Shou Sugi Ban is the ancient Japanese art of torching timber as a way of making wood less susceptible to fire and keeping away insects and rot. The technique provides a weirdly beautiful alternative to traditional timber cladding. Once the wood is scorched, you wipe it down and seal with linseed oil. Low maintenance, long lasting, slightly eerie.

3. Bloody Mary
More light lunch than mere cocktail – this version made me want to head for the kitchen. And the photos are gothically gorgeous.

  1. No? To the tea?! What the hell’s wrong with him? Is he sick?

    I was just reading another post on a new book entitled Put The Kettle On about the Irish people’s relationship with tea and then saw this little cartoon and laughed.
    The book states that the Irish drink the most tea per capita of any country.

    Off to brew up on the heels of this little cartoon character’s faux pas 🙂
