I've been getting my hands wet and manicures ruined with refinishing wood lately, here's the newest selection of Jens Quistgaard's designs for Dansk in teak.
And an absolutely gorgeous rosewood salad bowl with tongs from the Rare Woods line by Dansk. Available in my store.
Robin Hopper footed vessel in his signature mocha diffusion technique.
This is one of his signature shapes so I was very excited to find it. It led to a surreal moment at the Gardiner Musem (ceramics museum in Toronto, if you haven't been yet, you should!), where we both exclaimed that the Hopper piece we have at home is so much nicer than the one in the permanent collection. This does not happen nearly as often as it should.
Theo and Susan Harlander plate, ca 1960s. They were one of the most famous couples working in studio ceramics in mid-century Canada. This is one of the earlier works as you can see from the toned down colours.
To continue with the Canadiana theme - an amazing Lotte lamp that I hadn't seen before. Already in its new home. And then some iittala Arkipelago candlesticks for good measure.
Roger Guerin art deco lamp base - this is admittedly not what I usually buy but sometimes I'm drawn into a project, in this case trying to figure out who designed it. Kevin from Bit of Butter was generous with his time and knowledge and shared that this is made by the Belgian ceramicist Roger Guerin. The mark, according to Bonhams, dates it to circa 1930. This lamp would look gorgeous in an arts and crafts home.
