Humid overcast morning by the reservoir in the Pennsylvania mountains

Lent my stylish husband @johndeason some things, including this vase, for a photo shoot for one of his interior design projects. I’d say he used it well! #cultureobject

A very Renoir worthy scene in the summer garden

Topiary inspiration? A trio of segmented balloon-like vessels and a calm meditation on form, part of a series of 15 black burnished vessels by Jeffrey Loura available on our website, link in profile #cultureobject

For a worthwhile summer excursion in Manhattan I recommend a visit to the venerable @randcompanynyc in TriBeCa to see the exhibition in their beautiful new tri-level gallery that just happens to include a dozen rare examples of mid-20thC Architectural Scale Blenko Glass that @james_zemaitis kindly invited me to loan as part of their 20-year retrospective. Included in the show is the elusive and uber-rare 5832 ‘Three-Part Epergne’ from 1958 by Wayne Husted, one of only six examples I know to exist and available for purchase, as are the others. The last time a 5832 was available publicly for purchase, in fact, was 2000 at R and Company at their groundbreaking single-owner Blenko exhibition that this presentation today commemorates.
DM if you’d like a personal tour.

Busy night last night at the opening of @artmarketproductions Art & Design fair in Bridgehampton where the bioplastic vessels of my designers Handmade Industrials was featured right at the fair entrance. Stop by this weekend to see! Link to work in profile #marketartdesign #marketartdesign #marketartfair #cultureobject

Cast resin ‘Seaweed Bowl’ by Australia’s Kate Rohde, perfect for grapes or bonbons at your poolside grotto or beach house #cultureobject

Two shows I recommend at @hellergallery right now; Toots Zinsky’s visual feast “Endangered Species” mimicking the plumage of endangered tropical birds in glass filament vessels; and Norwood Viviano’s worthy but perhaps too didactic visualization of sea level rise using glass objects. Both very much worth the visit.
