“The decline of the aperitif may well be one of the most depressing phenomena of our time.” — Luis Buñuel
This week’s edition of News From the Craft + Style Blogosphere has chubby frosting trees, full-on making out, moss and pleasantly textured ‘shrooms, gaping mouths, and a knit that challenges any boring cardigan I’ve ever seen.
What do your dreams look like? If you’re artist Jung-Yeon Min, perhaps they’re filled with swollen frosting bags, intestinal backdrops or Dali-inspired trees made of rigatoni. In fantasy there is no absurd. [Via Boooooooom]
I’ve never gone mushroom hunting, but the call of the wild (er, as wild as fungi and moss can be) has finally wormed its way into my brain. I’ve heard that fall is the season for nomming on squeaky, luscious ‘shrooms, but I’ve yet to identify any myself (and I’m a tad bit scared of the poison/not poison crapshoot of the forest floor). However, the fine folks at Pattern People recently ventured into a secret glade in the Pacific Northwest, so I might just live vicariously through them.
I dare you to find a more human act of affection than the kiss. Human to dog nose, mother to babe’s forehead, mouth on wet mouth — it’s an unfettered exchange that can be at times lusty, endearing or just plain sentimental. Whatever kind of electricity your mouth is transmitting, it’s a moment of comfort. [Via HUH Magazine]
Speaking of mouths…! This expressive (suggestive?) pottery by ceramicist Ronit Baranga presents the gaping maw of the human mouth in all its glory. The realism is startling, isn’t it? I’m oddly compelled by it. (Okay, not so oddly. I love it, alright?) [Via Beautiful Decay]
