Beautiful photo stories on brooklyn-based artisans by Jennifer Causey. The Makers Project already features jewels of new york, lena corwin, reverie and saipua among others – each story is so gorgeous, I hope you’ll take the time to view each gallery. I can’t wait to see what + who The Makers Project features next. Congrats Jen on another fab project!

This morning I woke up to find this magical creation in my inbox,  created by the ever-inspiring Nathalie Lete. With it she wrote…

(i send you my little magician to make  you a magic year(of the rabbit)! !)

Love it. Thank you for being such an inspiration dear Nathalie, here’s hoping for a magical year for everyone.

What Dreams May Come is a current exhibition of works by Australian artist Craig Waddell now on display at gallery 9 in Darlinghust, Sydney.  Craig’s oils on canvas and linen are breathtaking…

…I particularly love the proteas (here). I found Craig’s work via artwhatson: “Waddell’s exhibition at gallery 9 is heavily influenced by his every day life – painting in his studio in the middle of a rose farm at Glenorie, Sydney and working at the flower markets. His luscious paintings depict the beauty, emotion and organic forms of nature and their seductive titles reflect the erotically charged love poems of Chilean writer Pablo Neruda.”

Australian artist Hannah Bertram makes incredible, impermanent art installations with dust. She collects her material on site, then uses it to create these intimate, intricate artworks on various surfaces. Read about her latest project, the silence of becoming and disappearing on her website, and be sure to click on each of the installation links to see her process and creations. The project is also apparently featured in a 3 page article in the current (Sept/Oct) edition of Vogue Living.
