Kat + Roger

March 2nd, 2014 / by Kali Hays / no comments / permalink

Since we seem to be stuck in a never-ending New York winter, the custom color palette California ceramicists Kat+Roger designed for us is definitely causing daydreams of a warm beach by the ocean.

The duo (in work and love) throw, detail and paint each of their ceramic pieces by hand. And though they look pretty enough for mere decoration, don’t be afraid to eat, drink, be merry and then put everything in the dishwasher. If you stare long enough at the blues and greens maybe you’ll start to feel like you’re here…

Hasami Porcelain

Hasami bowls and trays as dinner service

Hasami bowls and trays as dinner service.

Sometimes utility can be dull, cold, uninteresting, synonymous with boring. But being functional and classic shouldn’t mean any of those things, something Hasami Porcelain understands.

Oak wood lids or trays or serving plates

Oak wood lids or trays or serving plates.

Hasami’s colors are neutral but warm and all of their pieces are simple in design but executed to perfection. Each ceramic piece and oak lid or tray is crafted by hand in Japan, but from a fixed model, creating stacks that look good enough to show off.

Open shelves never looked so good

Hasami cups, mugs, bowls and lids out and proud. Open shelves never looked so good.

Bringing up the function level another notch, all of the porcelain is safe to put in the dishwasher or microwave. So, beautiful as they are, these pieces were made to be used.

Vibe’s

December 6th, 2013 / by Kali Hays / no comments / permalink

     Inspired by the fairy tales of  Hans Christian Andersen she loved in childhood, Lene Vibe’s jewelry evokes a feeling of enchantment and excitement. Growing up in Copenhagen, where she still lives and works, she spent much of her time exploring wooded areas and daydreaming of being a character in her favorite stories.

Vibe's

     With 18k yellow gold she carves rings and earrings with flowers and snails set with white, grey and cognac diamonds and Keshi pearls. Visions of Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, The Last Pearl, The Butterfly and The Snail and the Rose Tree all come to mind when looking at her jewels.

All crafted by hand without sketches or preconceived ideas of what she wants to create, Vibe’s pieces are moments in time and imagination that can be worn forever.
