We are pleased to present a new collection created especially for us by Chicago ceramics artist Anne Carnevale. Anne has created several custom sculptures for our interior design projects and we are very excited about this new venture.
More about Anne in her own words -
"As an artist, i believe an object tells a story.
My work is inspired by functional objects that have been present throughout history- a cup, a plate, a spoon, a water jug... timeless, clean and simple. Traveling in the mediterranean as a child, i became acutely aware of the handmade in the region. Its architecture and artifacts awakened an artistic sensibility that has shaped my life & work.
I create sculptural vessels that are, like the human figure, unique and one of a kind, changing from every view point. Art pieces that are made to be held and used. Objects that aesthetically enhance the everyday moments of life. The vessels are coil hand sculpted, a technique that reaches into antiquity and predates throwing on a wheel. The simplicity of hand building artistically stands out in a world that is striving towards mathematical perfection- where the human imprint of the creative moment is hidden or lost.
For me, the imperfect line, the off-centered object is the art.
