SHIKO CERAMICS

Shiko1-9

i just love studio tours! seeing the artist in their creative space is so inspiring to me. the design files did a piece on melbourne based ceramicist, sophie harle and her passion for pottery. “there’s just something about the form, the feel, the weight, it’s all just so alive. when you hold a good pot you don’t want to put it down, and i want to make those kinds of pots”. you can read the full article here.

BELLERBY & CO.

for peter bellerby, it all began while he was searching for his father’s 80th birthday present. while having no luck on finding the perfect globe, he decided to make his own instead. a year later, peter created bellerby & co. now with a small team of trained globemakers, they are creating high quality and hand made globes. be sure to watch the amazing video below to see how it’s all done.

EMILY MCDOWELL STUDIO

Emily McDowell

quick! your friend just got dumped, locked herself out of her car and is stuck in the rain without her jacket in a packet (oh the horror!) if you’re lucky, you know exactly what to say… if you’re not so lucky, don’t worry emily mcdowell has got your back. with her out of the box cards being wild, honest and heartfelt, you will never have a brain fart again…maybe. be sure to check out her online store for more creative goodies beyond cards.

JONI MITCHELL: LITTLE GREEN

Joni Mitchell Little Green

“little green” by joni mitchell

born with the moon in cancer
choose her a name she’ll answer too
call her green and the winters can not fade her
call her green for the children who have made her
little, green, be a gypsy dancer

he went to california
hearing that everything’s warmer there
so you write him a letter, say, “her eyes are blue”
he sends you a poem and she’s lost to you
little, green, he’s a non-comformer

just a little green
like the color when the spring is born
there’ll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
just a little green
like the night’s when the northern lights perform
there’ll be icicles and birthday clothes
and sometimes there’ll be sorrow

child with a child pretending
weary of lies you’re sending home
so you sign all the papers in the family name
you’re sad and you’re sorry but you’re not ashamed
little green, have a happy ending

just a little green
like the color when the spring is born
there’ll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
just a little green
like the night’s when the northern lights perform
there’ll be icicles and birthday clothes
and sometimes there’ll be sorrow
