i’m jealous of trey speegle’s SHOP!

New York based artist Trey Speegle is having a sale! He’s got an online shop set up called The RePOP Shop, and it looks GOOD! For example, you could scoop one of these prints for $50…

What?! Yes! $50!!! Or how about some paint-by-number plates? Yep, he’s got those too…

Gorgeous! And if that’s not fabulous enough, you can buy one of these original “paint cans” from his most recent solo show

Love! And if you want something in which the paint is actually out of the can, how about one of these original paint-by-number collages…

So good, right?! And there’s plenty more where that came from. Go and have a look… and then let me know what you got so that I can be jealous of you too!

ps. THIS JUST IN!!! Trey just emailed me and said that he’d like to offer you guys 20% OFF on the site, until May 20th! Yay! Thanks Trey! Use this code at checkout: Friends520





jealous of my give-away winner…

Congratulations Kari! Four, lovely side plates from Alyson Fox’s White Noise collection are on their way to you… hm, sounds like a perfect time to go buy some cake! Thanks to everyone who entered {I wish I could send everyone some of this gorgeous stuff}, and thanks so much to Ink Dish for doing the give-away with us.





psst… a GIRL CRUSH give-away!

Hi again! Ok, quick, before I hop on the plane to Austin, how about a give-away to make ALL of you feel like you’re at Alyson Fox’s tea party too? Ok, great! The lovely people at Ink Dish are giving away one set of side plates {4 plates in total} from Alyson’s White Noise collection! Gah! I love this collection oh so much! If you do too, just leave a comment here, and I’ll draw one lucky name when I get back on Monday morning.  Good luck!





i’m jealous of little owl design

So, by now you probably all know how I feel about beautifully mundane subject matter, right? So when I find a project description that reads as follows: “This work is about finding the beauty in things that perhaps one might over-look” … yep, I’m in! All of these plate clusters are from a series, titled Altered Perspectives, by Little Owl Design – aka Bruce Wayland and Marcello de Simone. They are collaborating artists from the Netherlands with “interests are in Art History, Fine Arts, Fashion, Design, Culinary World, Horticulture & Travel.” Well, that couldn’t be more clear!





i’m jealous of heidi bjørgan

Ok. I tried to find out what these vessels are all about {why the strap?}… but I couldn’t find a thing. Honestly, it doesn’t change that fact that I love them all, very, very much. They are the work of  Norway based ceramics artist Heidi Bjørgan. Sigh. The colors, the woodland creatures strapped securely into place. Crazy good.





i’m jealous of samantha robinson

Ok. I don’t know if I’m more jealous of Australian artist Samantha Robinson’s fabulous porcelain creations {clearly I have a thing for those watermelon bowls!!!} or her gorgeous, creativity-filled studio… Gah!





i’m jealous of ange-line tetrault

Oh, the work of Toronto based designer/artist Ange-line Tetrault. First things first, this is what she makes at her day job:

Ange-line is a product designer at Imm Living, and creates all of the lovely things above. I originally found those teacups {which I totally need, by the way} on UncommonGoods, but when I made my way back to her site, I was so excited to discover this very cool personal art project:

Yep. A tiny white house, with a hot pink window that you can peek into, where a looping video shows Ange-line trying to decide what to wear. While she does that, you get to dress her up in all sorts of little outfits of your choosing! The project is titled Ritual of Identity, and here’s the gist:

“... the object is my clothes and the subject is myself. Everyday I get dressed and everyday it’s a long process of me trying on many outfits before I finally get the right look. Some days a certain outfit feels like me and other days the same outfit feels like someone else. What’s the rational behind this? Is it all about the persona I feel like projecting that day? Can people tell the persona I’m projecting based on what I’m wearing, or I look the same no matter what I wear? “





i’m jealous of caroline slotte

Whoa. Delicate, layered, ceramic dioramas? Yes, I think so! I have no idea how Finnish artist Caroline Slotte does this to found dish ware, but I’m so glad that she does it! All of these works are from her series, titled Rose Border Multiple. So amazing… and even more amazing when you see the close-ups:

And I reiterate… whoa.





i’m jealous of nuala o’donovan

Whoa. Crazy, beautiful, organic ceramic pieces by Nuala O’Donovan, an artist based in Cork, Ireland. I am imagining that these photos do not do her work justice. I would love the chance to have a closer look, and actually hold one of these stunning objects in my hot little hands… very, very carefully, of course. Here is Nuala’s artist statement about this work, and her process:

“My work combines regular pattern with the characteristics of irregular patterns and forms from nature. Each element of the pattern is individually made, the form is constructed slowly over a period of weeks or months. The finished forms are a result of an intuitive response to the direction that the pattern takes as well as the irregularity in the handmade elements of the pattern.”





i’m jealous of anders arhøj

Um… I WANT A TINY, CERAMIC, GLAZE-COVERED PIGGY BANK FOR CHRISTMAS!!! Do you think it’s too late to get this request in to Santa? These amazing little ceramic banks are the work of Copenhagen based artist Anders Arhøj, and I absolutely love them! Now, I realize that today is Christmas Eve, and not Hallowe’en, but how could I not show you these lovely little ceramic ghosts, that Anders made in collaboration with Louise Gaarmann:

boo.
