Dwell on Design recently came through Los Angeles. Catering to Interior Designers, Dwell had at once a great mixture of Design, Architectural Materials, and Design Craft. Several trends stood out- Color Pop, Minimal Geometries, Playfulness, Material Juxtapositions, and Patterns (when they happened they made themselves known!)
For me, the most exciting part was meeting with some great ceramicists and seeing a peek at where Unurth can go. As a step up from the curated craft shows, this felt like it was one foot in the trade show camp, one foot in the retail camp, both with a focus on high quality craft and design.
A few of my favorites are below!

Gracious and gorgeous ceramics, emblazoned with iconography from everyday life.It was so delightful meeting her in person after having admiring her work and path for so long! Her advice>> Keep at it!
Handful of Salt + 100% CA//
Handful of salt is a new publication focused specifically at the intersection of craft + design + art. It is so refreshing to see this directly addressed. This intersection has always been the most exciting for me and where I chose to focus my own work. Their curated exhibit, 100% CA showcased California craft designers and the work was absolutely beautiful.

The Essence of Things: New Design from Norway//
Light and so exquisitely crafted, this work was both opulent and restrained. Take a peek through the blog and discover new amazing designers.

Handcrafted in North Carolina, this little company amazed with lovely tessellation tiles and flocked (yes!) ceramics,

Architecturally inspired jewelry intertwines gracefully with the chain. Gorgeous.

Thanks Citlalli, I did! They were both beautiful in person. I think the coolest thing, though was HAAND’s flocked bowls. I’ve never seen flocked ceramics!

It seems like you had a great time! I’m intrigued by Lisa Neimeth’s tableware and Haand’s ice cream bowls…granted, I’m not a big ice cream person, but those bowls are just too beautiful!
