Featuring a project by Placewares' gallery artist Jim Isermann. This is a limited supply out of print book.
From Jessica Stockholder's subversive meditation on the suburban home, to Chris Burden's quasi-legal "small skyscraper," to Barbara Bloom's dislocating architecture (unfeasible, save through future technologies), to Kevin Appel's ambivalent homage to modernism, Trespassing: Houses x Artists breaks through the conceptual boundaries that have historically divided art and architecture to describe new strategies of conceiving private space. In their individual collaborations with architects Alan Koch and Linda Taalman of OpenOffice, nine contemporary artists radically reinvent how domestic space is created and inhabited. The resulting works are open-ended, representing a rigorous new approach to visualizing form rather than a final product or conceptual destination.
The first time we tasted SQIRL's jams - Seascape Strawberry and Rose Geranium - it was nearly a religious experience. It was a lazy morning at The Sea Ranch, and we spread this ethereal jam over some rustic bread. We were instantaneous devotees.
Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles makes their jams in copper jam pans using traditional techniques from the 1500's. Organically farmed produce, fair trade organic sugar and no commercial pectin.
Size: 8 oz.
Ingredients: Certified Organic Blackberries, Blueberries, Unrefined cane sugar, Lemon JuiceView full product details
Heavy enough to stop a door (or flatten your pickles)
Pound is a doorstop or paperweight that was inspired by traditional Japanese pickling stones. Picking stones have to be heavy enough to hold down a pickling barrel's lid. We're certainly a fan of a good pickle, but in reality ours is destined to hold a door open here at The Sea Ranch, Placewares' home on the 'breezy' Sonoma Coast.
The Pound's surface is a smooth granite stone with a rope hand strap.
Each Pound stone is unique and one-of-a-kind. Made in Kagawa, Japan.
