The creations of Lyn Swan quickly gained my attention. Minimal and playful – her items are very original and whimsical and this collection in particular inspired by nature.

As Lyn notes in her online shop: “I was born to work in clay, ever since I remember I have been addicted to clay and been producing for over thirty five years .... yikes ..... that seems a long time, but time flies when you are having fun!” And it surely shows that the artist puts her heart in her pieces.

The Wannabes Project

I instantly fell in love with the original ‘Wannabes’ project by artist Deborah Brackenbury! Here plates play the role of canvas where imaginative compositions of taxidermy animal images are originally combined with traditional patterns, creating very stimulating and interesting pieces of art.

As the artist notes: “Sometimes I scan doll clothes into the computer, Barbie clothes being my favorite, and I dress the taxidermy animals in these outfits. The title Wannabes addresses our urge to create lives and stories for animals that represent our own desires. I have chosen to apply the images to vintage plates to reference the traditional commemorative plate. Each image is printed on a waterslide decal that is archival, smudge proof, waterproof, and fade resistant, and sealed onto the plate.”

And as if this is not enough, talented Deborah also has another stunning project where she designs concrete bowls and plates. Check out her “Impure Vessels” here.

I adore the urban feel of Half Pint Salvage’s key racks made from recycled wood! It’s yet another perfect example of how old materials can be transformed into something totally inspiring and functional!

Here is what the crafter notes: “Scouring the dusty piles and digging through the rusty bins--rescuing items that have long ago been abandoned and giving them life once more. That's an alliterative way of saying I create useful stuff using salvaged things.”

In Mud Puppy one can browse through a truly gorgeous collection of modern ceramic hanging air plant pods along with various air plants called tillandsias.

As the crafter informs us: “They look amazing individually or hung in groups! You can also display these right side up on a shelf or table just by taking the cord and hanger out.”
