Hello, drool, I love you. To paraphrase the words of the erm, immortal Roxette, the news that the work of witty US ceramicist Jonathan Adler is now available on our shores, and in fact in Dublin, is very good news to my ears.
It’s a word that’s far too over used but Adler’s pottery pieces are iconic: over-sized chess pieces, fluted, shaped bowls, vases and objets all done with a big dash of great good humour, his brand is fun, pleasingly retro but never tipping over into a trashy kitsch that hearkening back to a previous era can so often result in.
Find the brand at Maoliosa Murray‘s new store within a store at Minima on Hanover Quay. Before Christmas, she trialled a popup at Ebony and Co on Upper Fitzwilliam Street and Minima’s her new home for all things nice. With a selection of accessories and furniture pieces in stock, many more can be ordered in from brands like Jonathan Adler, Bethan Gray (beautiful tables) and Matthew Williamson among other covetable names.
Check my Adler picks from the store and then tell me you’re not drooling – and imagining spots for them in your own home. Because hey – I know I am.
