~~~~~~~Together...Kindred Spirits~~~~~~~~ We all live many miles apart. What we think, what we believe and how we each live will always be complicated and diverse. It is the love we share; Heart to heart and soul to soul that weaves us together into kindred spirits.
http://www.cottages-gardens.com/The-Design-Devoted/January-2011/Japanese-Basket-Art/# As the Japanese tea ceremony gained popularity, so did the demand for baskets, as flower arrangements were an important part of the tea experience. This basket is made from bamboo, which grows extremely fast which means it is easy to use in craft as a yarn type material as it grows tall and long, being able to mimic the length of a yarn. I love the creations that can be made by simple, natural structures.
Danish ceramist Merete Rasmussen forms the pieces slowly in her studio, allowing each section to dry until it’s sturdy enough to hold the weight of the next piece. The technique, which she developed in order to make the abstract structures she had in her head, allows her to build up sculptures that look like one continuous piece.
magazine 2 by Ali Jawish, via Behance #magazine #typography #design Such a lovely magazine spread (I assume it's a spread about food). It's so beautifully configured. Unity in this piece is created through proximity and continuation, primarily.
