It’s been an expensive morning.
One of the more unexpectedly dangerous aspects of doing a workshop with Helene Dujardin was the list of favourite prop suppliers she sent us after the course. And after three days playing with all her gorgeous things it was impossible to resist going shopping.
My first stop was at Wind & Willow Home. Helene had a stack of these little wooden bowls in an array of colours, perfect for salt, oil or spices and for adding a little unexpected touch to a tabletop setting. And of course you could also use them for actual FOOD rather than just as a photography prop.
They’re incredibly tactile too. Etsy artist Araya Jensen starts with beautifully turned bowls and spoons and then hand dips each of them in a synthetic rubber in custom-mixed colours.
The beauty lies in the timeless organic quality of the wood combined with the soft modern rubber in a host of contemporary colours.
These walnut bowls are incredibly special. Trying to work out if I can afford them.
I REALLY want that plate too.
I was in yet another Creative Live workshop during the early part of this week, so apologies for lack of bloggery. So much to catch up on over the next week or so – more from Vancouver, more from the Gulf Shores photo workshop, more prop suppliers and the KITCHEN AND BATHROOM REMODEL IS SCHEDULED TO FINISH TOMORROW. Quite honestly it’s looking to me like there’s about six months work left to do, but the contractors seem confident.
I so cannot wait.
