Bird's Bounty.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Laura Bird, wherever you are, I'm in love with your work. I love these women sitting on rocks, with overgrown arms and blue-gray hair (a trait, according to my five-year-old niece, reserved only for mermaids).

I love this vase, with its jewel-toned lagoon and painted tiger, and this one, with its happy crouching bather. (With the proper plant, they'd be shielded from the sun.)

And I love this egg-shaped lantern, too, with its crossed legs and big leaves and that little blue cat, with holes punched all around for letting out the light. 

Other curiosities: a mug with eyes, a best friends vase, swimmers reclining in shallow stoneware pools (perfect for keeping jewelry, Bird says). Bookmarking it all. See more, here.

Here's what has been inspiring me lately:

Have you seen House of Cards? I adore it!

Love from Germany,

These are such beautiful sculptures and pieces. They remind me of ancient Cycladic art and matriarchic communities. So pretty.
