larger sculptures and smaller ones

If I weren't to continue down the path I'm on and I veered to the left or right, I'd surely start working with wood and furniture. Micro-architecture... still might. Alma Allen sure has me dreaming of running away (with a new pup) to some vast open spaces to create beautiful objects. I love that if I don't give you a sense of scale the smaller sculptures on the bottom could be just as large or larger then the furniture pieces above.

I found out about Alma Allen through the opening of the Ace Hotel and Commune design. His shop existed on abbot kinney after I left Los Angeles and was gone before I returned. His turned pieces are really lovely.  Have a look for yourself.

Hope everyone had a lovely summer weekend. It was a lovely one here. xo

Oh and the Jaime Oliver of modern architecture.
