Inspired by his father, one of the renowned Santa Fe, New Mexico, santorios who carved saints out of local wood, the artist Jeff G...onzales envisions these striking tables by drawing a pattern onto a cube of local ponderosa pine. After using traditional hand tools to carve the shape, he lets the pine season for several months in order to develop organic cracks and separations. Before they are sanded and finished, the tables are dried in solar kilns, and over time the wood continues to dry, accentuating the existing cracks and wood texture. This natural dynamic process does not compromise the structural integrity of the wood, but it does render every table a unique work of art. Not suitable for outdoor use. Not available for shipment out of the 48 contiguous United States. An additional $10 will be added to the standard shipping cost. read more

Just over a century after the famous War of Currents between inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla, incandescent lights are vir...tually obsolete, wrote Drew Hendricks on National Geographic's NewsWatch blog in November 2012 [link]. They're slowly being phased out, and what's taking their place are LEDs light emitting diodes that can use a tenth of the energy of incandescents. But LEDs aren't only an energy-saving green alternative to incandescent and fluorescent lights. They can also evoke futuristic, gadgety fun. This simple array becomes a hypnotic, stress-relieving light show courtesy of 64 RGB LEDs that can each display more than 4,000 colors. Turn it on and run through more than 50 visualizations as the lights change colors and turn on and off to create a sense of motion, symmetry, and animation. There are more than ten transition effects as the visualizations move randomly from one to the next. It runs for more than 30 minutes before repeating any patterns, and the full cycle has so many possible combinations it's all but guaranteed never to show the same visualizations in the same order twice. Think of it as a soothing desktop lava lamp for a tech-savvy generation. read more

Rome's ancient history is a constant source of inspiration at the family-run workshop where our bronze lamp is crafted. Working fr...om sketches of artifacts, the designers sculpt a wax model in precise detail. The model is encased in clay, and then the clay is based, the wax melts, leaving a perfect mold. They pour molten bronze into the mold to create a perfect replica, which they finish with a verdigris patina. Based on elements of similar lamps found in museums in Naples, Aquileia, and Bologna, it represents a style that would have been found in seaside villas in the 1st through 3rd centuries B.C. The sea serpent handle pays homage to Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. For decorative use only. read more

Horsehair wedding vessels like this one have long been used in Navajo wedding ceremonies. The two spouts represent the two marriag...e partners, and the looped handle symbolizes the unity achieved through the marriage bond. During the ceremony, the couple drinks special nectar from the two spouts, a vivid demonstration of the blending of their lives. To create the vessel, Navajo artist Dina Willie applies a thin layer of horsehair to the pot right after it's been fired. The hair is then burned off at a precise temperature, creating a marbled pattern on the vessel's surface. Each resulting piece is unique and perfectly exemplifies the beauty and inventiveness of traditional Navajo craft. Not available for shipment outside of the United States.

Cloisonne was developed thousands of years ago during the Byzantine era and traveled via the Silk Road to China, where it has flou...rished as an art form ever since. To create a design in cloisonne, an artist's original sketch must be traced using thin strips of wire. Into this wire "scaffolding" is inserted powdered enamel that, when baked, fills the outlines and creates a porcelain-like appearance. Here cloisonne is used to create a set of miniature teapot ornaments, a nod to China's long history as a tea-drinking culture. According to legend, the drink was accidentally discovered there in the 3rd century B.C. when a tea leaf fell into Emperor Shennong's water. read more
