i'm living in the wrong era

browsing around etsy, i came across the glorius seller timelessvixenvintage who sells an exquisite collection of uncommon rare pieces from the 1870s to the 1970s.

i'm speechless at the sight of these - especially the coats!


















yep. i'm in love.

oh my claws!

this find via bona drag deserved it's own post.

a brilliant collaboration between pamela love and black sheep prodigal sons.




the claws are carved out of 10-30,000 year old fossilized Siberian woolly mammoth tusk bark. the cuff is oxidized solid sterling silver, with 6 small black diamonds set as a triangle on the palm of the talon. limited to 14 pieces, numbered in scrimshaw on one of the claws. comes with a 4 inch glass dome and black wood base display with laser engraving.

absolutely magnificent.

can someone lend me $2950 please? i'll pay you back later...

incredible

bona drag is an online boutique showcasing a tightly curated collection of fashions and collectables.

summertime swimmers

considering this as my new summer sensation!



note: don't buy this, or any item from kayokokoswimwear.com
long story short- my saga with them lasted three months, and in the end i never received my item and lost $50 worth of my payment.
-end vent-

but great suit!

time to get a clock

ive gone cuckoo looking for innovative and contemporary clock designs.



some worth mentioning are
the cuckoo meridiana clock- a clean cut clock with a working chirping cuckoo bird.
the progetti random wall clock - a timepiece made from 13 separate blocks. keep them close or spread them as far apart as you desire.
the clocky - an adorable alarm clock that rolls straight off your desk to get you out of bed.
the Cuckoo Forest Clock - a modernised silhouette design of a traditional cuckoo wall clock.

VITA - art installation

apologies for such a post drought! but here is what i've been too busy with!







the uni girls and i collaboratively constructed an immersive environment that asks what is the natural and what is the unnatural? what is the animate and what is the inanimate? what is the old and what is the new?
using recyclable mundane objects, suspension, sounds and lighting we created an artistic interior installation, incorporating ideas of life and death, birth and re-birth.

who knew what you could do with a truck load of plastic cups?







VITA was showing at the deakin campus in burwood in 2009.
