Product Design: Enviably beautiful ceramics from Brooklyn’s Workaday Handmade

I like to think of myself as a manly man, a man that other men look up to respectfully for my skilful ability to hew trees into windproof shelters, wrestle animals to the ground in a humane fashion and grow a thick, luxurious beard from my chiseled face. But in spite of all these enviable skills I still admire the disconcerting ability of a master potter to turn what is essentially a lump of mud into beautiful household goods. Look at Forrest over at Brooklyn-based Workaday Handmade. This guy’s capable of turning his stash of mud into exquisite pots of glorious azure blue and fruit bowls with swiftly-but-skillfuly-rendered geometric patterns. Not only that but each one of his pots is made-to-order in an edition numbering one. Quite frankly it puts my animal wrestling to shame.
