Marieke Pauwels

One year later and again preparing an art history class about ceramics. At the moment I am reading about the work of Belgian ceramist Marieke Pauwels.
This work (Parnassus) remains my favorite. The mountain on the turntable (the turntable of her father who is also a ceramist). And that landscape on the wall in
combination with that wallpaper, that also becomes a landscape.
Maybe I also like it because you normally do not make sculptures on a turntable but functional pots.
If you want to see the mountain moving on the turntable, look at her website.

Scotland: casks for the whisky

Of course we were also there for the single malt whisky. We visited several distilleries. But we were most impressed by a place we discovered purely by accident. In this place they make the casks for the spirit. You could see the coopers at work in the workplace and we got a lot of information about the making of.

Scotland: bad weather

But for me, better than tropical heat: mist, a lot of rain and cold temperatures.

Maybe that is why I love this Rainy Day mini blanket. Again from Donna Wilson :

Tree drawings

From our garden, we look at a lot of trees, especially weeping willows, and we are often very fascinated by the movements and noise they make when it is windy.
Maybe that is why I love these tree drawings from Tim Knowles
found here (jokemijn.blogspot)

I saw this collection here: it is the brush museum of LABOUR AND WAIT.
If you like to see more brushes:
look here (mieke willems)
and here  (atswim-two-birds)
and also here where you can see a very beautiful photo

And the brushes are taking my thoughts to something else:
the work of the photographer KOICHIRO DOI.
