This week, the planets entered the season of Cancer (read on because this is relevant, promise), a sign that is ruled by the moon, which is for some a connection to their creativity and intuition. It’s a time of deep introspection and sensitivity - it makes sense that the prolific artist and muse Frida Kahlo belongs to this sign. One need not be into astrology to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us however, the digital realm provides an abyss of inspiration, which, even subconsciously energizes our own creativity. So, with that said, here are the team’s Instagram selection from this week.
I recently came across @reticencedesign on Instagram and I found it really fascinating. The page is run by Driaan Classen who explores sculpting with bronze, wood and wire. This is truly craftsmanship on another level - Esihle, Junior Copy Editor

'My partner and I are currently planning our home reno, so naturally I'm completely focused on the kitchen. This light, bright, ever-so-slightly country style, courtesy of Becca Interiors, is just the kind of sprawling kitchen design fantasy I wish I could squeeze into my Atlantic Seaboard apartment'. - Piet, Editor-in-Chief
I'm currently obsessed with Caleb Woodard's sculptural furniture (@calebwoodardfurniture). The things he can sculpt from wood are simply unbelievable, but utterly gorgeous. I particularly like the 6-foot tall Maelstrom cabinet he sculpted for Kelly Wearstler.
I have become interested in archival work over the years, and because of this I follow several pages with digital archives. The Kraal is one of these pages on Instagram, it’s a rich platform that displays historic creativity in Africa and the diaspora. This particular post is about hair mathematics and traditional architecture. An insightful read for anyone who is especially interested in the traditional conception of braid hairstyles and JD Ojekere’s Black hair portraits. - Palesa, Content Producer
