more Herriott Grace

 

Herriott Grace :: The Herriott Grace story is about a father and buy viagra cheap his daughter, Lance and Nikole Herriott. Lance is a masterful craftsman and Nikole is a talented creative – a pastry chef /designer /ceramicist /stylist /photographer.

The craftsmanship in their wood products is amazing, and the product photography is so beautiful.

What an heart warming tale.

When Nikole Herriott moved 2,100 miles away from home in Victoria, British Columbia, to Toronto her dad,

Lance, a woodworker, began to send packages to his daughter as a way to stay in touch.

Occasionally, he would include one of the small wooden spoons he hand carved. Nikole loved them and thought others would, too. So together, the father and daughter began Herriott Grace.

The Herriott Grace online shop has grown into a full housewares line (the hand-carved pieces made by Lance sell out as quickly as he can make them), and Nikole writes the popular blog Forty-sixth at Grace, where her beautiful photography documents her forays into the kitchen. The full story is here and you can see a sneak peek of Nikole’s Toronto home here.

Irish jewellery designer :: Daniela Cardillo

 

Jewelry made from horse hair and rodent bones by Daniela Cardillo.

Horse hair and rodent bones are the eco-friendly materials behind Irish jewellery designer Daniela Cardillo’s delicate accessories. Her jewellery, which includes necklaces, rings, bangles and pins, is made using hair shed from her own horses and rodent bones she has collected or sourced online.

The horse hair is dyed a variety of shades, including pastel pink, before being weaved and trimmed with gold accessories. She electroforms the ‘small and delicate’ rodent bones in metal before plating them in 22 carat gold, a process Cardillo says enables the bones to become ‘actual relics of previous lives’.

Banksy Diamond Jubilee graffiti

 

Street artist Banksy is believed to have stencilled two pictures as a contribution to the  Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

This painting of Her Majesty sporting David Bowie’s signature Ziggy Stardust face paint appeared in the artist’s hometown of Bristol yesterday morning. The image of the Queen with her eyes shut mirrors that of Bowie’s original Aladdin Sane album cover, with the main difference being the low cost viagra substitution of the original orange and blue face paint for a more patriotic red and blue.

Banksy Sewing Boy :: The picture shows a young boy of Asian origin hunched over a sewing machine and uses Union Jack bunting as an apparent nod to uniquely British celebrations.  Created in Banksy’s conspicuous black-and-white style, the picture shows the little boy kneeling on the pavement and frowning in concentration while he works. Wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sports visor on backwards, he appears to use an old-fashioned, Singer-type sewing machine to stitch the red, white and blue bunting, which extends far behind him to be strung up on a wall.

Cardboard cityscapes by Berlin-based artist EVOL

 

Berlin-based artist EVOL takes tattered cardboard canvasses off garbage-ridden streets, then draws and spray-paint stencils them to portray unpopulated cityscapes.

In the artist’s words: “clean surfaces don’t speak to me,

so recording these marks is a process of visually remembering the charm of a place that will soon be painted over.”

 Evol’s multi-layered stencil paintings on used cardboard and scrap metal transforms urban surfaces into miniature apartment buildings with tiny balconies. The artist carefully selects materials with a weathered appearance to use as his canvases, representing the neglected quality of low-income housing in Berlin. Evol achieves extremely convincing architectural illusions through clever incorporation of torn edges, dents, tape fragments, box markings and exposed corrugated textures. Believing the character and history of any space is worn on its façade, like scars on skin, Evol’s works convey elements of urban decay and remnants of a turbulent history in a post-wall, pre-gentrified East Berlin.

Akira, Akira, Akira

 

My homage to Akira ~ I wore my treasured Akira Isogawa gown to the Australian Ballet gala.

“A garment can transcend, giving it a soul.”

“I translate fabrics into soft and romantic silhouettes, using natural fabrics like silks and cottons, which are kind to the skin.

“Distressing fabrics and alchemically treating them, gives the feeling of already ‘being loved’, thus evoking emotion. Even one-off fabrics found in flea markets can be given new life.

“Richly embellished fabrics echo Eastern influences, and I have great respect for their traditions. Inspiration can be found from the past – re-using vintage textiles and sometimes creating replicas of them, incorporated with specific craftsmanship.

“The number of hours someone has spent on manual work like this makes it priceless.

“I see craftsmanship as an implement with which to realise one’s vision. Past, present and future; that slogan continues in almost everything around which my work evolves. Timeless beauty and femininity in my design is profound, in a way for the wearer to express their inner soul.”

— Akira Isogawa

I must take a pic of my dress to share with you.

In the meantime enjoy the mastership of this exquisite designer.

Akira Isogawa is one of Australia’s most celebrated and successful fashion designers. Born in Kyoto in 1964, he moved to Australia at the age of 21 to study fashion at the Sydney Institute of Technology and where can i buy cialis online opened his first boutique, in Sydney’s Woollahra, in 1993. He has been a regular fixture at Australian Fashion Week since 1996 and began showing his collections to international buyers in Paris two years later.

While undeniably feminine, Isogawa eschews overtly revealing or figure-hugging designs in favour of soft, romantic silhouettes augmented by rich bursts of colour and texture. He also incorporates traditional Japanese apparel such as the kimono and the hakama into his collections, subtly transforming them for a contemporary clientele.
