Wanted

I would like this meditation platform from D\ZEN Furniture by CTRLZAK.

“In the past it is probable that these sticks were placed beneath the stones by monks and had sutras carved on them. The exact original meaning of this folk tradition is unclear, although it could be the expression of a request, a vow, or a testimony. Although the different forms of Buddhism have diverse practices, this specific one is unusual. It is certainly a gesture within the Zen spirit, which has been the foundation of this project’s creative process. It also followed Zen principles of slow and fast, movement and stillness, transformation and balance; above all an open process with open results which aims to be nothing more than what it is. D\ZEN’s balanced volumes are inspired by a rare combination of nature and man’s respectful intervention. They are archetypal forms that sustain objects and people, imperfect forms in perfect balance. Throughout the long development process the importance was placed in conveying the essence of nature and the balance of things. The stick is man’s little touch, which supports nature but reminds us that everything is temporary”.

David Taylor: Walk the Walk

Risk lies at the core of crafts, risk of failure always accompanies new discovery, new beauty. In his forthcoming exhibition “Walk the Walk” at Konsthantverkarna in Stockholm, David Taylor presents a cohesive body of work developed by whim and impulse at the workbench. May I have the candlesticks, please.

Artist and Jewelry Designer: Lorraine Pennington

I love the look and feel of artist  and jewelry designer Lorraine Pennington‘s work.  Solid and earthy, pleasing textures and mysterious imagery all add up to…beauty.   Lorraine searches for a balance between color and texture.   She applies many layers of paint and will scratch, sand, and wipe away to reveal what lies beneath the surface of her artwork.  Lorraine is drawn to  “wabi sabi,” the art of the imperfect, and  finds it is often revealed in her jewelry designs and artwork.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lorraine through her fab blog, 2BMODERN.  Lorraine’s work is also featured on her website, Modern Surfaces Art Gallery.

The Sliding Top by Minimal

I was happy to receive Minimal’s new project, The Sliding Top designed by Stefano Venier.  Minimal states:  While the countertop silently slides ahead through a gentle push, it reveals both a singular induction stainless steel cooktop and a retractable faucet. When it’s open, the top serves as a sophisticated linear table that can be a bar, a serving or a dining space, while closed the kitchen forms a unique block.

Major magic from Minimal…let’s cook…
