manifesto

For years I have been wanting to write a manifesto - and I will (just probably not before 2010).
In the meantime, check out the Repair Manifesto from Platform 21 - a truly innovative design collective in Amsterdam. Here are some ideas that we try to follow as we work (especially number 4). Click to enlarge.

Sunday Times (we are in it!)


The New York Times has an article this Sunday about spending 36 hours in Cincinnati. Guy and I just recently moved to Cincinnati permanently, taking the job as head of the Ceramics Department at UC, College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning. We are so happy to be here, even if it means thinking about how Non Fiction has to function across a 100 mile stretch of I-71. The Times did a great job of scouting out the city, and mentioned our favorite design shop High Street in the article. For a sneak peek, look online here. It seems like lately I can't say enough good things about this area and I am glad others feel the same.

big plans

After cleaning out the studio last week, we found a LOT of pieces that have never seen the light of day. This hanging light from our show at The Clay Studio is pretty amazing - and a nice addition to our room. I love living with what we make, even if it is the one offs and strange ideas that not everyone sees.
We have been talking over the last month, and have some radical new ideas in the works that we let you in on shortly. Big plans for the future of Non Fiction - and our own personal art and research as well.
Close up of the the wolf chandelier - made from a salvaged metal lampshade - truly a one of a kind piece. The centerpiece is from the first rapid prototype of Wolfie that we had printed.
