A gallery-inspired design showcase of one-of-a-kind, limited edition and new-to-market home fashions, accessories, hand-crafted objects and original works of art are being presented at the California Gift Show by Editor At Large in an exhibition titled California Bespoke July 19-25.
Each item was hand-selected by Editor at Large contributors Jennie Nunn, Vanessa Kogevinas, Jason Oliver Nixon, and Marisa Marcantonio.
A few of the companies featured in California Bespoke include:
Bauer Pottery Company of Los Angeles manufactures Bauer 2000 pottery styled after Bauer vintage American pottery, Russel Wright's American Modern® line of dinnerware and gardenware under the Home by Sunset™ banner. As an accent in the yard, center- piece for a table or elsewhere ‘round the house, the new Garden Orb (featured below left) will be available in three sizes.
Caleb Siemon Glassware features the Chaos Wrap Pendant (featured below right) which uses a chaos wrap over clear or metalic crystal. Differences in melting temperatures are exploited to create a textural and bulbous surface. The wraps create unique and dynamic shadows on the surrounding environment. Handblown, signed and shaped in lead free crystal by Caleb Siemon and made in Southern California.
Tina Frey Designs of San Francisco are designers and makers of a collection of useful everyday objects and jewelry in resin available in a variety of delicious colors around the world. The pieces in the collection are hand sculpted by Tina Frey. Sculpting starts with an idea that is cohesive with the rest of the collection. Inspirations for the designs come from many things: The shapes are inspired by organic forms in nature and objects found in travels around the world. Featured is the medium pedestal in pink.
