There is almost no worse way to start your morning than by finding that one of the most important people in your education is having their work ripped off and marketed by some bullshit ceramic fakes factory in China.
Love the totally accurate photos of the supposed Chinese ceramics factory, too.
You can visit Jeff Campana’s actual Etsy page CampanaCeramics, and his blog and website here. His work is incredible, it has taken years to develop, and it’s worth reminding everyone that buying knock-offs and mass-produced crap like this hurts artists in more ways than just financially.
As the Great Depression descended, dance marathons were all the rage in America during the early 1930’s. Ann Lawanink holds her partner, Jack Rirof as he sleeps during a dance marathon at the Merry Gaedon Ballroom in Chicago, May 29, 1930. There are eight couples and one single left on the floor after 1,145 hours (that’s 47 days) of the marathon. We don’t know who won.
