We’re starting off the week with a dose of color and fashion in the beautiful, one of a kind portraits by artist Jérémy Combot. Fabulous characters with fierce eyes, dressed in fabrics that I would just looove to own. Aren’t these gorgeous?
Imagine having your favorite place in the world captured with needle and thread. Little colorful stitches that eternalize the grass, sky and the buildings in a beautiful, one of a kind embroidery to remind you of that spot in a very unique piece of art. This is how Luxembourg based artist Libby Williams combines her passion for art and traveling; after exploring a new city or country, she embroiders the locations that she loved the most onto hoops that portray these places in a whimsical and unique style. And to give her work extra character, she often combines her embroidery with paint too.
I’ve been a big fan of Kristen Solecki’s Instagram for quite some time now. The super cheerful and diverse illustrations I see passing in my feed always put a smile on my face! Kristen uses different materials for her works, such as paper, paint and pencils. And she frequently works with ceramics too (I have a weak spot for her cat planters)
I’m so incredibly smitten with the gorgeous details in these miniature birds by Nayan & Vaishali. Using hand cut & hand painted layered paper, they create colorful and charming little birds that will easily fit in the palm of your hand. the blue and green European Magpie in the first image is my favorite!
I’ve been keeping myself quite busy with ceramics these last few weeks. Sculpting, painting, improving my pottery wheel skills and mostly, experimenting with techniques and patterns. Today I finally added a collection of new ceramics to The Pottery Parade’s shop. And although the selection is quite small, I was so super excited to see how they turned out!
This week I stumbled upon a lovely little spot called called Goose Grease; a shop run by Anna Leigh and Juan Carlos Donado, who create a wide range of handmade, super adorable dolls. Born out of a mom’s desire to create wooden toys for her little one, Goose Grease now creates all kinds of wooden folks with different functions: peg dolls, ornaments, custom made families and: an entire pirates vs ninjas chess set!
