■ a day in the life 11.04.2014 - 13:07 uhr

bastisRIKE was invited to take over the etsy instagram feed today/yesterday. we are still excited to be featured on etsy’s inspiring #dayinthelife series on IG.

i decided to show you the whole bunch of pictures i sent in. the large-sized ones are those etsy choosed for the series which is reduced to 5 pics a day.

My days start with a walk with Basti my dog and name giver for ‚bastisRIKE‘. During spring our way is dotted with petal confetti. It’s the best thing to start a day and to wake up fully. And if it doesn’t help: Back at home breakfast and coffee is already waiting, prepared by my bearded man.

Baking is my kind of meditation if work gets too stressful. Besides the bakeries around our home are sadly quiet bad. So every couple of days there’s a bread dough growing. And if there’s just a small amount of time my favourite choice is the famous #nokneadbread.

Every now and then, depending on the order situation, i have to restock my stamps. This means cutting, mounting and applying matching labels on top. Not a creative part of my work but it helps with sorting thoughts and ideas.

Two sources of inspiration. Photos made with my old nikon and even more important: the bearded man pictured together with Basti. He’s by my side since almost 14 years and I cant imagine a life without him. He’s my best friend and the man i love.

oh beautiful dandelion … since ‚dandelion wine‘ by ray bradbury became my alltime favorite book i like it even more. since a few years in spring my mom gathers its blossoms to make liquor. perfect for a Magenbitter after a big homemade dinner.

APRIL 2013

some shots from a filmrole i shot through april. my camera showed some age-related weakness through the last weeks but i hope it’s just some kind of a hiccup …

an old candy and toy vending machine. it’s weird but in this small district you can find them at almost every corner … i should start a collection …

APRIL 2013

april closed with sunny days and a concert visit in cologne. motorpsycho played and even if we saw them nearly every year through our relationship (~ 13 years) they made my heart leap again and again. perhaps there’s an interrelation …


looking back april has been a strange month. still I can’t get rid of the feeling to ‚drive‘ through the year with brakes on … so last weeks time-out has been much needed. even if it has been some kind of a forced shut-down. i spent it in my parents house, the place of my childhood. lots of green, lots of sun, two dogs, a pair of running shoes … no internet … more on that another time … perhaps


▫ love maria’s photos from the wonderful general store in san fransisco

■ mouse hole 4.03.2013 - 14:40 uhr


basti has to wear the collar again. while playing he injured his dew claw. the second time in a few months. for now he doesn’t know he has to go to the veterinarian this afternoon. if so this poor boy would hide in a mouse hole if he could.


i would like to join him in this small, warm and cozy hole for some days. there are things frightening me so much those days so i would like to hide, dissolve myself into time and space.

for now i don’t know if it is kind of calming to notice everything seems to go forward as usual while your own world is shaking. but i’m glad to see the sun out there, i missed her and i try to remember my own words: everything will be is alright

bastisRIKE: winterSTRUKTUR

for sure i couln’t ever be a food-blogger. never ever. i’m so impatient and can’t wait to eat instead of making good looking photos. and who want’s to look at plates with crumbs as recipe reference? hm, perhaps this could be a nice and funny blog project, for sure something like this is already out there?

anyway, i found this one food photo between all the wintery structures: my beloved rootbread.

bastisRIKE: wurzelBROT

some of you asked for its recipe, so here it comes. (note: as you will notice it’s a slow-food recipe):

rootbread (3 loaves)


160g wheat flour (1050) (you can replace it with spelt-flour (1050) if you want)
160ml cold water
3g salt

stir together and place it covered with foil at a cold place (fridge) for at least 12 hours.

main dough:

580g wheat flour (550)
80g rye flour
360ml cold water
8g fresh yeast
2 tablespoons vinegar

mix those ingredients with the starter-dough. knead the dough for 4 minutes (kitchen machine on lowest speed)

add 12g salt and knead it for another 5 minutes (kitchen machine on speed II). let it rise for 12-18 hours covered with foil
at a cold place (fridge).
place your dough on a floured work surface. leave it covered with a damp cloth for 40 minutes to become ‚warm‘. after this
fold the dough from top to down and from right to left and cover it with the damp cloth again. repeat this step 3 times every
10 minutes.

divide the dough in three parts. flour those parts and your hands and twist both ends of each piece against each other to get
the root-like look. leave them for another 20 minutes.

place a bowl of water in your oven and preheat it to 250°c. bake the bread for 5 minutes and remove the bowl. after another
15 minutes reduce heat to 200°c for final baking. it should be golden brown in the end and if you’re unsure if its done knock
on its underside. it should make a hollow sound.

we love to eat it just with best butter and some sea salt on top. let me know if you tried this recipe and if you have any suggestions!
