Thar She Blows!

There were probably a few sore heads in Seattle after the Seahawks demolished the Broncos at this year’s Super Bowl, but whether it’s a hair of the dog or a plate of healthy hangover-fighting fare that the doctor ordered, you’ll find it at The Whale Wins. Located in the Fremont Collective, it comes from the team behind The Walrus and the Carpenter and is marshalled by head chef Renee Erickson, who is all about the fresh produce.

The philosophy is central to the design of The Whale Wins. Meats are cooked in a wood-fired oven which has a lovely marble surround inset into the white brick, and all through the restaurant that preference towards natural materials, even down to the choice of decoration, gives TWW a homely, cottage feel even though the double height dining space has barn-like proportions. All sorts of tasty looking farmhouse goodies lines the shelves, and that local produce is one of the cornerstones of everything that happens here.

Seattle’s gum wall gets put in its place, somewhat

Seattle’s gum wall gets put in its place, somewhat

Seattle’s offbeat gum wall attraction has been steadily extending its territory with colourful wads of public donations over the years, to the point of spreading as far as 40 feet beyond its designated canvas near the Market Theater box office. So, in July this year, it got put in its place with a bit of pressure cleaning. It’s still not tricking us into a sticky bear hug with the wall though. These pictures show the wall in its full gross glory before the washup.

Seattle Church Gets A Bright, Modern Twist On Stained Glass Windows

With great panes, Olson Kundig Architects meld gothic stained glass and Le Corbusier–style architecture.

Sainte–Chapelle, the more petite Parisian structure in Notre Dame's shadow, was built in 1248 as a house for King Louis IX to stash his collection of religious relics. The 50–foot–high stained glass windows and ornate stone sculptures allegedly cost half of his fortune.

In the Heart of Stumptown for Bon Appetit

We Are The Rhoads got to know Duane Sorenson, founder of Stumptown Coffee Roasters, for October’s Bon Appétit magazine. “When we moved to Seattle seven years ago, we stumbled upon Stumptown and I can say it is hands-down some of the best coffee I’ve had Stateside,” wrote Sarah Rhoads on the photography duo’s blog.

She and husband Chris documented Sorenson, his family, and his closest friends at brunchtime in his Portland home – resulting in a series of black-and-white portraits and colorful food shots.

“He opened us up to his favorite dishes,” including sausage and broccoli rabe frittata, hot-smoked salmon with caper cream cheese, and hazelnut granola, “along with killer Bloody Marys and a special coffee concoction, all of which I highly recommend,” Sarah remarked.

‘Life Aquatic’ for Kinfolk Magazine

We Are The Rhoads contributed a photo-essay, called “Life Aquatic,” and a video to Kinfolk‘s Weekend Issue. “Chris and I wanted to tell a story about the Pacific Northwest, where we live,” explained Sarah Rhoads, half of the husband-and-wife team. “We wanted to capture what makes this place special to us – the smell of salt in the air and how much we enjoy sailing between the islands on a brisk foggy morning.”

The Rhoads pitched a sailing story to the publication’s editor-in-chief, Nathan Williams, that would picture three sailor-friends in Seattle, “getting out on one of our favorite boats, docking at a lighthouse down the street from our house that we often visit, and eating some fish,” Sarah recalled. “Kinfolk loved the idea and gave us the freedom to art-direct and run with our vision. The photos and the short film we directed feel very much like home to us.”

Spacehack Mural for Facebook

A few months ago we were approached by the kind folks at Facebook, asking if we’d be interested in creating a mural for their offices here in Seattle. It sounded like heaps of fun, so we signed up. They gave us a few keywords that represented the culture and atmosphere at Facebook. ‘Making The World More Connected’ and ‘Hacker’ got the most votes internally, so we dug into those ideas as our direction. Inspired by Ben Barry’s in-house postings, we based our piece on combining both thoughts – the idea of going beyond the ‘world’ being more connected intrigued us. Facebook existing outside of planet Earth seems like an attainable goal, so that’s where we landed. Once again we worked with our friend Don Rockwell on the application of the mural and it turned out pretty spectacular. See our quick and fun ‘Making Of’ film below:

Woodland Tales Redux

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a nasty surprise if artist Stacey Rozich‘s latest collection is anything to go by. The American may have eaten something she shouldn’t have in creating Within Without Me, her re-examination of folk myths and their power to explain, unsettle, and generally scare children half to death. Instead of picnicking teddy bears or hookah-puffing caterpillars, Rozich leads us into a world of animal-headed miscreants; her sharp, angular style perfectly suits the rather prickly modernisation of some old wives tales, and the forest relocation provides a colourful counterpoint to the urban menace of her situations. Motifs from international cultures also make an appearance, for example in the intricate embroidery of her craps-playing Bad Dudes’ costumes.

The Roq La Rue gallery, which any art-conscious Seattleite will tell you has moved to a spot on Pioneer Square, is hosting Rozich’s collection until 1st June, or you can see it all online (and buy the works as well) on the artist’s blog.

Building A Family

We were commissioned by our good friends at Toth Construction to produce and direct a short film documenting their rich heritage, high level of craftsmanship and the importance of building relationships. We shot this over a period of 2 weeks and used VSCO film emulation for the final edit. Music: “When I Am Old And Gray” by the Candlepark Stars.

Formubung 1.0

Our friends Klaus & Erik over at Toth Construction commissioned us to design a set of wooden architectural nesting blocks for their top tier clients this holiday season. Each hand-signed and numbered set includes a sliding laser-etched Russian birch wood lid and 19 individual sugar maple blocks. Special thanks to Jonathan Cowles over at Patronus Design for meticulously handling the production of each set. We also collaborated with Rachel Brandzel to create hand-made letterpressed cards to accompany each box. Oh, and do yourself a favor by perusing one of Toth’s latest works of art, designed by Jim Olson.
