Thomas Bohle is an extremely talented ceramicist and artist. I can’t remember how I came across his work but I glad I did. The precision and exactness creates a minimalist silhouette only to reveal some amazing details in texture and execution. The drip glaze looks like it is alive and still moving but gladly frozen in time. I love the combination of matte and gloss, it is a perfect juxtaposition of textures.
I typically don’t post a lot of modern HiFi here on Plastolux but there was something about this piece that I really liked. The Wren HiFi M1 Console represents a type of rebirth or reinvented console from the past. I like the combination of materials, the black white and wood work so well together. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into one of these units. This updated design has all of the modern audio features that we use today. There is a long list of features that I will not post here so make sure to jump over to their site if you are a audio junkie.
Collection Particuliere has an impressive collection of modern objects and furniture. I appreciate the exploration of combining different materials. Natural stone in different types add a sense of heft to the objects and are used to anchor some. The SUMO coffee table caught my attention with the integration of two materials it is visually pleasing. I also like the embedded fruit bowl, the lattice work lets the viewer see what is in the bowl without having to look into it.
I was recently invited by Bosch and Dwell to participate in a summit to discuss the evolution of the modern kitchen. The first night started with a beach side dinner as we got to know the good people from Bosch and Dwell along with the other attendees. The next day was full of discussion and learning.
Galerie Kreo produces and showcases original work by Contemporary designers in a different rage of mediums. I came across their website and was instantly drawn to their “SHOWS”. The displays that are produced to highlight these designers are quite pleasing to look at and probably even better in person. The statement “operating like a ‘design laboratory” dedicated to research” is consistent with the term “Contemporary designers” as the designers are experimenting as they design.
I recently discovered Jeremy Briddell Pottery and was taken with the shapes and textures that he has achieved. The groupings are amazing, as a group they create a larger work that has more of a presence. All of these pieces could stand on their own but there is something about grouping. I love the textures and colors that are represented, I can only imagine the years of testing and experimenting it took to coax the glazes to do what he wants. Make sure to visit his site, there are plenty of pieces to wrap your head around.
