Ana Kraš is a designer hailing from Serbia. She eventually moved to the States, where she works as a designer. I came across her bonbon lamps via tumblr and really took a liking to these objects. This video by The Avant/Garde Diaries, let’s Ana speak for herself, about her work and making a new home far from home. She inspires me as a person and artist, not only because of her approach to use her hands to create simple objects, turning them into somethings special by attending to the small detail – “a shy little gesture that you try to add to a very basic thing“, but also the modesty that resonates in her words. But see for yourself:
How much I miss swimming in the ocean. These are some pictures taken with a cheap underwater camera that accompanied me to Sydney’s beaches on hot summers days. I really like the results. They remind me of pictures I took during my short trip to Menorca. While the Southern Hemisphere is waiting for autumn, we are still desperately waiting for spring, I hope Easter will bring some of it. I am going on a little trip over the holidays and I am very much looking forward to it.
