So I had a MASSIVE moment of self awareness this weekend. 1. Not all ideas are good ideas (thought I knew this one but, I now know it harder.) 2. Given creative constraints I will self implode and leave fake snow and denial in my wake. You know how there are those people that you […]
Jeweler’s pickle is neither an embalming fluid nor some strange moonshine – it’s what you use to get fire scale off soldered objects. If you work with metal and use heat, a pickle pot is essential. Basically, a pickle is simply an acidic solution that removes oxidation and flux from a piece of soldered metal. Commercial jewelry pickles are available, and many jewelers choose to use various pool chemicals as more cost-effective pickles.
Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques, a pair of designers and artists based in Paris, have created a wonderful 3D-printed lamp design that will illuminate your room with rich and elaborate lace patterns. Their Sky model hangs from the ceiling and “laces up” just the walls, while the Land model stands on a tabletop and laces the ceiling and walls.
Merav Salush Eitan and Gaston Zahr, two designers from OGE creative group, have created a brilliant bed filled with enormous egg-shaped pillows that looks like a human-sized bird's nest. Now you can fulfill your dream of living in a nest without being sat on by a giant bird or being fed regurgitated earthworms.

The catch? One side of the enclosure is a window into the owner's house, meaning that they get to see all the cats hiding inside!
A building doesn't have to be a dry and dead thing. Italian artist Giuliano Mauri's epic Cattedrale Vegetale (or Tree Cathedral) is the perfect example of architecture that, instead of competing with or complementing nature, is quite literally a part of it. The late artist's two groves of trees are destined to grow into a pair of magnificent basilicas.
Once the call-to-action of governments during World War ll, victory gardening is making a comeback. Victory gardens in suburbia were created in Australia, Britain and the USA during WW ll as a solution to food shortages during the war. In January 1942 the Prime Minister, John Curtin, launched “Dig for Victory”, a publicity campaign urging...
