Andy Shaw Tableware
Poetic, modern and quiet are words that come to mind when I think of artist Andy Shaw's collection for the home and table. Much like water seems colorless unless en mass, his glazes pool into the textures of the pieces giving just a hint of cool, glassy hue. While his creations remind me somewhat of Jonathan Adler's, there is something Wabi-sabi and soulful in them that separates them from other "west-elm-white-texture" objects.
Like his work, Andy is calm and approachable. If memory serves, I pretty much picked up and admired every piece, marveling at their feel in my hands, all the while asking him questions about his process and mission.
