The Pretty Pot is Actually Full of Secrets

At first glance you may just think this is just another pretty porcelain pot. But look closer and you’ll see a dark world unfold before your very own eyes. A casual walk in the park takes you into a world you may not be ready for. Inspired by the idea of the Bonsai, miniature park scenes unfold beneath the shade of your ordinary houseplants. Each one portrays its own unique slice of life so that, collectively, a virtual microcosm of an entire park can be arranged. Tristan Zimmermann from the Canadian design team Science and Sons is the creative mind behind these scenic plant pots. You’ll find everything from dog walkers to lost salesman, from a flasher to a gay couple and a mugger, with no two scenes being alike ensuring the autonomy of each piece. Beautifully crafted out of porcelain each set contains a plate, the planter base and two parts of the lid, one blank and one with the scene of your choice.

The entire planter is 6.5″ high and 6.5″ x 6.5″ wide (at the top) – 16,5 x 16,5 x 16,5 cm – and made out of off white porcelain. Get all 4 and recreate your local park in your apartment. Available at Generate

Inventively using records as his canvas, Edlen has redefined “album art” with his painted portraits of iconic singers and beloved bands. To create each masterpiece, Edlen applies acrylic paint directly onto the record’s vinyl. Stark, black-and-white tones enable each singer’s portrait to dramatically pop from its black background, and delicate, dappled brushstrokes reminiscent of pointillism emphasize the surface’s unique contours.
