Studio Visits With Five South Korean Master Ceramicists
Mesmerizing short video by the American Museum of Ceramic Art of five ceramic masters from Icheon Ceramics Village in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, at work in their studios. Wonderful.
World's Most Scenic Walks
Travel and Leisure picks 14 treks with postcard-perfect views — no hiking boots required. Some truly stunning scenery.
Eight Blue Moments in Art History
The Tate blog looks at what the colour blue has meant to artists over the centuries. Fascinating.
Christina Hendricks Interview
Great interview with Christina Hendricks, who reveals among other things that her agency dropped her when she first agreed to play Joan in Mad Men — they thought that, as a period piece, it would go nowhere and not make money (money for them, that is). So glad she took it anyway.
Why You Should Doodle More
This is interesting — studies show that distracted drawing can spark creativity and improve memory.
How to Dress For a Date Like a Parisienne
Intriguing article by an American living in Paris that highlights the cultural difference between how a New Yorker approaches dressing for a potential date and how a Parisienne does. I love the Paris attitude, myself.
Red Pepper and Baked Egg Galettes
Perfect for a leisurely Sunday brunch, these galettes feature roasted veggies on puff pastry with an egg on top — lovely presentation and quite straightforward to make, too.
