favela chair by the campana brothers

look at this favela chair made by design team (and brothers) fernando and humberto campana. each small piece of wood is glued and nailed by hand to make the one of a kind pieces, which resemble the shacks in the shantytowns of brazil for which the chair is named.


purchase it right here (and i hope for this price they are donating a portion to the people in those shantytowns).

sarah thirlwell’s sustainable wood accessories and a nice chat with anna higgie


a wearable salute to say anything and three questions for iris schwarz


munire kirmaci’s oh-so-elegant dual salt and pepper

we had a terrible health scare with nestle, our beloved bernese mountain dog on monday, and this week was one of the worst i have ever had. the vet first thought he had cancer but after the test results were examined by a pathologist they called (today) and reversed their grim diagnosis. he is feeling much better and we remain cautiously optimistic about his health. while all this was happening i was a complete wreck. we’ve had him since he was six weeks old and he is the closest thing to a child that we have — it might sound ridiculous but it’s the truth! anyway, while i was falling apart this week, unbeknownst to you, some extremely encouraging emails and kind comments floated in from many of you reading out there. i cannot explain how gently these small gestures lifted me up during a very brief but extremely dark period of time. even though you had no idea, you have helped me so much, and i thank you enormously for your continued interest and feedback.

i can’t believe how lucky i am to have made friends all over the world who are an active part of the weaving of this beautiful quilt, made of words and pictures, here on this site. thank you all so much for coming over, even if it’s just for a minute. and please! stay tuned for next week’s delicious tidbits of art, craft and design. good stuff coming, including a stoney end of week round up, a miniview with a terrific crafter and a great let’s chat! with a very skillful painter!

bingo clock by margaret taylor

i love bingo, and i am not ashamed to say it. i remember my hip (read: younger) cousins telling me they used to play in the west village at a bar every week about ten years ago. at the time i thought they were nuts, but now i see the light. i can see what time it is too, with this fun bingo clock from margaret taylor, the fantastic reclaimed barnwood furniture maker who has graced this space before. these are handmade pieces, made from vintage bingo cards from st. leo’s church in pennsylvania, and mounted on reclaimed wood.


find the clock at uncommon goods, and see the hook and other wonderful things on margaret’s website.

sarah thirlwell contemporary wood accessories

i love the contemporary handturned birch, ash and sycamore home and personal adornments with vibrant acrylic accents from uk artist sarah thirlwell. sarah uses sustainable timber and reclaimed acrylic to create these pieces, and her collection includes vessels, vases and jewelry.





sarah will be exhibiting at the liverpool design show from june 19th – 22nd, 2008. see her full collection and contact her on her website.
