I love this shot. It came in one of those inspiring emails that everyone receives now and then in their in box. Doesn't everyone need to feel loved, protected, covered and safe? I don't know who the photographer is but I bet they felt privileged to see this.

Paperware Cups

'Finest Paperware' by Rebecca Wilson, 'Blue Delft' in porcelain. All images courtesy of Rebecca Wilson

Responding to the wasteful culture of convenience and consumption, Scottish ceramicist Rebecca Wilson elevates the paper cup into an art object, with hand-drawn patterns and produced by slip-casting techniques. The artist explains her process:'to create a ‘symmetry of opposites’ some of these cups are assembled from cast sheets of handmade paper; others are hand-built from sheets of specially a specially formulated porcelain and paper pulp mixture. The ‘jasperware’ set emulates wedgewood’s iconic range using stained paper and porcelain, and embossed relief details in white. The dutch classic ‘blue delft’ is alluded to in hand drawn details in blue Biro, which have been scanned and digitally transformed into enamel decals for application to porcelain.'

Nostalgia Trend

Why are the 50's, 60's and 70's so influential on our society now? Why are we so nostalgic? Nostalgia is defined as 'a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time'. Were we as a society happier in the 50's, 60's and 70's than we are now? Over the weekend I went to the movies with my girlfriends to see 'The Help'. I loved the movie and the message it has, but I can't imagine that people were happier then, at least not in retrospect. Each decade has its high moments and its low ones, and we can learn from what we've experienced. Maybe it's the voyeur in us that wants to peer into the past in order to make sense of where we are now. I think as we continue to simplify our lives we will continue to look back to what we think were simpler times for our courage and inspiration. The 50's were a time when America was prospering and creating new opportunities. The 60's were a time of rebellion and youth culture trying their wings, flapping against tradition and the paradigms of society. And the 70's was a time of self awareness and self empowerment, inspiring creativity and freedom. Like it or not we are all connected through technology and time, past and present. It truly is a small world.

Inspiration Friday

"I hearby declare that Friday is Inspiration Day," she said as she stared at her computer screen late Friday afternoon, wondering what in the world she was going to write about. Actually, there is much to write about and so very little time. Therefore, be inspired by these three things:

1. BOOK PALLET by Yusuke Suzuki

2. WONDERPUSS OCTYPUS Puff paint creations. Really amazing!

3. BIG SUR, because really, is there anything more breathtaking than a look at the ocean?
