Visarute Angkatavanich (Thailand)
Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich captures some of the most elegant portraits of fish. His intimate, crystal-clear photos of Siamese fighting fish (betta) make it seem as though they are suspended in air instead of water. Angkatavanich recently told Popular Photography that he only started photographing the fish after encountering them for the first time three years ago at a fish show and has since become obsessed with the different species which vary greatly in size, shape, and color patterns. Limited edition prints of his work are now available through La Lanta Fine Art. (src. Colossal) © All images courtesy of the artist

The Acacia Honey Dipper is part of the collection of “Objets-Bijoux”. “Acacia” is the result of research carried out by its designer, Miriam Mirri, into the sweet world of honey. Her studies led her to design an object suitable for use with all of the different kinds of honey on the market. “Acacia” captures and serves the honey thanks to its unusual shape, which comprises a spoon and a facetted ball. During the design stage, Miriam Mirri was inspired by the structure of the honeycomb, evident in the hexagons on the ball.
