embroidered silver platter

I am totally amazed by this piece by Lynette Andreasen! She found an antique silver platter and embroidered an outline of an old image of her father’s family onto it. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was embroidered leather and that it was very cool – so you can imagine my reaction when I found it was a silver platter – even cooler! Check out Lynette’s pictures too; she has an interesting little artist’s statement there.

L.E.D. Sheep!

There are no words for this video other than totally awesome! Samsung paid these guys to go to Wales and put some LED lights on sheep and herd them into patterns to make different displays! The sheep were probably kind of confused, but boy did they help make some cool visuals! Check it out, it is just amazing!

P.S. Props to the sheepdogs too!

another little note on Holi

I know many of you may have already seen this video, but since I posted earlier today about the Hindu holiday Holi, I couldn’t resist posting this old video we have of two of our designers enjoying Holi at one of our factories in India. They happened to be there working during the festival that year, and had a blast celebrating with everyone! It looks like so much fun!
