How a Former Rocket Scientist Makes the Best Copper Pots in America — Handmade via Eater on YouTube

June 24th, 2020 No comments
Rocket scientist-turned-coppersmith Jim Hamann’s devotion to cookware came from a beautiful vintage pot he found on a trip to France. After starting a business restoring copper pots and pans for others, he decided to begin handcrafting his own, honoring the methods and quality of the centuries-old tradition at his company Duparquet Copper Cookware.

Warning: This is an unapologetic ode to gated reverb drums

Here’s a Spotify playlist of some of the best gated reverb songs,

Over the past few years a general nostalgia for the 1980s has infiltrated music, film, and television. I deeply love those gated reverb drums of the ’80s – you know that punchy percussive sound popularized by Phil Collins and Prince? So for my second episode of Vox Pop’s Earworm I spoke with two Berklee College of Music professors, Susan Rogers and Prince Charles Alexander, to figure out just how that sound came to be, what makes it so damn punchy, and why it’s back.

One of the prettiest botanical prints I have found. This is from a collection of prints made pre-color-photography that detailed commercial fruits currently being grown in the US. They are highly detailed and highly accurate representations and fantastic artworks in their own right. — Douglas

Artist Uses Real Pressed Flowers to Create Delicate Animal Illustrations via My Modern Met

June 15th, 2020 Comments off

British artist Helen Ahpornsiri brings whole new meaning to botanical illustration with her incredible artwork made from pressed flowers and leaves. Her delicate compositions depict the diversity of the natural world, from mammals and birds to insects and sea creatures.

 
Using real flowers, petals, stems, and leaves, Ahpornsiri responsibly forages her materials from her own garden and local nature spots. Each botanical component is carefully chosen to celebrate its natural form, and in some works, the artist even uses specific components to correspond with her subject’s natural habitat. In one piece, a seahorse is crafted from tiny pieces of red marine algae, and in another, a majestic blue whale is made entirely from pressed seaweed. “The marine algae I use is foraged from beaches on the south coast of England,” Ahpornsiri reveals. “I search for loose pieces of marine algae along strandlines and in rockpools, especially after stormy seas, to avoid being disruptive to the surrounding ecosystem.”

How to Create a Photogram Effect with a Digital Process via Digital Photography School

June 13th, 2020 Comments off
One of the first photographic processes I learned was how to make a photogram. Since then, I’ve often wondered if a digital process could adequately mimic the appearance of the finished photogram aesthetic. The difference between the original and digital processes means that the results of any digital technique can’t really be called a photogram as such (I’ll call it a photogram effect). Nevertheless, there are digital processes that do hearken back to the appearance of the photogram.
