Minneapolis-based designer John Foster created a magnificent cocktail table, which will make your guests take out their cameras once they enter you living room. His one-of-a-kind “Sparkle Palace Cocktail Table” table is a magnificent fusion of glass and light reflection.

John Foster and his wife, Teenuh, have been longtime collectors of self-taught art and vernacular photography. Their collection of anonymous, found snapshots has toured the country for five years and has been featured in Harper’s, Newsweek Online and others.

“The only way for me to find this material is to look, and that means several hours each week bouncing from one cryptic idea and place to another. Like a walk in the woods where veering off the trail is encouraged, it’s no wonder I occasionally get lost, which is my ultimate plan. That is when I find the odd and beautiful.

Deep into the rabbit hole of visual objects, this blog is my curated attempt to highlight just a fraction of what I find and pick up along the way. I hope you look forward to my discoveries, which I present to you each Friday. Think of this blog as your weekend treat.”
