by JESSIE ZECHNOWITZ
The term “Art Deco” originated in 1920’s Paris, and is short for “Arts Décoratifs” – so it follows that the style is all about DECOration, decadence, and adornment. One of the most fashion-forward embodiments of the Art Deco genre is jewelry, a medium where the tenants of fine craftsmanship, geometric patterns, bright colors, and precious materials all come together – voilà! We love the era’s taste for glamour, and we have some stunning vintage Deco pieces on offer that will have you feeling like an absolute Modern Woman. ART DECO DIAMOND RING Pull out all the stops with this platinum bit of decadence! Like mythological Andromeda (translating... Read More

IN THE GALLERIES

July 2, 2018
by Jessie Zechnowitz
July is the final month to see the current exhibits in our galleries! Both artists on view celebrate incidents of “defeat” or “imperfection” as meaningful insights into the subconscious. Accidents are kismet. Failure is victory. On view in LA, John Sheppard’s revolutionary ceramics subvert typical ceramic tendencies by eschewing the realms of sculpture and pottery.

His wall hangings possess a spare, modern sensibility that evokes elemental vibes by showcasing fissures and crackle glazes paired with metallic, bone, and obsidian hues. Sheppard’s embrace of wabi-sabi aesthetics is... Read More
