My eyes have pleasantly adjusted to the fetching stock-pile of objects amassing in the office nook & are particularly fond of these Stampel Studio timber vessels.  

Made from post manufacture timber, each vessel is finished with a plant-based eco wood oil & beeswax lined inner cavity to keep your flower stems content. 

Happy in groups or flying solo, Stampel Studio's highly coveted Fasett Flower Vessels makes a lovely addition to any mantelpiece, desk space or window sill. 

Coming soon to the Otis & Otto online shop. Squeeeeeeel!

As I sit in my little office nook & stop to review the latest work of jewellery maker Hannah Ferrara, I'm reminded of the Japanese aesthetic Wabi Sabi. A mindset that celebrates simple living & objects that reflect authenticity & a makers touch.

Looking over the Artemis II collection, Hannah's appreciation for well-made craftsmanship is refreshing & unequivocal. Using traditional metal smithing techniques & tools, Hannah champions pieces from sustainable resources, conscious to embrace their raw & natural imperfections & re-purpose where possible. 

Soon you will be able to buy some of her lovely pieces from the O & O shop!!!!! Find out more about Hannah & her Another Feather label here

Sheesh! Where did September go? With 2 months of collaborations & new projects on the go, the blog space has been a little neglected. Oops! Absence noted! 

The BIG news is that I am launching an online shop attached to the OTIS & OTTO blog. The shop will feature a curated collection of objects by makers & artisans who share my affection for handmade processes & production. More details to follow very soon!!!

Amidst shop plans, wrangling, entertaining, baking & gardening, I've also been trawling Pinterest & Instagram for inspiration (P & I are both fantastic resources for sharing ideas & connecting with creative folks). Earlier this year I met freelance stylist & collector Jen Vitale via Instagram. Jen's effortlessly cool approach to simple living (& incredible indoor plant collection) is a constant source of inspiration. See her work here

Jen & her husband John inhabit a lovely navajo hued home in Portland, Oregon. Their thoughtfully curated sanctuary was recently featured by international interview magazine Freunde von Freunden. A MUST-SEE home tour! Looky now!
