Greg Klassen.

To make his furniture, artist Greg Klassen collects trees (in a sustainable way, I might mention) from the river bed of the Nooksack River which flows near his home in Lynden, Washington and then transforms them into gorgeous works of art; cutting, carving and sanding them all by hand.  You can see more of the gorgeous work below!

The freedom that I have to make terrible stuff … also increases the chances that, sometimes, I’ll end up making something good.


There is an emancipation that comes along with being so content with what you’re doing that external circumstances don’t really matter. And I think the only thorough gift I have is a profound, comprehensive love for what I’m doing, where it’s nice if I have an audience, but that’s not the goal; it’s not if something generates viable and lucrative revenue streams but, again, that’s not the goal — these are external byproducts of this process that I love more than anything…

And, not to be all New-Agey or weird, but I do think that’s everyone’s birthright — allowing yourself to find the things that you love and dedicate your life to doing them, because we’re only around for a short period of time.


Speaking at Creative Mornings LA, philosophy-major-turned-superstar-musician Moby makes a beautiful case for the creative benefits of failure and the importance of finding your purpose.

asylum-art: Soundsuits’ of Artist & Fashion Designer Nick Cave

"Nick Cave (born 1959 in central Missouri, USA) is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly."
“Cave’s first Soundsuit was made of twigs. Other typical materials include dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. His work is a crazy mix of media—these bunny suits are made of human hair, and others are montages of vintage finds, beads, buttons and old style needle crafts like crocheting and macrame. The finished pieces bear some resemblance to African ceremonial costumes and masks. His suits are presented for public viewing as static sculptures, but also through live performance, video, and photograph
