Every once in a while I come upon a shop that I know I’ve got to post about. How happy was I to stumble upon Oryx + Crake’s online shop on Supermarket tonight? Very happy! Featuring a minimal sensibility with unique design details, the work of Oryx + Crake is pure genius as far as I’m concerned. Jee Bundy, the designer at Oryx + Crake, has used bamboo throughout her collection, and offers all kinds of items for the home and garden – from coasters to cake stands and bird feeders too. I’m particularly enamoured with the clocks from her shop and I’ve included one of my favorites for you to see above.
Jee Bundy lives in Rochester, New York and freelances as a consumer product designer, one of her recent clients- Sony, she designed a custom line of bags for them. Maybe you’re wondering where the name Oryx + Crake came from like I was? It’s the title of one of Jee’s favorite books by Margaret Atwood, and while there is no symbolism or overt connection to the book to be found in her line, I agree it sure does make a great name!
A birdfeeder like this makes me wish I had a backyard so I could put it up, kick back and watch the birds every morning from my porch.
Got a friend or family member who adores poker? I think these coasters would make a wonderful gift.
This handmade clock was made from laser cut bamboo and finds it’s inspiration in nature.
I’d love to hear about your favorite handmade shops, designers and artists! Leave me a note in the comments so I can check out their shops – and yours too, if you have one.
