The sculptural woodwork of Hiroyuki Nishimura...
Even though clay still remains to be one of the most worked materials in arts and crafts, wood carving similarly qualitifes as a very ancient and versatile medium, with a history that dates back thousands of years. Recognized for its solid and resistant qualities, wood ages naturally, is a great representation of nature within the home environment and also complements a wide range of styles.  In this feature, we wanted to share some amazingly hand-crafted art and design pieces by Japanese sculptor Hiroyuki Nishimura, who uses wood as his central material - in a sustainable way. All his works are carved from logs into characteristic shapes and most of the wood he utilizes for his works is unusable for other purposes. Instead of wasting the unusable material he finds, Nishimura uses the leftover wood as a suitable material for furniture or architectural use. The  irregularities, cracks and splits that you see in some of the pieces are deliberate and celebrated as part of the piece itself, where the artist does not necessarily seek perfection, but pays more attention to the overall form. Through his artistic effort, Nishimura conveys an eco-message by raising awareness and encouraging an ethic of cherishing and conservation. Check out these beautifully carved pieces by Nishimura, to add warmth, elegance, and liveliness into your interiors! ...

10 Ceramic Artists that Fuse Art & Design...
The word "ceramics" comes from the Greek word "keramos", meaning "clay". The art of ceramics dates back to Prehistory and quickly became very popular, and is a tradition that continues to this day. Many sculptors in the History of Art have used this material to create their works, such as George E. Ohr, Maria Martinez, and Joan Miro.  Nowadays, new technologies have transformed the certain aspects in the production of ceramics, but many traditional techniques have remained as the backbone of this craft. Toeing the line between, art, craft and design, contemporary ceramicists offer new perspectives -- in this article, The Artling showcase 10 ceramic artists that are working to fuse art and design in their pieces. ...

Blanketed in white - CANVAS HOUSE by Figment & Ministry of Design...
“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past”, says Ministry of Design's founder, Colin Seah. With Canvas House, Figment and MOD bring the two worlds of future and past together in a striking white-washed manner, with a converted conservation house in Singapore, which recently opened in February 2020. Ministry of Design explores history and our relationship with the past, present and future through the concept of layers in Canvas House at Blair Road. Blurring the boundaries between space and object, MOD conceptually blanketed Canvas House with a layer of white that provides a canvas for the future, whilst revealing historical preservation in concentrated spots. The house rhythmically reveals parts of its past, with Shadows of old timber as well as Layers of revealed brick and intricate details of re-purposed and upcycled furniture. At the same time, MOD invites visitors to imagine a future with Dream, a text-based neon piece that the studio created, with a quote by Thomas Jefferson that encapsulates MOD’s approach to Canvas House. The quote summarizes the attitude of the house; Colin explains, “it is a neutral white canvas for the future to be dreamt upon, rather than a wholesale homage to the past.”...
