Objects are Storytellers + A TED talk

February 06, 2014

This TED talk popped up on my radar and it struck a chord. While Modernism has its place and the style influences the creation of so many beautiful things, I feel it can hold object creation hostage. Objects are storytellers and have been throughout history. With every object I create for Unurth, the aim is to tell a little bit more of the story between ourselves and the earth- to create useful, yet evocative objects.

What I love about those pieces are they were completely done intuitively, encompassing a macro and micro lens on natural phenomena. It was the precursor to the Multiverse style that has evolved this year and one of the first where I really started using the ceramic surface as a canvas.
