Knock Knock

We created this suite of hardware for SA Baxter in 2007 and even though it has been a commercial success, it never really had much time in the spotlight. So, we thought we would share it with
you again.

Referred as Suite 5900, the design features a unique human modernism. The basic form is a spare geometry, but the grip is an imperfect stack of discs. The effect is slightly romantic and they feel great in hand. It's amazing what a little misalignment can do. People have told us they look like they are wrapped in leather, or a stack of coins. The design is the perfect compliment to SA Baxter's manufacturing capabilities. Their brand-new upstate New York foundry produces an exceptionally high quality product.

On my way to meet a friend at Yunnan Kitchen on Clinton St. (yum) I passed this smart little SUMMER display featuring two of our white pigs and one of our new Coil Rope Bowls in the window of JNRL X STR.

X-Rated Reality

Well, almost.

First I got this from my friend, Adam Raphael, who photographs all things young, beautiful, male, and half-naked. As much as I love my Banana Bowl, it just sort of feels like its in the way.

And then Laura Young from Areaware sent me this "mistake" from the printer.

Again, if I was art directing I might ask for "less pig," but as I said, it was just a happy accident.

I wish I had a nice dirty third image to round out this story, so let me just put it out there that we are accepting submissions.

What a way to start the new year.

Guyton, at last

It took me four tries to make it to the Whitney before the 1/13 closing of Wade Guyton's show but I did it, and I celebrated by having a drink of water from one of my Guyton/Walker glasses.

Wade Guyton is a very interesting artist that uses digital print as his medium. He delights in all of the technical glitches and misprints the same way that an abstract painter would delight in the drips on a canvas. I love his work. 

The glasses are from a collaborative project between Wade and Kelly Walker. They were used at the gallery opening and then sold off as art. The simple stock glasses are printed with a silver, distorted grid pattern.
