spotlight: bukushuns by djenya

I have never in my life "ooh-ed" out loud over bookends until I spotted these. Are they not the cleverest little things you've seen?

I'll just leave it to Djenya, the artist, to describe:

"Bukushuns - or Book Cushions - are hand-made ceramic bookends that look like soft little pillows. They are filled with sand and sealed, making them heavy enough to hold up your entire library. Can also be used as door-stops, paper-weights, or simply as decorative sculptures to put on your shelf."
