X and Y.. we are nearly at the end...
I recently wrote about Nina Invorm whose 'improved crockery' work I love. Like Nina, Esther Derkx also produces a collection of improved crockery, all though Esther's work is completely different.
Esther layers prints of contorting gymnasts and sporty gents (to name two) onto traditional floral crockery giving it a new life and an interesting twist.
Esther began working as a product designer in 2000, her inspiration comes from "her working experience, travelling and experiences using the screen print technique in any possible way and on any possible material"

I have spent a bit of time over at flickr lately. Just immersing myself into some photography and familiarising myself with different photographers.
It was there that I came across the work of Yvette Inufio. Yvette's portfolio is extensive - nearly 1500 beautiful photographs in a variety of subjects - how was I to choose?! I ended up jumping over to her store and choosing from the smaller (and still very beautiful) collection there.

No doubt you have heard all about the amazing over sized scarves, cowls and accessories from Yokoo, but just in case you haven't, here's a glimpse at Yokoo's collection...The soopascarf that is pictured last measures 8ft long and 8inches wide - that big baby has got to be the snuggliest, warmest scarf on the planet! I love it!
