Deirdre is so good she so has me inventing a new acronym. AYOSAT Yet?

SOFA New York, the 13th Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fair, opens on Thursday, April 15 at the Park Avenue Armory with a splish-splash charity evening to benefit MAD. MAD not MADD. New York's Museum of Art and Design. Not everyone will know, this show is not exclusively the domain of pots, but by golly there will be some good ones there for the taking. SOFA continues through April 19th.

Amongst the myriad of wares on display, we were delighted to discover that Galerie Besson had commissioned a selection of new items, crocks, we shall call them, from one of our favorites, supreme ceramicist, Deidre Hawthorne. Galerie Besson's been one of the great champions of her work, featuring Deirdre at their gallery in London and now New York. It's essential that you check her stuff out, so let me say your day at SOFA NY will not be complete if you do no amble over to the Galerie Besson, booth, #308.

Deirdre is so good she so has me inventing a new acronym. AYOSAT Yet?

Anyway, back in the thick of things at the show, I guess we'll be looking for something to replace the recently fractured Jonathan Adler Soap Dish. I know it was one of his later-on, Peruvian manufactured items, but oh the green glaze... It is not easy to make soap look good.
