Clowns & Crowns | A Whimsical Journey of Dots and Lines | October 21.13

  • Whenever I hear about a new stationary line I need to check it out so… When Liat Summerfield shared with me her Clowns & Crowns collection I was intrigued. First by the super fun and charming name and then by the whimsical illustrations. With this new adventure, Liat draws thousands of dots and lines in order to make this magic happen. I’m blown away by all the massive details in each and every illustration and… I think that I should also mention that Liat would love to get your support in making this illustrated journey a reality with her Kickstarter Campaign.

Student Break | Galit Barak | A Hidden World Within A Line | October 18.13

  • Galit Barak isn’t afraid to feel and speak about her fears and pains through her jewelry. And this time with her graduate collection out of the Jewelry Design Department at the Shenkar College is no different.
    In [don't] Cast Me Away, Galit explores the gap between the preservation of the aged body by society and its natural declining and extinction.
    “The jewelry in the project was designed by observing abandoned and collapsed buildings, scaffoldings and supporting beams: elements that combine the subjects of extinction and coming death with the field of goldsmith.”
    With each and every collection that Galit creates, she manages to bring me one step closer to her unspoken and hidden world. Oh and I didn’t even begin to talk about her delicate lines and her extraordinary minimalistic touch.

Studio Cheha | Nir Chehanowski | Light Illusion | October 14.13

  • Did you hear about the Flatlight CandleHolder? ? I’m pretty sure you’ve seen it all over the internet.
    “It all started with the design of a simple candlestick holder, which I stripped to its most basic form. After months of playing with and drawing different prototypes, I reached the perfect product that combines a classic object with modern design. I looked once, I looked twice, and saw something completely new, innovative, and contemporary”.
    The Flatlight CandleHolder is when 2D and 3D become one, or in other words, it only looks like a three-dimensional candlestick but it’s actually a flat optical illusion. Yep, it’s BRILLIANT!
    The brains behind it all is Mr. Smart Guy Nir Chehanowski, who created this magic with photochemical etching process and used 0.4mm thick brass. I’m super intrigued by this, but most importantly, you too can join this lighting party by joining the kickstarter festivities.

Assemblage Unique | Dikla Levi Harel | Strike A Pose! | October 10.13

  • Almost a year ago I wrote about Dikla Levi Harel and her Assemblage Unique artsy bags. I don’t now why, but something inside me felt like I need to check what’s new and… Of course a lot is new!
    Graphic design is in Dikla’s nature and her smaller bags or better said purses are all about a bold and graphic vibe. Once again the one of a kind brush strokes make each and every bag feel like a work of art. Seriously, I found myself staring at these strokes and wishing I could watch Dikla while she does her magic. After all it might look easy but you have to be one talented human being in order to create such a cohesive piece.

World Break | Tracie Hervy | Naked Porcelain | October 9.13

  • The simplicity of prehistoric vessels was the inspiration for this collection of ceramic tableware.
    Tracie Hervy, the one responsible for this raw beauty, used slipcasting, as a way to work and… “instead of applying glaze to the surface of the vessels, I have added oxides (or pigment) directly to the clay. The result is something that looks and feels like it is of the earth.”
    You know me, the more minimal and raw the happier I get. Plus, I’m obsessed with ceramics even though in this case it feels more like sand or maybe I should just call it naked porcelain.
