In the pursuit of devising imaginative ways to craft sunglasses from sustainable wood, the brains behind Shwood have turned to broken skate decks in their newest experiment. Check out how they made these one-of-a-kind sunnies in their Portland workshop. So fresh!
I have a huge appreciation for artists who are dedicated to reviving nearly extinct techniques, especially in this day and age. Daniel Carrillo is the one of those artists. A photographer and printmaker from Seattle, Daniel has taken over 100 portraits using a mid 19th century photographic process called the wet collodion method. The process is complex, incorporating several steps and requiring the subject to be completely still due to an extremely slow exposure. The outcome, however, is hauntingly beautiful. I encourage you to check out this video that follows the fascinating process from beginning to end!
I’m completely mesmerized by this lovely video on how to make a beet cake by Matt & Julie, the creative duo behind Tiger In A Jar. Don’t you wish all recipes were done this way?
Earlier this year, a group of unknown bikers spilled about 500 liters of water-based environmentally-friendly paint on the asphalt of Berlin’s Rosenthaler Platz. Plenty of cars and their wheels, during rush hour, became the tool for this colorful guerilla art piece. Imagine this being done on the 405 in LA or in New York’s Time Square!

As you should know by now, I am a huge lover of indian block printing and thus an avid collector of Kerry Cassill bedding. So I was delighted to discover this video that West Elm produced after meeting hand-block printing artisans on a recent trip to northern India’s Rajasthan. Watch as they intricately carve patterns out of teak blocks and create prints using richly colored pigment dyes. It’s beautiful and truly awe inspiring!
