Benoit Mintiens - Type 1004 (2011)
One of the things people notice about the Series One is its distinctive way of measuring time. Instead of hands, these Ressence watches use four rotating dials equipped with applied white pointers, which rotate inside chapter rings.
In the fashion of the Biblical Ezekiel’s vision of wheels within wheels, there are dials within dials. The largest dial contains a pointer for the minutes, which sits as a comet’s tail underneath the hours sub-dial, and the pointer tracks along the watch face’s circumference. Inside the larger dial are one larger hour sub-dial and two smaller sub-dials.
Highly polished steel chapter rings respectively etched with the hours, seconds and 24-hour indications surround each sub-dial. As the dials move, the steel chapter rings remain in a stationary orientation and orbit around the face.

"Vase" ~ Daniel Cummings, 2013.
(Cummings work simply knocks me out! ~ EdBuzz).
Daniel Cummings (b. 1980) was a graduate of the MFA program at UCLA in sculpture, where he transferred his interest in 3-dimensional objects to painting. His abstract work plays with space and color in a variety of scales. The result: Deceptively simple, formal compositions that belie complex figure/ground relationships.
Ettore Sottsass ceramic, 1955.
Sottsass - of the Memphis Group - is one of my favourite Italian furniture designers… this is the first piece of ceramic artwork I have seen of his…
When I look at her and read about what she is creating, I think there’s hope yet for the planet…
Gorgeous dress… beautiful body…
…but in which order do I see them?
"Hopfgarten" ~ Lyonel Feininger, 1920.
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Oil on canvas, 32.25 x 25 inches.
Lyonel Feininger (New York City, July 17, 1871 - January 13, 1956) was the son of German musicians. He was immersed in music and art from a young age, and at 16 he moved to Germany to study music, but soon turned to art. He began his career as a commercial caricaturist, illustrating both political cartoons and comic strips. He created his first painting in 1907, but it wasn’t until around 1911 that his trademark prismatic style was established. He was one of the original artists hired by Walter Gropius to teach at the legendary Bauhaus School, working there as the Master of the graphics workshop from 1919-1926. He returned to New York City in 1936 due to Nazi pressure and continued to paint and teach till his death in 1956.
"Moonlight Haven" ~ Gustav Rudberg.
I have twenty-four different Tumblr “Buzz” themes… and this image fits none of them specifically. However, the image is so moving to me I will include it on my personal page. It does remind me of a couple of rocky coves I used to visit when we lived in mid-west Wales many years ago. Maybe I should use it as the basis of a “SeaScapeBuzz” theme… but where does one stop!
