We met Laurie Rosenwald about 10 years ago via our friend James at the delicious Manhattan restaurant, Prune. Shev and Laurie shared a cab home from dinner, and we’ve been in touch ever since. We are thrilled that Laurie is debuting her glass collection “Melty Jewels,” at Placewares.
Made by Laurie at her studios in NYC and Gothenburg, Sweden, these bold and whimsical objects take Laurie’s widely celebrated graphic work into three dimensions.
