New York Ceramics Fair Spotlights Contemporary Feats of Clay

Unbeige - Mon, 01/27/2014 - 20:54

We asked writer Nancy Lazarus to throw herself into the New York Ceramics Fair. Here’s her well-sculpted roundup:

Rainbow Luster Bowl (2006), made by Haggerty Ceramics.

“With the resurgence now of porcelain and ceramics, it’s not old-fashioned love, it’s eternal love,” said designer Alexa Hampton, who was joined by fellow designers and ceramics lovers Kitty Hawks and David Scott on a panel co-sponsored by the New York School of Interior Design at the New York Ceramics Fair, held last week in the Grand Ballroom of the Bohemian National Hall.

Museum exhibits devoted to ceramics have also heralded the medium’s revival, including recent and upcoming shows at New York’s Museum of Art and Design and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Ceramics have a long history, alternately associated with ancient rituals, children’s crafts classes, and hippies, but haven’t always been perceived in high regard.

Ceramics are now recognized as a multi-dimensional art form, as the designers pointed out. “One of the beautiful aspects of ceramics is its deep, entrenched history of usefulness,” noted Hampton, adding that one can delve into ceramics in interiors or in doses by being a collector.

Both Scott and Hawks are ceramics collectors, and Scott described the pursuit of such objects as a compulsion. Still, he noted that not every piece has to be precious. Hawks agreed that provenance is not always necessary and said ceramics preferences and tastes can be quirky.

Stefan Bucher Creates Cellular Valentines

Unbeige - Fri, 01/24/2014 - 12:18


It’s January 24th. Do you know where your Valentines are? Swap those chalky candy hearts and flimsy greetings for a microscopic approach with “Love Cells,” a pack of whimsical Valentine postcards created by Stefan Bucher for Moo’s Luxe Project. Each of the hand-drawn designs is a pattern of tiny, almost-hidden hearts: lay out all ten cards to form one large pattern that can be rearranged into several configurations. All oroceeds from the $29 packs of sturdy postcards (with matching envelopes) go to ShelterBox USA. Says Bucher, “Their mission to provide shelter, warmth, and dignity to disaster and conflict survivors also comes with an edict to provide transparency to their donors, a value I hold in high regard.”

Designer Discord! Hoefler & Frere-Jones Split, Diller & Scofidio Clash with Tsien & Williams

Unbeige - Wed, 01/22/2014 - 19:05


Breaking up is hard to do, particularly when your design talent has put you firmly in the–shared–spotlight. So far, 2014 has been a year of schisms. The typographical team of Tobias Frere-Jones and Jonathan Hoefler have been divided by money squabbles after more than a decade at the forefront of the font world. Frere-Jones is suing Hoefler for “luring him to the company in 1999 with the false promise that they would be 50-50 partners,” according to The New York Times.

Meanwhile, the paper of record devoted a swath of a recent front page to the fractured friendship of architectural power couples Ricardo Scofidio and Liz Diller, and Billie Tsien and Tod Williams, who have fallen out over the former’s advice that the Museum of Modern Art proceed with the planned demolition of the former home of the American Folk Art Museum. Architect Henry Smith-Miller compared the fallout to “Greek drama.”
