Dear Jonathan Adler,
I love everything you do. Your style is fabulous!
But right now, I am totally in love with your Utopia line!
J.A has come up with a beautiful line of pottery that has 2 personalities.
The line has numerous great products. Mugs, Vases, Water Pitchers, Keepsake Boxes, and Candle Holders. My favorite pieces have one character on one side and a matching themed character on the reverse
Talk about getting bang for your buck!
I love them because they never get old. Just a turn of my Sideshow Vase (pictured above) and I’ve freshened up the place!
The pottery is produced by skilled artisans in their main workshop in Peru. The make molds from prototypes (which are hand sculpted by Adler and his team), then hand craft each piece from a high-fired stoneware or porcelain.
The great thing about the Peruvian workshops they use are that they were found through Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote fair trade
The pieces will run you anywhere from $24 for a mug, up to $575 for the largest vase (i’m saving!)
Sadly you can’t buy these on his website to ship to Canada (his only stores are state side)
I have found 2 places in Calgary that sell the pieces:
Both in the design district (next to each other)
They have a very few select pieces but the good news is you will be one of the lucky ones in Canada to own them.
Ohhh Mr. Adler, you may not have romanced my with flowers or chocolates, but I have been won over by your collection!
Mr .FAB – adler
