Today’s post features four very different things made my four very different people. From the pretty to the utterly divine, they all embrace attention to detail and an element of perfectionism.
From top left to right:
- These beautiful flowers are in fact pencil shavings! Can you imagine perfecting the art of pencil shaving to produce such gems? Japanese artist Haruka Misawa cleverly rolls printing paper featuring colour gradation into the shape of a pencil and sharpens it. See more at Lost at E Minor.
- And you thought those looked fiddly? What about Amsterdam-based designer Rosa de Jong‘s Micro Matter series where she creates miniature camp-sites, trailers, tree-houses and suspends them in glass beakers. Find out more at Hiconsumption. Rosa will also be selling them soon here.
- If you’re a sucker for a perfect triangle, these cute DIY leather pouches can be easily made if you follow the instructions from Molly of Almost Makes Perfect. Warning: You’ll need to be good at folding and hole-punching.
- Yum, yum, yum and yum. Yes, you can eat these ombre ice creams but only if you’ve commissioned them by dessert designer Caroline Khoo of Nectar and Stone. Her Instagram is a pastel-fest of (mostly) edible stylishness. The good news is she does sell designer chocolates online and occasionally does pop-ups but only in Melbourne, Australia.
