Daniel Zender Umbrellas

Every year I'm surprised by how much it rains in Switzerland. Every year. I'm also surprised by how many times I lose my umbrellas...so now I've stockpiled some in the office, at home, hidden in the train station (jk), etc etc. should I add one of these to my collections?!

In With Mules and an Update

Monday, May 1, 2017


I would wear these everyday. even in winter. would that justify the price?!

aaand...BLOG UPDATE!
 
We all know it can happen...but I've become totally stuck with blogging and the name 'Village'. It was perfect back in 2009 when I moved to a...well, Village in Switzerland and stepped in to the blogging world. I had so much fun at the beginning and this blog was the cause of meeting so many people and some interesting adventures until I had to take a step back due to full time work, a new human, etc...but now its years later, styles later and most importantly dreams later. I've always dreamt of opening my own store and over the past years I've been brainstorming plus taking care of some baby steps to make the dream more of a reality...and it becomes more and more of that everyday. There's still a lot of behind the scenes work to do but I hope to make it happen! Thats why in the next month or so, this blog will be changing...New URL, new look, same vibe...its also on Instagram now if you want to follow along (see below).

Sculptures - Crystal Morey

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


I have no idea where I would put one of these sculptures, but there is something cool about them, so I thought I would share..
After reading her bio, I learned that the artist, Crystal Morey, is concerned with the interactions that humans have with nature - and the effect that we have on the enviornment...namely, disrupting it and the uncertain outcome of our effect.
As a species, we sit at a pivotal moment, faced with monumental questions leading to difficult, uncertain answers. My figures exist on this frontier, absorbed in their own feelings of stress, anxiety and ambivalence. Sculpted from the silken white earth of porcelain, I see these delicate figures as containing power – as modern talismans and precious telling objects. They are here to remind us of our current trajectory and potential for destruction and downfall.
Its actually moving to read what she writes about her work.

Do Ho Suh

Thursday, March 16, 2017

currently: feeling jealous of Londoners and all of the cool exhibits that they have access to. this current installation at Victoria Miro Gallery by Do Ho Suh depicts how he sees life as a journey with no fixed beginning or ending. He mixes his own ideas of migration and identity with a gentle reminder to everyone of what we miss when we are always focused on a destination. I wish I could see this!

someone tell me how (short of just showing up to their studio one day and awkwardly begging them to take me in) I can quit my job, live in London and just make beautiful clay things all day and sell them?
