A pencil case...

What a fab idea by design duo boex 3D. Just in case you were thinking of making it yourself... you will need 1600 bright pink pencils. :D

Acanthus by Patrick Blanchard

Absolutely love the organic feel and understated elegance of Patrick Blanchard's Acanthus. In true spirit of art nouveau, these table lamps are inspired from the study of nature and flora. These lamps are made from sycamore and lime but can you imagine them in clay....?

Style with practicality - Reinier de Jong

Super practical, super modern and super cool the best describe Reinier de Jong's designs. Here are my two favourites; Keer and Rek.

Keer is a chair that can be either bar stool, either chair or a lounger / recliner and keer is an expandable bookase, how cool is that?

Ceramic voyages - Jo Davies

Jo Davies

Jo Davies' work is a mix of rococo elegance and opulence with pop kitsch. Her pieces fully explore clay as a medium, emphasising its mailability and allowing for bringing together of contrasts – wriggling and still, wet and dry, sharp edges and blunt forms. Extremely beautiful, I am loving every single one of them.

I am mesmerized by these cans. The contrast between modern commercial object and traditional Chinese porcelain painting is just fantastic.
