UK-based artist Becky Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the word surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups.

We quite fancy the idea of one of these pieces adorning our wall - part mural, part sculpture, with elements of tapestry and painting, it’s almost impossible to define the work of Ran Hwang who uses thousands of components including pins, buttons and beads to create these enormous wall-sized images. Breathtaking!

I'm loving the simplicity of the new 'Press' mirrors by NZ designer, Tim Webber. Rectangular mirrors have been 'the thing' for so long it's great to see that fabulous porthole look coming back, and especially when it's framed in slimline aluminium in a colour called 'Schweppes Yellow'!

Here at esdesign we are all about colour and print - that's why we have fallen head over heels with Australian company Kip & Co.
Alex, Kate and Hayley launched Kip & Co in 2012 offering bright, colourful and beautiful bedding. Kip & Co’s collections are 'inspired by the everyday and the out of the way – life’s big moments and its sunny days, laughter, adventure and the next sip of champagne.' So fun!

Vienna-based designer Andreas Scheiger has created this fun series of faux taxidermy heads using a collection of re-purposed, found bicycle seats and handlebars. The pieces can serve as fun art objects, or as functional hooks for holding bags, coats, and even other bicycles. So clever!

Nature is amazing, and here is an art installation to prove it! There's nothing like digging
and sculpting in the sand, but this is taking it to the extreme...
'Desert Breath' is located near the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. It is an impossibly immense land art installation dug into the sands of the Sahara desert by the D.A.S.T. Art Team back in 1997. The artwork was a collaborative effort spanning two years between installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantinides, covering an area of about 1 million square feet. Wowee!
