as a few vintage pieces selected by stylist Ece Sukan.” -Models.com
I recently came across the work & multiple projects of Mr. Lentz who hopes to “inspire others to inspire others.” I looked a little deeper and discovered that at the core of many of his creative pursuits is a deep appreciation for nature and seemingly strange occurrences. Here is his most recent jewelry line, the Beast Series, features materials discarded from taxidermy shops in San Francisco. Recycled materials include rooster tail, deer antler, squirrel fur, turkey quill & bear fur. Also check out his work with wood & preserved moss.
