Meet Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, the Real-Life Dumbledore Behind the World’s Only Wizarding Academy
To anyone who grew up in the Harry Potter era, trawling the internet for DIY Patronus instructions and haphazard “magic” scams, an online wizarding school might sound dubious, at best. But there is, in fact, a place where that pesky line between reality and fantasy doesn’t exist—it’s a school, mostly online but with real-life components, where students can realize their wizarding potential. And it’s totally serious. The Grey School of Wizardry, run by headmaster, founder, and pointy-crushed-velvet-hat-wearer Oberon “Otter” Zell-Ravenheart, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Sonoma County, California, and the world’s only registered wizarding academy.
The Grey School isn’t a piddling gimmick. It’s an establishment with a ten-year history, 650 students across the world, and 450 classes taught by several dozen teachers in 16 departments: Alchemy & Magickal Sciences, Beast Mastery, Dark Arts, Psychic Arts, Divination, Wizardry, Wortcunning, and “Mathemagicks,” to name a few. Students between the ages of 11 and 17 are sorted into four houses—Gnomes, Salamanders, Sylphs, and Undines—while adults are sorted into lodges, each with its own faculty head and student prefects. Beyond classes, the Grey School has clubs, merit systems, a student newspaper (Grey Matters), and hosts IRL summer camps called “conclaves” around the US.

This sounds sooo cringe-worthy. Undines? Go ahead and just call it Undies, fits better

Loving this sliiiightly obsessive piece by Sagmeister & Walsh - Banana wall! The text reads: “Self-confidence produces fine results”

Check out these glorious art socks by Vogue! I don’t know much about the project unfortunately, but I found it on the website of stylist Kate Brien and the photographs are by David Kitz. Here’s the link (and more fab socks!): http://www.katebrien.com/ART-SOCKS-VOGUE-COM


After my previous post where I randomly came across London based Assemble studios, I went to have a look at their website and came away with these gems! It’s a mix of a few of their projects and some proces photos. My favourite one is the last one, cheeky guys!

If you’re interested to see more, please visit their website at: http://assemblestudio.co.uk/

Handmade concrete tiles spotted at East London. Designed by London- based architecture collective Assemble. 

Perhaps it’s because I’m Danish, but I always dreamed of architecture becoming more decorative and colourful again. This is a perfect example for me, more please!

A recent conversation randomly reminded me of the above penny with “VOTES FOR WOMEN” stamped onto it. The women of the British suffragette movement used this as a method of spreading their message. Pennies were widely spread between every layer of society and were rarely taken out of circulation. I think it’s a genius piece of PR for a cause that is close to my heart.

A new exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery in London looks at colour photography in Russia. It presents both the history of Russian photography and the history of Russia in photography…fascinating and beautiful at the same time!

Dripping of sculptures by Adrien Coroller

Adrien COROLLER is an artist who likes to play with wood and its aspects to contradict the physical characteristics.
He made 2011 a series of sculptures called Heartwood, the heartwood is the internal part of the wood, corresponding to the increase in the oldest areas formed, no longer contain living cells. Also called “heart wood” or “heartwood”, it is a hard wood, compact, dense, dry rot.
This is in contradiction with all these qualities and fun that the artist gives us the impression that his wooden frames are melting as if they were made of chocolate.

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction."
Pablo Picasso

THIS IS CARVED WOOD HOLY SHIT

HOW DO YOU EVEN

Much love
