For the American Design Club's recent Trophy: Awards We Live With show we were excited to present a new piece that came together through the craft and expertise of our new Bainbridge Island potter friend (and fellow RISD alum) Terry Siebert.
Here is the official description:
"As we grow older, our victories become harder to identify as singular events, becoming a blurred accumulation of wins and losses. Stamped with symbols of past, present and future acts - both triumphant and habitual - our vessel reads like a life well lived. Taking formal cues from ceremonial cups, our piece serves a more conventional function as a cooking vessel to be employed at feasts with family and friends. When used in this context, stories emerge around the table as the icons trigger memories and aspirations."
We were so happy with how it turned out that we are working on a way to add it to our line as soon as possible. Above and below are a few photos from our first product testing where we made a cassoulet for our friends Eric and Zanna Gewirtz!
Huge thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair last week in New York. We officially survived our third year!
Above and below is a view for those who weren't able to make it. We had the same booth as last year but decided to pump up the color a little with denim blue cotton paper "shingles" that we stuck up with packing tape the two nights before. Pieces on display include our Hitch mirror, Hook, new textiles from Guatemala, Dish side and coffee tables, Stick candle holders, Stitch mirror, and Strung sconce for Standard Socket.
We're launching a whole new collection next week at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Above and below is a preview. Everything should be up in the shop shortly. Huge thanks to our friend Charlie Schuck for the beautiful photography and to Rima Suqi for helping us to announce it all this afternoon in The New York Times.
