Year View Mirror: Best of the Rest

house 2012

I found some beautiful objets digging around last year. Here are my five most exciting discoveries:

1. Yaad Israel Copper Utensils. This studio-made spatula and fork set are best used as decoration. I’m mad about the abstract designs. They were only $5 and I had a lot of fun researching the designers.
2. Jens Quistgaard Dansk Teak Ice Bucket. I have wanted one of these for a long, long time. Even though I never serve wine, I just love it as a sculptural piece.
3.Mesa Verde Pottery Bowl. I found this piece, signed Kanuho Navajo, at the Goodwill for about $5. I think this vessel is by Marie Begay Kanuho. It is so beautiful. I looks like it is lit from within.
4. Mod Terrarium. Perhaps the greatest sidewalk find ever! One of my 2013 goals is to clear out enough space for this crazy plant stand.
5. Art Deco Vase. In it’s day, this case was probably a super cheap decorative object. But I like its shape, its colour and even its naive design.
