Friday Artist: Mike Lindwasser

June 19, 2015

It’s Friday so that means art and the artist that creates it, today we are looking at Mike Lindwasser, another artist I found in the Chelsea Market in NYC on my recent trip.


Central Park Trees

Mike Lindwasser is a photographer focusing on landscape and architectural photos of his beloved New York City. Lindwasser likes to approach his photos using extreme and creative angles as well as prolonged exposures and HDR photography. HDR stands for High Definition Range and is a series of  techniques in photography that enhance the luminance of the photographs and make them appear on paper much as the human eye sees them.  I love the colors Lindwasser captures in his works as well as the subject matter, join me in checking out the images he’s captured during the last decade of photographing the city that never sleeps. Enjoy!!!

May The Fourth Be With You

May 4, 2015

By Tab Byrum


A long time ago in a galaxy you are in right now a whole new level of geekdom was created, and it was called Star Wars (cue the music).  That’s right today is Star Wars Day, a day created to celebrate all things having to do with the mega block buster movie series that has spawned countless books, cartoons, six movies with a seventh coming out later this year and billions and billions of dollars worth of merchandise, some of which you can use to decorate your home.  I thought today we would embrace our inner geeks and take a look at how the world of design has embraced Star Wars, both the good and the bad, and if you haven’t figured it out yet, today is Star Wars day because the date (May the fourth) sounds like you’re saying “May the force” with a slight speech impediment, which is closer to something from Spaceballs than Star Wars, but anyway, Enjoy!!!

Friday Artist: Fire & Bone

February 6, 2015

By Tab Byrum

Today’s artist post may seem a little macabre for some people but when I found Fire & Bone on Big Cartel I was totally fascinated by their work.  They are taking 21st century technology and combining it with man’s love for animals and turning it into beautiful art and jewelry.  Using 3D scanning and 3D printing the guys at Fire & Bone create very detailed skull replicas, the replicas are then cast in one of three metals, white bronze, yellow bronze or sterling silver.


The skull replicas make beautiful pendants to wear on a chain or beautiful small pieces of artwork, these are definite conversation starters.   Click here to visit a page that gives you a more detailed look at how these beauties are produced. Fire & Bone is made up of 3 gentlemen, Jason Bakutis, Chris Boynton and Matt Kroner, each of these guys brings their own unique outlook and abilities to the table to create Fire & Bone.  Enjoy!!!
