Admiring the work of Melbourne-based artist Phillipa A. Taylor, who combines her porcelain pieces with detailed weaving. Her unique range of porcelain ware and jewelry are a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. On an interview with We are Scout we learn this about this inspiring artist:
â€œIâ€™m a Tassel Maker, MacramÃ© Knotter, Potter, Thrifter, Collector, Mother and Cactus Lover!â€
â€œI find inspiration from the making process, one idea always leads to another then another! Iâ€™m constantly looking to create a variety of things and Iâ€™m not afraid to experiment and try new things. Not everything works but that is part of the fun! I keep motivated by engaging with the most amazing design and maker community on Instagram! I love the blogging community and have made many dear friends too.â€
You can follow the artist on her website, Facebook, Instagram. and her blog, Ouch Flower. Some of her pieces can be purchase on Big Cartel.

We are always on the lookout for crochet projects and found these great snowflake wall decor on Etsy. They are the creations of Lithuania-based couple, Audruis and Virginija and sold under the brand name, Woodstorming. They are known for their handmade wood creations of ring boxes, office accessories and home decorations but our eyes gravitated towards their crochet and wood hangings.
You can follow the couple on Facebook and Instagram. Their items can be purchased on Etsy and Big Cartel.

Hard to ignore the beautiful hand-lettered alphabet created by Cleveland-based freelance illustrator and designer, Nicholas Matej. The letters and numbers are his contribution to the 36 Days of Type project. His work is influenced by nostalgia, craft and the desire to push the limits of his own creativity through new ideas. More of his work can be seen on his website, Instagram, Behance and Dribble. Some of his designs can be purchased on Big Cartel and on Etsy.
