"I've always loved vessels & pots and I was lucky enough to study ceramics at Alfred University, College of Ceramics, in upstate New York. But I fell in love with metal after finishing school." —Babette Holland
The material used to build their fixtures are made from aluminum and is handspun — think of throwing a pot, sideways, and the motion of spinning resembles a slow rocking dance. The shapes are so complex they can only be made one piece at a time, by hand, and by a master spinner.
They are finished with wonderful, rich colors with great depth and yet, these are two elements that you haven't seen together before. The new finishes are tints that have been developed in house and are made to have the depth and multi—color look and shimmer of dupioni silk. The color radiates from all angles and light affects it so beautifully.
