Love this new material from 3Form. Part of their Full Circle Product line. Here’s the story of Full Circle.

Full Circle product development really starts with understanding the capabilities of the community.

Ndem, Senegal feels special. There is a preservation of craft here that is quite rare to other communities. Our job is to find a marriage between the look of these traditional crafts and contemporary patterning that is desired today.

We have to look at what raw materials they have available, what skills they possess and how they are combining these two things in order to ideate about new products. more

My friends at Object Lesson featured this Steuben bowl today. Steuben was America’s premier crystal and glassware maker of the early 20th century. This is the Zodiac Bowl made by Sidney Biehler in 1935. At 16″ in diameter, this is a great size for a decorative piece on a mantle, shelf, or table.
