What is your name?David AgnewWhat have you done for us lately?One of the great perks of being a copy editor is that even while I’m working, I get to learn about new subjects every day. Sometimes it’s architecture and design, and other times it’s forest management or blockchain, but there’s always something to appeal to my curiosity.If money were no object, what would you buy to cheer up your decor after a long winter?Hard to choose just one thing, but I’d really love one of local artist Zachari Logan’s Eunuch Tapestries – a series of massive pastelon-black-paper wall hangings packed with intricately detailed vegetation. It would be like having a picture window looking out onto my own private garden.What is your name?Amrit PhullWhat have you done for us lately?The four…

Ai Weiwei: UnbrokenTo Jun 9Ai Weiwei is one of the few artists as celebrated for making ceramics as he is for destroying them. Take his 1995 photo series Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, which captures the Beijing-born human rights activist letting go of a 2,000-year-old ceremonial vessel. Or his mesmeric 2010 landscape Sunflower Seeds (shown), made from millions of meticulously hand-painted porcelain husks, produced over years by workers in rural China. Both are on view as part of a sweeping exhibition at the Gardiner Museum. “Ceramics are fascinating,” says Ai. “I love the tradition, how people for generations have tried to make something happen with this basic language of communication besides its practical uses.” His recent takes on Chinese blue and white porcelain, for example, depict scenes of refugees in…

Kate MacNeill, the dynamo talent behind Concord Custom Lighting, a new Toronto design and manufacturing studio, got her start cutting, bending, threading and welding custom luminaires at Commute Home. “At that stage,” she says, “I had no experience with electrical or metal working at all.” That changed when Yoki Milke, who now runs his own lighting studio, Milke Bau, began mentoring her in Commute’s busy west end workshop. She’s a quick study: within five years, the PEI native and graduate of Humber’s Cabinet Making program went from tinkering with wire sockets to coordinating complex lighting orders with local shops and fabricators. “I would be taking a drawing and figuring out the sum of its parts – essentially building myself an Ikea kit. When all was said and done, there might…
