Gregor Jenkin

(This is a bit of a lazybones Sunday post, but if you follow all the links, you'll see it's so jam-packed with lots to see and do, I think I can get away with it.)

Yesterday, I was delighted to discover a new blog out of Johannesburg, and spent ages going through the archives of the fabulous Smoke & Ochre , resulting in this dual-purposed post:

Firstly, take a look at these iconic lamps made from enamel bowls and cups. These were the first works to get Johannesburg designer Gregor Jenkin noticed in the design world.

Gregor's gone pretty supersonic since, and if you visit to his website, you'll see he is so prolific, it's quite difficult to know where to start talking about his work (especially on a lazy Sunday).

So that's all I'm going to show you of Gregor's design, because the second purpose of this post is to insist that you scoot on over and read much more about it at the excellent Smoke & Ochre.
