"Summer's Hottest Home Trend Is Spot On:
Paint-spatter prints in candy-colored hues make their mark"

 

 

Yesterday our Bud Vase in Confetti was featured in Architectural Digest Magazine as being on trend for this season of splatter!

 

To celebrate, we've updated our seasonal shop with this wonderful little vase that adds a perfect splash of fun to any room and is perfect for displaying a small bunch of flowers or a single stem.

Nathaniel Mell

 

This past winter we were lucky enough to be visited by a bunch of new friends from The Center for Creative Works.  Using our unglazed plates, tumblers, trays and bowls as their canvases, these terrific artists painted wonderful imagery of landscapes, portraits, favorite animals, flowers, some colorful abstractions and so much more!  All these works are set to be auctioned off at the Out the Door: Art Party and Auction on Thursday, May 24th from 5:30p-10p.

 
 

The Center for Creative Works is a unique work environment with a goal of developing creative work potential and cultural identity for people with intellectual disabilities.

Creative Works combines supported studio art development with work opportunities-including supported employment options – and community programming. Participants learn and work in drawing and painting, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, textiles, design, music and other media. A staff of mentor artists teach professional materials and techniques, with the goal of developing participants as artists, artisans, and designers. We foster individual expression and skill development, promoting our artists’ work through public exhibitions, art fairs, and other events in the community.

 

Felt+Fat Goes to Venice!

Nathaniel Mell

For our exhibition at 'Food Design Week' in Venice, we decided to think about excess through the idea of material waste. In our studio we are always working on new ideas and testing colors in clay. Unfortunately, we often make test batches of clay that go unused. After months of atrophy the liquid clay, or 'slip' as it is technically referred to, will often separate into a thick, lumpy clay and a thin layer of water. We dredged out the thick portion at the bottom of our buckets and - through a lot of trial and error - found that we could press-mold it into various forms from our production line. We decided to leave the work raw for the most part, with a simple glossy glaze lining the interior of certain pieces. The resulting wares turned our usually sleek, clean designs into forms that resemble crumbling architecture in bold solid colors reminiscent of historical Venetian pottery.

This work will be on display through the first week of February at the Palazzo Michiel in Venice, where we will also be contributing wares for a dinner with Anna Keville Joyce on the weekend of February 1st.

A Winter Reprieve

Nathaniel Mell

Felt+Fat is excited to announce that in 2018, we will be focusing on producing six unique and utilitarian sets for a range of needs, to be released throughout the year.

 

Our first set is filled with everything you need in a moment of liquid reprieve from the day. We've produced both a small and large version for either taking a break by yourself or for sharing this time with a friend. The wares are glazed in a limited edition and blizzard-inspired "Whiteout" glaze, featuring a matte surface mottled with glossy accents reminiscent of snowy winter days.

 

Feel free to fill your cups with coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever else helps keep the chill away.

Felt+Fat x John Souter

Terminals @ Canal Street Market

 

We are excited to announce the launch of our latest collaborative project; 'Terminals', an exhibition with artist John Souter. The show opens this Friday 11.10 in the Canal Street Market Artist's Portal and runs through the end of November, 2017.

 

John's work brings us back to our fine arts roots as he explores familiar Felt+Fat designs in an entirely different light, focusing on texture and form while removing any semblance of original function.

 

This collaboration is many months in the making and we can't wait to let you see it! Closing party on 11.29, details to follow...

For our latest collaboration Felt and Fat has teamed up with renowned ceramic artist and Philly local, John Souter.

Felt+Fat has wanted to collaborate with John Souter for quite a while.  Known for his wild exploration of form, surface and color within ceramics, John is a master of the materiality of clay.  Through a series of conversations and explorations done during studio visits as well as the use of Felt+Fat's forms, John has worked his muddy magic and developed some truly astonishing work!

 

 

 

 

Please join us Thursday, September 28th at Fjord to see and enjoy this colab along with great local food and drink.
