November in Washington DC
George Washington University has asked me to be the 6th lecturer in their annual Distinguished Designer Lecture Series. The event takes place Thursday, November 6th at 6:00 pm. Hope to see you there.
On the first day of wheel throwing class in college (many years ago) our teacher offered us a challenge. If anyone could throw a 10 inch cylinder before the end of the semester they would get an "A" and no longer have to come to class. Not being the most enthusiastic student, this seemed like a perfect opportunity. It took me 3 weeks to get my "A". What I didn't count on was that I really liked throwing pots, so I kept going to class. Earlier this year, in search of a hobby, I bought a wheel and decided to start making bowls. I have no idea where it will lead, but it's nice to feel like I'm back in college every now and then.
My latest design for Roll & Hill will be launching this year during Salone del Mobile. The project is called Fiddlehead. It's form is inspired by the budding fern of the same name. The pendant and cantilever versions will be on display at Spazio Pontaccio. Please come check it out.

Recent Press - Vaga
If you haven't come across Vaga, the beautiful new fashion and arts magazine yet, you should keep an eye out. You won't be disappointed. For issue #4 they asked me to speak with style curator, Natalie Kates. The result was a beautiful 8 pages spread with a very thoughtful interview. Thank you very much to everyone at Vaga.
Every now and then I read about a model describing the suffering endured to make a beautiful photograph. I never had much sympathy, until we started shooting images for Daydreams mirrors. Photographer Jeffrey Schad and I have shot in the rain at the crack of dawn in Colorado (I had to fly home to New York that afternoon with wet shoes), we've shot while standing in the ocean as high tide came in (eventually filling Jeffrey's waders with 40 degree water) and we've shot in the woods in two feet of snow. The latest shoot took place on the beach on Long Island. The images look like a beautiful summer day. In reality, it was so cold, I couldn't feel my fingers for an hour after we left. Maybe models do have a difficult job?
Milan Furniture Fair 2013
The Milan Furniture Fair is just weeks away (April 9 - 14). My latest lighting designs will be on view with Roll & Hill at Euroluce (Hall 13, Stand G02) and at Spazio Pontaccio in Brera. I am most excited about the additions to the Mini Endless collection, which now includes a custom-made brass ball joint for connection sections together at virturally any angle. Daydreams will be on display at Skitsch.
The Kent Sofa for The Future Perfect
My newest piece of furniture, the Kent Sofa, designed for The Future Perfect is now available. Made entirely from natural materials, the design references both mid-century and traditional American upholstery as well as Shaker woodwork. The image below is the very first sofa off the production line. It can be seen at the newly opened outpost of The Future Perfect in San Francisco.
New Installation - Hostaria del Piccolo
The largest Endless installation we've made to date was installed recently at Hostaria del Piccolo in Venice (the Venice in Los Angeles not Italy). Working with Architect Gregory Ginter, we created a single, 100 foot fixture that weaves from one end of the restaurant to the other. Individual tables are lit by four Mini Endless lamps. Thanks to the guys at Piccolo, Vittorio Viotti and Bobo Ivan.
