I am still recovering from the all the hullabaloo from NYC Design Week and the frenzied weeks leading up to the main event. After getting several solid nights of sleep, I am still regrouping, putting the studio back together and getting ready to start the next projects that had to remain on the drawing board for this round. In the meanwhile, I have gotten the chance to take photos of my work and update my webpage. To see what all the fuss has been about click HERE.
The Model Citizens NYC 2010 show was a complete success and really distinguished itself as an breakout-independent alternative to the ICFF zoo. My deepest thanks to the amazing people that worked so hard to make it happen! There has been lots of buzz surrounding the event, and bunch of some articles can already be found at: Core77, Inhabitat, Design Glut, NOTCOT, and Metropolis
I am planning on posting a lot in the coming weeks. I am taking a break from the shop and going to Providence and Boston for final critiques at RISD. I am also very much looking forward to checking out the RISD Graduate Exhibition, the RISD Glass Graduate Thesis Show AND the RISD Glass Senior Show. I will be bringing my laptop to download some of my thoughts amassed while pulling together all of this work.

Hello Everyone! I am pleased announce that I will be showing all (very) new work at Model Citizens NYC next week (may 15-17) during NYC Design Week and ICFF.
This is the second incarnation of Model Citizen NYC and, I have to say, I think it is going to be a phenomenal show. MC-NYC is organized by my dear friend Mika Braakman, who has really out done herself this year. I had the chance to visit the space at Hosfelt Gallery last week and it is absolutely gorgeous (and across the street from the Javits Center).
This years show will be featuring over 40 artists and designers from all around the country and the world AND will be host a small pop-up-shop stocked with a small assortment of curated production. I will be selling two small production runs, including the acorn-pods shown above.
In addition, I am thrilled that a bunch of old friends will also be showing work including: Emily Rothschild & Tom Weis, Brendan Ravenhill, Virginia Griswold, and GRAIN Design.
I will be looking forward to catching up and seeing their latest and greatest! If you are in the NYC area next week you must stop by and say hi!
