    Great to see my Soft Buckets featured in this lovely African round up. Thanks so much.

    Just a note about hyperlinking and attributing in a blog post like this: Inserting hyperlinks to the originator of the item would be first prize, as a web address that must be cut and pasted is awkward. And when it leads one to a Tumblr blog (as in the case with the gorgeous faceted ceramic vessel in your fourth grouping) leads the reader on nothing but a wild goose chase, and leaves them ignorant of the object’s provenance, which is a great pity, both for the reader’s understanding, and for the maker of the object who gets no credit for their work.

    I’m firmly of the belief that blogs for design titles like Elle Decoration can do great work helping to instill a culture of proper image attribution and acknowledgement, which is sadly something of which the general public is largely very ignorant.

    Thanks again for the inclusion!
