Smartphone Art

Often times I realize I am creating smartphone art. My personal belief is art which contributes to daily life enhances our state of minds and our ability to remain open minded. I very much like the idea that art can function to assist us in our daily lives.

I’ve created smartphone art cases using Barely There cases in three different case styles. The Barely There model is a light weight case includes a slim profile. The Tough includes a shock absorbing flexible liner. And the Tough Xtreme includes a super tough liner as well as a screen protector.

I think smartphone art could say a lot about those that choose them. If you are a carefree soul you could use a whimsical design such as my Blue Cat painting. Or for those who are on the edge my Abstract Pipes mixed media case could be a reflection of who you are.

I’ve tried to use my most appealing art and photography for these and other smartphone cases I have available. I’m creating more cases each day. I also have smartphone art cases for other iPhone models.

I would be remiss not to let you know about more iPhone 6 cases available at They have a featured page called the Pop-Up Shop as well as their iPhone 6 case Marketplace. I hope you feel compelled to bring a bit of art in your daily life even if it is just smartphone art.

Pink Floral Tea Cup

A thrift store find is this pretty delicate artifact I call the pink floral tea cup. If you remember from my forays into a thrift shop last year, I discovered a Lefton China Tea Cup and wrote about it too. Another cold day and I decided to venture to find another china cup to photograph.

This pink floral tea cup was made by the Bawo and Dotter company of New York who then opened a manufactures plant in Limoges, France in 1892 calling themselves the Elite Works company. Some of the china can be dated by the color of their mark. Between 1900 to 1914 their mark was red and between 1920 to 1932 the company also used green. This particular cup’s mark is red. The matching saucer not pictured includes a green stamp.

Lovely Detail

This photograph is a close up of the lip and cup itself. You can see the small white and pink blossoms (apple?), small yellow centers and small green leaves. All hand painted on a white porcelain, it is remarkable that it was created prior to 1914. The gold rim shines for its age. These cups I find are a reminder of a different time. Socializing revolved around a daily ceremony with food and tea, face to face with others with no distractions from electronics.
