i’m jealous of pae white

Gasp! Porcelain popcorn, with gold glaze. Um… YES!!! I absolutely love these sculptures by LA based artist Pae White. Oh, and her installation, titled Ashen Roses, is insanely beautiful too:

Amazing, right?! Ah, but that popcorn… I cannot get over that popcorn!! Here, have one more look:

Love! And on that deliciously golden note, happy weekend!

i’m inspired

Not my usual kind of post {never fear, I’ll be jealous again in a few hours}, but I just wanted to show you what I found today… I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling slightly uninspired, the best medicine is always a bit of a treasure hunt! There are three amazing thrift shops in my neighborhood, that rarely disappoint. I found a little yellow deer, and an aqua swan… yep, it was a ceramic gold mine! Feeling inspired… why, yes I am! And all for under five bucks! What do you do when you need a bit of a creative pick-me-up? Ceramic animals for you too?!

i’m jealous of mel robson

Floral forks, pigeons, and  a bunch of weapons. Yep, I absolutely love the delicate/unconventional work of Australian ceramics artist Mel Robson. I want to use that gorgeous, flowery cutlery to eat my dinner, while I dine with that little army man – but no guns at the table please… or pigeons.

Happy weekend everyone! I’m going to be spending it with my family, knee-deep in chocolate that was delivered by the Easter Bunny. Keep your eyes open for him though… clearly, he’s a master of disguise:

See you on Monday! xo

i’m jealous of lauren brevner

Every day I take my laptop to the same lovely coffee shop to write my posts. And everyday a lovely young woman, named Lauren Brevner, makes me a yummy latte. I knew that she was an artist, but she hasn’t wanted to show me her work… but I a few days ago I convinced her, and look what I found!

Yep. Fantastic, right? These are all works in progress, but I love them just the way they are! Lovely paintings on wood, and hand-made ceramic ball-jointed dolls! She is completely self taught, and actually just found out that she was accepted into art school this coming September – of course! How could they not have accepted her with a portfolio like this! I can’t wait to see how her work changes and grows over the next few years ~ good luck Lauren! xo

i’m jealous of hella jongerius

Yes, all of this came from one person… one insanely creative, talented person. Her name is Hella Jongerius, and she is the artist/designer behind Jongeriuslab, based in Berlin. Her list of materials goes on forever, as does her portfolio… as does this post! I didn’t want to leave out any of my favorites… like a tea cozy with a porcelain head, for example! How could I not show that?!

Happy weekend! See you on Monday.

i’m jealous of beth katleman

Folding pillows yesterday, and porcelain wallpaper today! Clearly I’m ready to do a little redecorating… and I’d like to start with this installation by Brooklyn based artist Beth Katleman. This “wallpaper” is a series of sculptural, white porcelain objects covering a deep turquoise wall. It is titled Folly… and I really, really want it in my house. The end.

i’m jealous of matthias merkel hess

I would probably spend a lot more time in my laundry room if I had a basket like this! It’s ceramic. All of these lovely objects are ceramic, and all of them are part of the current show at LA’s ACME Gallery. American artist Matthias Merkel Hess has titled this show, Bucketry, and it is full of amazing ceramic pieces inspired by every day containers. Ok, sure, it would much harder to carry a ceramic laundry basket around the house, but I think it’s worth a try… DON’T DROP IT THOUGH!!!

{Bucketry runs until December 21st. Thanks to Junkculture for finding this work!}

i’m jealous of vera moller

I love these gorgeous, organic, graphic ceramic sculptures by German {Australian based} artist Vera Möller. Wouldn’t it be amazing, and quite frankly kinda magical, to find a few of these little things “growing” on the forest floor while out for a morning stroll…

Yes. Yes it would.

i’m jealous of elsa mora

Whoa. I want an entire table top covered in these gorgeous little ceramic pieces by Cuban, now LA based, artist Elsa Mora. She is best known for her paper-cutting work {which is amazing}, but I absolutely fell in love with these strange, delicate bits and pieces of porcelain. They feel very medical to me… in a totally organic, nature-inspired, biology class kind of way!

ps. those feet! i love those feet!
