Every Day as Art

This image comes courtesy of Emma's Design Blog. Yet another wonderful image of the everyday on display. Click here to go to Emma's blog.

This is an image of a cabinet I couldn't help but include in my recent gathering of images that are ceramic collections on display---clearly these are objects that are meant for use on a daily basis.

I have been reading all about Slow Design the last couple of days in preparation for writing about it and its relationship to my own work. I have been thinking that my blog would be a great place to put my ideas down as I develop my thesis. In doing this, I have come across these three images as very good sources for my thesis project. I have been frequenting Lisa Congdon's Blog which has some images of her kitchen as you see at the left. She has this wonderful way of displaying objects of day to day use as art objects--right up my alley! I have been working on developing hooks for displaying your cup collection in a composition similar to the image below. I have also been working on engineering a cleat system for hanging bowls on the wall--making it easy to use the art you hang on the wall. Keep posted to see the work as it develops, for now it is in the developing stages...

I would LOVE a good system for hanging my cups and mugs.
