Our friend Brendan Monroe’s show “Mammatus” just opened at Curator’s Cube in Tokyo. We stopped by the space last week and it all looked fantastic — a nice mix of drawing, painting and sculpture (especially loved the ceramics). The shows up until the 29th so if you happen to be in Japan go go go. Have a look at more images below!

Minka Inhouse is a project on Kickstarter by Fran Aldea in Santiago, Chile. She submitted her video to the Booooooom Vimeo Group and even though it’s a really basic idea there’s just something about the video that makes you want to root for her success. Watch the video below.

Experimental Animation Meets Pottery

Experimentalanimation-pottery

Animator Jim Le Fevre, whom I posted about way back in 2008 (See here: “Phonographantasmascope”), teamed up with Roops and Al Johnstone to make a fantastic phonotrope animation for the Crafts Council.

Roops and Al Johnstone make earthenware under the name RAMP, which stands for Roop and Al Make Pots. I can only imagine how anxious they must have been waiting for this thing to fire in the kiln, hoping nothing went wrong after all their hard work.
