"We take a design and production approach that blends both the technical and the organic," declares Mazama (@shopmazama), a collective of six craftspeople in Portland, Oregon, that produces a variety of ceramics by hand and shares the process on Instagram. "We take our inspiration from those studios and the people whose love of their craft was what fueled their commitment to creating." "We all have a creative background, ranging from industrial design to fashion and interior design," says Casey Keasler, one of the studio's artists. "We were all on Instagram with personal accounts, so it only seemed natural to have a Mazama account." Instagram gives Mazama a way to share everyday scenes from around the studio, and photos and videos of the creation process cultivate a deeper appreciation for their craft. Casey explains, "It's been a wonderful tool to share our ceramics and the process with a wider community." To see more photos and videos from the Mazama studio, follow @shopmazama.

On Sunday, the 2014 Winter Olympics officially came to a close. Over the past two weeks athletes from 88 different countries competed in Sochi, Russia, before thousands of fans. Spectators and athletes alike captured some of Sochi 2014’s finest moments, from The Opening Ceremony to life in the Olympic village and from the events themselves to, finally, the Closing Ceremony. The Closing Ceremony celebrated Russia’s rich artistic heritage, with references to Kandinsky and Chagall, music by Rachmaninoff, Rubinstein, and Vladimir Horowitz, as well as Ballet from the Bolshoi. As the games came to an end, Sochi officially passed the torch to South Korea for 2018.

The Association of Surfing Professionals (@ASP) kicks off its Samsung Galaxy 2014 ASP World Championship Tour Saturday in Australia's Gold Coast. The world's best male and female surfers will take to the water to compete for the highest scores from judges considering level of difficulty, innovation, variety, speed, power and flow. Whether you're attending the Quiksilver (@quiksilver) and Roxy (@roxy) Pros or simply getting a surf session in with friends, keep these tips from ASP photographers Kirstin Scholtz (@kirstinscholtz) and Kelly Cestari (@kc80) in mind: Early morning and late afternoon are the most magical times to shoot surfing. Nothing will end a water session quicker than a leak; protect your water housing from any possible damage. Build a good working relationship with the surfers so they trust you not to ruin their wave and you trust them not to injure you. Shooting from behind the wave can make the face look steeper and the wave bigger; shooting from above makes it look smaller and flatter.
