INSIDE: not neutral
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 1/15/2008

SAL: It’s been a while since we’ve written about anything about ceramics. Can be hard to get inspired, but I’m really digging these cool espresso sets by Not Neutral from Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
Very Naples-stazione-centrale-circa-1972. Love it!
They also come stacked in a lovely box - great for a gift.

INSIDE: mr paul

HARRY: I am loving all things Thomas Paul at the moment. Velocity has a bunch of his stuff. The tray (below) is made from melamine and it’s only $18. I also think the lacy gothic plates are fantastic. It jumps on the lace trend without being too girly.

INSIDE: re-use, reduce, recycle
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 11/13/2007

HARRY: I’ve posted before on re-used ceramics. Such a clever idea to reinvent all that old china we see on the shelves of op shops. I was looking at the NYT’s style section and they had a wonderful black tea set by UK designer Christine Misiak. She was part of 100% Futures at London’s 100% Design this year. I love her work. She takes modern and vintage pieces and reworks them. Very chic. And nicely green at the same time.

INSIDE: a touch of gold
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 10/23/2007

HARRY: How lovely are these? In an interesting pairing redstr/collective and Tobias Wong took the Alma Fortune cup and saucer and added a lush lick of gold. They were inspired by the age old tradition of Tasseography, Turkish coffee fortune telling. Here the coffee grains are replaced by 22k gold. Very decadent.

TRENDS: into the menagerie
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 8/31/2007

SAL: OK, OK, Harry’s telling me I’m going too woodsey. So, enough! Here’s a return to some urban chic - yet still inspired by nature ;-). A friend put me on to these wonderful ceramic animals by Jonathan Adler that I just had to share. I particularly loved this turtle box, what a delightful discovery and a perfect place for trinkets. Coincidentally, Domino magazine’s Editors Picks for this month was on a similar theme, check out the slideshow of zoologically inspired whimsy, my favorite - the Macaw resin lamp from Arteriors Home.
