Though neither miniature in stature nor with hairy feet, the Dale family has the pleasure of calling a Hobbit sized and designed house home in Wales. Aside from the exquisite design, the house has the privilege of being regarded as one of the most eco-friendly structures in the world. Forgoing convention, designer, builder, and family father Simon Dale, decided to uproot his family and live a more sustainable life. In four months with the help of his father-in-law, friends, and £3000, he managed to construct the hobbit house in a hillside. Dale ensured that every element of the house was constructed in harmony with nature. The frame of the house is constructed from oak thinnings that were gathered by the family while the walls and other foundations were constructed from stone and mud. To insulate the house, the family used straw bales in the floor, walls, and roof.

Well, today’s featured photography surely didn’t disappoint. There are several cool pieces … such as the hairless cat, human levitation called Air by Marcus Hewson or the seductive artwork by Mary Kuzmenkova. Decent start, right?! There is a nice painting by Lena Krashevskaya as well which you’ll find in the art / digital art section along with a nice artwork by Latvian Arthur Berzinsh. Just checking my favorite section – typography … and of course there is something in there. I found a nice retro eroded artwork called Brooklyn New York by Andrei D. Robu. Right beneath, there is a cool logo design called Neanet by Mateusz Turbinski. How about a funny ad? Not for the Castro regime … but for all the others there is Amnesty International: Castro by Euro RSCG .). For web designers in need of nice leather buttons (no kidding) .. there is the UI Leather Web Elements Pack 2 by Freepsdfiles at the bottom. Enjoy the rest!
If there’s one thing that truly evolved throughout these thousand years, that would be ceramics. Its origins can be traced from the time of ancient civilizations, noted for ceramics include the Chinese, Cretan, Greek, Persian, Mayan, Japanese, and Korean cultures. Up until today, this art still thrives. Ceramic art refers to objects made from clay. But nowadays, the term includes all non-metallic products that involve heat in the process.
