Ceramics on Manly Wednesday?
Happy New Year! We rang in 08 by seeing the movie, The Orphanage, about scary dead kids. Timely enough, I ran across Swedish ceramic designer Ann-Louise Gustavsson, who is cranking out some seriously great/funny stuff that could work for the Manly Wednesday update, though Ann-Louise is obviously an Ann-Louise. Take for instance, item one she calls “Trophy.” Oh man… Toddlers aren’t that hard to hunt, but baggin one with glowing eyes? It’s like finding an 80 point buck with wings.
This one really kills me though. Our friends have this funny move they like to pull (stolen from a movie?) that begins with a smile and a wave, then ends in a full finger flip off. This pretty flower arrangement reminds me those jerks I call friends. I believe I could be friends with Ann-Louise… I’m sure my wife wouldn’t mind. She’s from Sweden right? Yeah, no problem.
