When I was little this was the sort of pottery you’d expect to see in charity shops, the sign of a design aesthetic rejected. How times have changed, the tide, turned. What was generic is now confident, what was old fashioned is nostalgic and what seemed ugly is now defiant and most importantly, appealing.
There’s a company that’s drawing from this feeling and adding their own signature: Kat Huffer and Roger Less, work partners and life partners based in Northeast Los Angeles make up Kat and Roger. Their aim is to combine classic shapes and graphic surface patterns with earthy natural clay textures.
These are mugs you want fill with hot tea and hold between two hands on a freezing winters day.
These are heart singers and obsession inducers.
Laters, Kate x
