Collections #9

Clam shells. One day I'll have a big old daddy clam shell and I'll settle it into the dirt in the garden and fill it with water for the dog. Large ones are difficult to find and mega expensive as the clams are now protected in the wild and anything you'll come across is vintage or copies made of resin.  In the meantime just a few baby shells. Biggest is 40cm. Bought these over the years at thrift stores for a few dollars. Maybe I'll stalk the neighbourhood looking for large shells hidden here and there in the gardens of the old houses.

P.S. Looks like I have a thing for large scallop shells as well :)


Debbie Carlos

I've loved Debbie Carlos' halftone printed posters for years now. Love the images, love the newsprint look, love the size and the price. I even have a couple ... in a tube in a cupboard. I think I should stop waiting for the perfect frame and just put them up somewhere. Poster style. A project for this weekend perhaps?


Living in the shop ... again

Don't you wish you could just move in? The Manhattan studio of Apparatus. Oh the lighting! Swoon. The furniture. The beautiful "things".
