It’s weird, wild and somewhat addicting to pour through Anne-Catherine Becker-Echivard’s series of staged photographs using fish heads.

Huge crush. The entire Svenskt Tenn shop is bliss. I’m focusing on the wallpaper alone today. Goodness!

Svenskt Tenn is an interior design company located on Strandvägen in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in 1924 by Estrid Ericson, who recruited Josef Frank to the company 10 years later.

pebble vases : sugahara glassworks

I fell for these unique and handblown pebble vases by renowned Japanese glassworks crafters, Sugahara, at Canoe Portland this weekend. Elegant on their own or in a cluster together. $24 each.

Sugahara has an inspiring company statement. Here’s an excerpt:

There is a moment when glass, as a liquid under extreme heat, attains its supreme beauty.
That moment is captured, and a form is given to it.
Drawing out the infinite potential of glass to the fullest
Creating a unique shine and flowing forms
To do this,
Craftsmen stand face-to-face with glass each day and listen to its voices.
