Lucille Clerc. Yvonne Mouser - In The Make. We arrived at Yvonne’s SOMA home and studio in the afternoon on one of San Francisco’s last warm days.

Yvonne Mouser - In The Make

Yvonne greeted us with delicious homemade iced-tea and then gave us a tour of her house, garden and garage/studio space. As we stood in her overflowing garden, with the sun coming down on us in streams of soft golden light, and her kitty darted about by our feet, all I could think was, “Damn, this girl has got a good life.” My guess is that Yvonne does have a “good life,” but that she works really hard to make it that way. In general, she works seven days a week and because her studio is in the garage, right downstairs from her home, she constantly moves, both literally and figuratively, between the two spaces— and quite often her inspiration is ignited by the ordinary happenings at home, so in a way, she is always at work. Dome. The dome or hemispherical dwelling is an ancient shelter form alike the tipi, and there are many ways to build a dome, with bent bows or straight struts. Dome

The dome can be implemented in many ways, e.g. a geodesic dome composed by triangles is challenging to calculate and build, especially if not a canvas is used to cover it. A dome done with bows is much easier to plan and implement, and very simple to errect and take down as well, and the portability is very good in that case. The comfort, if done with thermal insulation like with the yurt, is alike excellent. Yet, there is one noteable disadvantage to be mentioned, the entire surface acts as roof and requires to be 100% waterproof therefore, whereas the yurt or cubic building have a comperable lesser vertical exposure or roof area.

Paris Flea Market Style as Home Decorating Inspiration

I love to splurge on things, but I equally love saving money on other things (so I can afford the splurges). I believe you should treat yourself, and not deny yourself the nice things or experiences in life even if they are not in your comfort level when it comes to pricing. It’s all about moderation, and sacrifices. Linoléum : Tous les messages sur linoléum - delamaingauche / le blog de sandra baud.

Extraordinary early 20th century book covers from Japan These covers come from Bookcover Design in Japan 1910s-40s (ISBN 4-89444-426-7) edited by Masayo Matsubara. Published in 2005 by PIE Books, this incredible book is already out-of-print and becoming hard to find (it was hard for me to find and I spend hours per day searching for rare books). This book is in Japanese only, but of course you need it for the 650 illustrations. Next week I'll post Japanese magazine covers from the same time period (link added 6/16/09).

Kishio Suga 10 March - 14 April 2012 KISHIO SUGA Placement of the Hidden Currents 10 March - 14 April, 2012 Kishio Suga is a leading figure of the Japanese art movement known as Mono-ha (School of Things), which was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

After studying under Yoshishige Saito at Tama Art University, he created site-specific artworks, placing plain materials such as lumber, stone, metal, and sheets of glass in space to create new relationships between the things and the place or between one thing and another. He has always used everyday materials in his works and kept the amount of manual work to a minimum. Kishio Suga. Southbank Centre. Vidéo Biomimétisme : Naturellement Génial ! Street-art et Graffiti.

Experiments In Processing. Design made in Germany. Reid Miles - foxylounge. Retour sur l’homme derrière le design des fameuses pochettes du label à la note bleue. Reid Miles, si le nom ne vous dit rien, vous connaissez certainement son travail. L’homme dont le patronyme est si classe qu’il sonne comme celui d’un rappeur, est celui qui réalisa le design de presque toutes les pochettes du mythique label de jazz Blue Note, durant les années 50 et 60. Blue Note Records est un cas à part et si ce label a acquit une aura aussi particulière ce n’est pas le fruit du hazard. Le label à la note bleue fut créé en 1939 par deux véritables passionnés de cette musique : Alfred Lion, un juif allemand ayant fuit le nazisme, et Max Margulis, un écrivain qui finança les débuts de l’aventure mais qui quitta le bateau quelques années plus tard.

Très rapidement, Francis Wolff, un photographe, ami de Lion, ayant également fuit l’Allemagne d’Hitler, rejoignit l’aventure. MaricorMaricar Studio on Behance.
