Type Delight: The work of Stefan Kunz

It is always a delight to see Stefan Kunz's inspiring lettering work. Not only is the craftsmanship something to enjoy, but the content of his work is always uplifting and motivational. And yes, he really inspires us to pick up the pens and get back to the sketchbooks again to better our hand at lettering and drawing. Based in Zurich, Stefan's work ranges from motivational quotes and Bible verses, art murals, art prints, his sketchbooks and the occasional object also gets donned with his masterwork. He documents his work on his Instagram page, and you can also check out his website here.

Ceramics Exhibition

Royale Eatery in Cape Town is hosting a marvelous exhibition curated by illustrator and ceramics artist Elise Wessels called “CHAMPAGNE for my real friends”. 27 artists were handed 2 handcrafted plates each, for them to decorate the plates with their own designs and concepts. Elise then collected the plates from them to glaze and fire them. Most of the artists have never worked with ceramics before, and the results are sometimes surprising, but above all astoundingly beautiful.

The exhibition is on until 11 January 2013, so do yourself a favor and drop in to see their handiwork.

Click here for more information on the exhibition, the artists and to view Elise Wessels portfolio.

Wooden Masks by AJ Fossik

The masterful work of AJ Fossik is intriguing and mesmerising. Working from Philadelphia in the US, AJ has been creating 3 dimensional wood constructions for quite a few years now. His work shows excellent craftsmanship, uniqueness and reminds one of totem-like characters out of old folk tales and night mares. Yet, you cannot stop staring and investigating these strange and beautiful characters fiercely glaring at you. We love AJ's ferocious yet colourful wooden masks. Below are some of our favourites.
