      • The Mast Brothers


        from The Scout Added 422K 6,718 168

        The life of a mariner is one given over to wanderlust—the quest for adventure, crossing unseen horizons to secure precious goods—only to bring them back to their home port. This same love of adventure and curiosity defines the brotherhood of Rick and Michael Mast. They share a fiercely independent spirit, leaping into the unknown and trusting that they’ll find the answer through endurance and dedication to their craft. They began their voyage in their apartment, using a homemade machine to process cacao beans. Over time they cultivated their creation, sourcing beans from family farms in Madagascar, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. Each bar is handmade with incredible reverence for the process and history of chocolate. They are bound in ornamental papers and golden foil like a collection of rare books. Each bar offers its own story of flavors, and no two are exactly alike. The Mast Brothers are now planning to navigate the mighty Atlantic, sailing to the Dominican Republic in search of beans and a deeper connection with the folks who grow them. Before they begin the next chapter, The Scout spent time with Rick and Michael documenting their story. Visit www.thescoutmag.com

          Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. This short film, by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner, picks through the wood chips to tell the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it. A step-by-step account of the process was featured in Smith Journal volume six.

              • Experimental animation meets pottery


                from Crafts Council Added 247K 4,031 46

                A film by Jim Le Fevre, Mike Paterson and Roops and Al Johnstone (RAMP ceramics), commissioned by the Crafts Council. Jim Le Fevre is one of the makers featured in the Crafts Council touring exhibition Real to Reel: film as material in making. Real to Reel presents makers’ films which are artworks in their own right. Jim Le Fevre presents ‘Turntable’ and ‘Heavy Pencil’, which use a digital camera and record deck to clever effect to create contemporary incarnations of the zoetrope, a traditional method for creating animation dating back to the 1830s. For more information on the Real to Reel tour visit http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk Help us to support other makers like Jim, Roops and Al across the UK. Give the next generation of makers the change to animate their dreams by donating £10 today! http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/donate How it Works The film is based upon the principles of the Zoetrope - the difference being that instead of the slits that one would have in the drum around the side of the Zoetrope, it uses the shutter speed of the camera instead. Jim used 19 'frames' on the pot – a good balance of space per frame (about 4 cm at the outside of the bowl) and amount of animation (0.7 of a second per loop). To get it up to speed it was simply pressing the floor lever gently until it was perfect in-frame for the camera (essentially it would be 78rpm and so therefore would work on a traditional 78 deck).
