A TOUCH OF GREATNESS


We must remember how children learn rather than how we teach. Through movement, through emotions, through activities, through projects—all the basics fit in. And they’re learning without realizing they’re learning.”

A Touch of Greatness documentary film about the remarkable educator Albert Cullum. Watch another trailer here.

Andy suggested we watch this and I’m so glad we did. What a freaking awesome teacher.

CARL AUBÖCK



I’m so glad I was able to see the beautiful work of Carl Auböck in person at Mondo Cane Gallery in Tribeca. I think it closes today. Go see it if you can!

SWEET BELLA


Made by Massimo Lunardon as a special production for Sweet Bella, these ‘bombons’ are for pencils or flowers or any small thing (or nothing at all).


Pincushions
Designed and made by a couple in Japan. The husband crafts the keyaki (Japanese elm) base and the wife stitches up the squares of vintage kimono fabric she’s collected for many, many years. Colors will vary.

MR. BRUSHSHOE natural beech and horsehair shoe brush
Located in the former Home for the Blind in Berlin, the workshop which produces these brushes employs fifteen blind artisans using traditional craft techniques that the Institute for the Blind has developed over the last 120+ years.
