Covet: Drip Vases by Brian Giniewski

Dipped Earthenware Vases At Gretel Home

These earthenware Drip vases are hand-made in Syracuse, New York by Brian Giniewski.  Glossy glaze, formulated in such a way that allows the artist to suspend it’s drip,  is juxtaposed against a grainy, matte finish of the vase’s body. Alluring pastel colors and earthy textures in sophisticated but not too serious silhouettes.

Covet: Coffee Set by Luca Nichetto + Mjolk

sucabaruca-mjolk

Venetian designer Luca Nichetto (who I met and spent the day with at Foscarini in Venice a few years ago), and the amazing gallery Mjölk in Toronto, Canada, have collaborated to create a beautiful coffee set called Sucabaruca.

The project involved many people from different cultures and countries: the owners of Mjölk, Juli and John, who collect and distribute products from primarlily Scandinavia and Japan; the Canadian ceramist Alissa Coe, who made the prototypes; Lera Moiseeva, Russian/New York designer and artist who contributed to the development of the coffee set in collaboration with Nichetto’s studios in Sweden and Italy; and Elena Freddi, collaborator at the studio in Stockholm.

Luca Nichetto + Mjölk Opening
January 22, 2014, 7pm—9pm at Mjölk, Toronto

Get the Look: Multicolor Dinnerware

I got an email this morning alerting me to the new and very colorful dinnerware collection by The Novogratz, now available at Macy’s (see #9). That’s Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the husband and wife design duo and parents of seven children, whose fun aesthetic has been the subject of an HGTV show and several collections for CB2. I’ve long been a fan of the CB2 Family rug, which is sadly no longer in production. (I’d kinda been thinking about using it in our Florida condo.)

The dinnerware would look great in an all white decor, which got me thinking, what other colorful tabletop patterns are available, if one were to extend beyond white or basic neutrals Here are 17 multicolor dinnerware options I found. I’ve always loved iitala Origo (#10), and Donna’ Wilson’s pink pastel (#4) is adorable, if you had the right Scandinavian inspired space. Would you stray from white for any of these?
