HOW IT’S MADE:

ACRYLIC OBJETS

My work in acrylic is a reaction to my work as a potter. Clay is magical and moldable, but sadly it has its limits. I always wished clay could be more translucent. Enter acrylic. Known by its brand names (Lucite, Plexiglas, Perspex) acrylic has always tantalized me. For years, I was on the hunt for a workshop that could balance my dedication to quality craftsmanship and my desire for ethereal, glowing, objet.

And then I found one…

Here’s how it’s done:

We work with an incredible acrylic workshop that takes our design from solid clay to sublime acrylic.

MEGA MESMERIZING SCULPTURES

Oversized and perfectly provocative, they announce the presence of a glamorous eccentric.
The scale is big enough to fill an unused corner or let it rule your cocktail table.

Acrylic Hippo

It all started with the hippo.

I created our Brass Hippo and I loved it— but it was only 11” long and my cocktail table was begging me for more. So I cranked up the scale and cast it in solid acrylic—and then it was on. And now, we have produced an incredible array of twinkly, trippy pieces from oversized noses to poppy pills.

I’ve always been drawn acrylic objets—from mid-century to new wave, from Dorothy Thorpe’s weightless candlesticks to David Hicks’ fabulous furniture to Shirley Ritts’ (who is the late-great Herb’s mother) 1980s acrylic glamour.
