Wordshop Wednesday: Raquel Masri!

Thanks to my new BBFF (Best Blogger Friend Forever), Mme Perpetua, for introducing me to the lovely porcelain creations of Raquel Masri, which you really should check out if you know what’s good for you (and I think you do).

The following images are borrowed from Raquel’s Etsy shop:

My love for this "Majuscule" alphabet dish would not exist without Mme Perpetua's prompting. :)

And, finally, the following tiles with the WWII message that has gained a noticeable increase in popularity in recent months:

I kind of resent this statement (“Keep calm and carry on.”). It sounds somewhat dismissive to me. Sort of like, if you’re calm about what’s going on right now (or during any wartime — which, to me, is a time of great unrest and injustice to some/all), then you’re not paying attention.

Maybe I’ll write more about it on my other blog.

But, for now, enjoy the ceramics. They’re cool regardless. 🙂

Wordshop Wednesday!

You’ve all been to the Poppy Talk site, right? Please tell me you have. Because it’s an amazing foundry of design brilliance and constantly introduces new or newly-discovered artists. And well, I was recently foraging through the Handmade” section of the PoppyTalk site, and I came across some brilliantly executed words thanks to:

which stopped me in my cyber tracks. Once I collected myself, I clicked over to Paloma’s Nest, yet another Etsy wonder, where I discovered even more brilliance. Here you go, blog reader people. You can thank me later. Or sooner. Whichever you prefer. In any case, enjoy…
