Furze Chan – The Artist And Her Home

April 8th, 2011 · No Comments

As I’ve mentioned before I’m a huge fan of Bloesem’s new series showcasing the homes of artists, and the latest in the series is Miss¬†Furze Chan of Hong Kong.

Chan’s work (which is new to me) is delicate, minimalist and deeply touching, and she takes beautiful photos! She also¬†sells cards, painted handkerchiefs and paper puppets and other fun items here.

Below are images of Chan’s home via Bloesem interspersed with her artwork.

Booksmith: Gold & Silver

“Gold and silver are two of the most important metals in human history. They are rare and expensive. Like a similar approach of making fine jewelry, two small books were made to represent each metal.”

The Home of the Artist – Hanna Konola

March 10th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Haven’t you always wanted to see inside the home of that artist or designer you whose work you can’t get enough of? That’s why I’m LOVING Bloesem’s new series Art In Your Home, which profiles artists and… you guessed it… their homes.

One of the first in the series is Finnish artist Hanna Konola who I just love!… and featured here. Below are images of Hanna’s space from the Bloesem as well as prints from her shop. I think you’ll agree there are a lot of parallels between her work and design sense – the colors, patterns and simplicity. Her home rustic but highly-edited – exactly how I imagined it.
