I can't imagine a more appropriate, "welcome back" post than one about Hair Whips.
Émilie Voirin has created a range of whips, shaving brushes and trinket boxes made of hair. These beautiful handmade pieces seem objectionable, yet enticingly smooth. I am not one for whips or even detached human hair for that matter. (Floor follicles at a hair salon always give me the dry heaves.) But these objects luster and playfully comment on our relationship with animal hair and traditional materials.
I pluck out any stray wiry gray hair I spot on my head, but I'm surprisingly drawn to this salt and pepper trinket box. Voirin’s designs are available from Mint in London. As seen lusciously draped over a dining table, not unpalatable whatsoever.
I've been spending my free time looking at wedding blogs and not creating art or really doing anything of much merit.
Atleast thisESB posting about a girl who can pee on her own hair inspired me to squeeze out a post.
memelodia has been on a lovely and eventful sabbatical.
It's been months since I waved goodbye to my free time. Free time that had been previously dedicated to lurking on witty, design conscience web logs to instead plan my upcoming fall nuptials, squirt out some worth while artwork, intern at a gallery and try to keep a semblance of giving a f#@k at my real job. I waved long and hard to that precious free time... It waited patiently but eventually packed it's mismatched bags and left the scene.
It hasn't made me surly. I swear.
I really shouldn't complain about said free time taking a break. It's helped me appreciate those moments shared with my future hubbers and our wee chi.
After the wedding, honey mood planning and free time hopefully finds it's way back I'll resume being my flaccid old self who was able to spend hours prowling through your sites, pages, and catch up on your lives.
I miss my hens.
