The bedroom space from my post on Thomas O’Brien has been a favorite of mine for many years; it shows the power of a well-edited collection and an artistic aesthetic. It also spotlights his famous use of the star chart, which he has written about on the Aero website. That piece has been a touchstone of sorts for him through the years and is the kind of item that brings a feeling of personality and life to a room. I thought I’d showcase a few of his images featuring the chart and perhaps inspire you to identify and display your own personal totem in your home.

little-luxuries

I recently opened the Japanese Trash shop on great.ly because I wanted to have a place where I could offer up quality items that fall into my masculine design aesthetic for those of you who are interested in bringing a bit of Japanese Trash into your own homes. From time to time I will feature one of the shop’s sources–or, as great.ly calls them, makers–so you can get a closer look at what’s on offer at the shop. Today’s maker is Dana Brandwein Oates, of Sharon, Connecticut.

Dana creates a full line of home wares, but it’s the pieces that exemplify her ethos of elevating our everyday lives with “little luxuries” that have captured my attention. Here are three that I feature in my shop:

Bear Crossing Pinch Bowls:

bowls

Here’s a unique two-piece set featuring a bear walking across two diminutive porcelain bowls just perfect for setting out salts on the dinner table or for holding your spare change on your nightstand. Each piece is hand cut, stamped and formed then glazed with a very neutral grey and white matte finish. Order HERE.

Mineral Cup:

cup

This masculine hand thrown porcelain cup is hand painted with a highly reflective deep green metallic glaze The glaze drips into the cup over the rim to create unique subtle patterns. Use this to hold the little stuff you need at hand on your desk – or for a hot cup of joe or a cocktail. Fired to over 2200 degrees makes this strong enough for everyday. No two are alike. 3″ x 3″ Order HERE.

Burl Curve B&B:

plate

A terrific side plate, dessert plate, bath tray, desk plate… you get the idea–this guy is very versatile. Wood grain is rolled onto thin slabs of porcelain, then each piece is hand cut and formed and glazed in this gun metal color called Mussel. No two are alike. Approximate size: 4″ x 8″ Order HERE.

I hope you see something you like–and want to order! See more from Dana Brandwein Oates and all of my hand-selected makers on the Japanese Trash shop at great.ly.
