Potter, designer and author Jonathan Adler launched his namesake brand after leaving his day job to pursue his first love: pottery. In 1993, Barneys bought his collection of pots, and five years later, he opened his first store in Soho.
Today, they are a design company with retail locations worldwide, a thriving e-commerce site, a full slate of residential and commercial projects, and a global wholesale business. We strive to create luxe and livable interiors that are seriously designed, but don’t take themselves too seriously.
More than just a pretty face, our Dora Maar Pedestal Bowl is poised to dazzle from every angle. Inspired by Dora Maar, the French photographer, poet, and painter best known for being a lover and muse of Pablo Picasso.
Jonathan throws the models for the Muse vessels and then substitutes our signature geometric relief patterns with body parts—faces, breasts, lips—to create a surreal style. Each piece is inspired by our favorite artists' muses.
