Wow, 19 days is a long time away from home. We were in China, Bali and Vietnam. The good news is that my Wanderloot meetings went really well and I have some exciting product news to announce.
We will be showcasing a gorgeous ceramics line from emerging Chinese design collective, Spin. Based in Jingdezhen, China’s porcelain capital since the Song Dynasty (960-1279), these young designers are reviving the ancient qualities of Jiandezhen porcelain: white as jade, thin as paper, clear as glass, sweet-sounding as a chime.
Best described as “simple, elegant, organic and fluent”, Spin makes artful porcelain ceramics with unexpected, often Japanese-style touches, handmade in Jingdezhen. The items are limited editions.
I’ve been a big fan of Spin for a couple of years now, and I couldn’t be happier to be one of the first US companies to bring Spin Stateside.
The website work continues. I am hoping to launch Wanderloot by the beginning of August. More exciting product news to come….
