Instagram – My favourite makers to follow

I’ve pledged
over the next couple of months to share the people I follow on Instagram that I
think are worth following. It’s all very subjective but as a visual learner and
a modern day follower of Aestheticism I hope you’ll like what I share.
Instagram’s following shows no sign of slowing with over 500 million users up
from 300 million users in January 2015. Did you know that 95million pictures
and videos are uploaded everyday? Mind boggling really.

Instagram is
great platform for creatives and makers showcasing their amazing talent to
world. Some makers have particularly embraced the visual media and worked hard
on styling and lighting making their feeds a must to follow.  So I’m
sharing my favourite makers who you can’t fail to agree post beautiful
images. 

Wood & Woven is
the account of Alex Devol (@woodwoven) who’s has a 
simple,
honest approach to design where aesthetics and utility are
intrinsic. I saw his products at London Design Fair and each handmade piece was spectacular. 

Florian Gadsby (@floriangadsbyis a potter working Greenwich London his instagram
showcases his
own work which is
limited to small batches. He has a keen eye for a great instgram shot too.
 

As a designer and architect Natascha Madeiski’s (@nataschamadeiskiceramics
work has wonderful shape and form and often includes brass detailing and interesting textures. 

Wood maker Arielle Alasko (@arielealasko) makes gorgeous headboards,
cutting boards, hand-carved spoons and much more. Her feed often shows
what she is working on in her studio and frequently features her brood of pets.

Ingrid
Ruegemer (@ingrid_ruegemer) is a designer and artist
based in Munich working with ceramics and metals. She doesn’t post very often
but one of the things I find so very appealing is that when she does post, it’s
always in threes. 

The
botanical art by artist Jenny Kiker (@livingpattern) is beautiful and in some instances
incredibly life like and to scale. She also shares images of her prints and
orginals in her wonderfully lush and green home filled with plants. 

London based Luke Hope (@hopeinthewoods) started ‘Hope in the Woods’ after 20
years pursuing other interests and now fulfills his enjoyment of working with
wood… and boy is it beautiful

blockcolourdesign (@blockcolourdesign) is run by
Jess who lives in Wellington New Zealand she creates
one
of a kind woven wall hangings made designed and made in New Zealand.
