Starting afresh.

~ an atelier is a studio of an artist or designer and therefore a place of creative inspiration, thoughts & general vibezz. 'Orchid' then, because it is a branch off and a continuation from, this blog & my tumblr.

See you on the other side.

fading hydrangeas

designed & styled by Egle Cekanaviciute
~ neutrals, metallics, platforms, tailoring & leaves n things ~ what's more to love?

'silk and lustrous silver'

Columbiform, meaning the avian order of, & therefore signifying the shape of a dove, is a line of jewellery inspired by "the sculptural mobiles of Alexander Calder and the paintings of Joan Miro, paired with the idea of geometric and man-made elements sharing a canvas with natural forms."

I love the simple elegance of these pieces incorporating a mix of different textiles, materials and shapes. So beautiful, as is their photography of their collection.

Available to purchase at JF & SON.

Stumbled upon this blog; hg, a couple of months ago & I absolutely love the focus upon sculpture, art, materials, textiles and fabrics where each post is a new designer, photographer or artist, or quite simply an object or image that the curator of the blog finds inspiring. The result of the blog is minimal in design but wholly fascinating. It is a collection of curiosities & an assemblage of the odd and unusual.

I want this blog to be more of an accumulation of the simple, fleeting, peculiar things I find pleasing whether aesthetically, compositionally or whatever;  photographing the way the light falls into a room, a fragment of a conversation overhead, a found object or the discovery of a new artist / designer / band / author / writer / photographer e t c.

Finding blogs like hg has reinvigorated my love for handmade, handcrafted things; from jewellery to pottery & I hope to document some of my ideas, projects & pieces that I make here.
her lifestyle blog is equally as inspiring :::
