A twig on your dining table

Designer: George Dubinsky

Can you find a better twig on your dining table?!

Better call it artwork!

“My work as a craftsmen designer is intended to provoke positive change in the way we value objects, and our environment. I intend to work in a way that spans the boundaries of craft and design.”  –  George Dubinsky

Agree! The designer’s own words describe exactly what I wanted to say about this creation!

Love the perfect seamless blend of nature and product!

The designer of this piece George Dubinsky is a student? at Rhode Island School of Design, Providence.

Gimme a flower of a cigarette …


 Gimme a flower of a cigarette any day!

Show concern to your near & dear addicts!

Play a lovely prank!

After watching this video you can also make a statement!

Till I figure out a way to put this video here (if at all I can figure out?)

go check this simply interesting how-to video – Flower or Cigarette? by  Crow Casla  @ Metacafe.

Happy flowers-moking!

Up the wall!

I was away not just from blogging but emails, computer and pretty much everything.

I was driven up the wall by the red tapism and mismanagement in our education system (just like this sofa).

I was running all the while (one month +) for my daughter’s admission in a good college in her chosen stream. Period!

Even IF I had time I could not have been able to open the computer let alone blog as I was too tense all the time!

Thank God that I have come out sane from this!

And my daughter eventually got admission where she wanted!

Out of many bitter lessons learnt I want to mention just one.

Our education system does not think that internet and simple phone are marvellous inventions – time saving devices. Instead people belonging to this field think their stature would go down if they ever answer by phone or put some info on net!

I don’t want to say sorry for my absence but definitely want to say thank you all that came regularly to my blog and commented. Wrote to me showing concern via mails or via comments.

I especially want to thank Maryam, Geetha, Oorie, Palak and Niharika.

I also want to welcome newbies on my blog who wrote to me but I could not answer them!

 Will write to you all soon.

I am back!

Architects: Dipen Gada & Associates

Yes I am back. And where was I? Can’t answer that as I don’t want to post something very negative right away.

So my story of gone missing without notice in next post! 

And here are some enduring images of clean, geometric, modern architecture from the Vadodara (Gujarat) based firm Dipen Gada & Associates.

Remember my post on exotic interiors done by DGA. 

In architecture too they are moving selectively towards showing great amount of talent.
