In the Studio with Aaron Poritz

Furniture design, when you’re doing it right, should feel a lot like art. Every line, considered. Every surface, thought out. Elevating materials like wood and stone to another realm in such a way isn’t easy, but it’s exactly what Aaron Poritz does. There is rhythm in his tambour cabinentry...

The Interrogator with Nicola Collie

Nicola Collie is, you could say, a sculptor of space. She moves swiftly and with purpose, carving air with lean arms, slicing through the world with capable legs. Her dances straddle the line between elegant and feral. There is a toughness to her, one that belies the delicateness of...

The Interrogator with Nicholas Newcomb

It is difficult to say why handmade ceramics, with all their imperfections, have had such a resurgence in the last few years. You could suppose, though, that it’s one of many small, subconscious responses to the increasingly non-tactile world we find ourselves in. Today, we check ourselves out at...

In the Studio with Shinji Murakami

Those of us of a certain age will remember it clearly: sitting in front of a tube television, our young reflections trapped in its thick curved glass, fingers moving furiously over the rudimentary plane of a controller. In the right hand: red buttons, A and B. In the left:...

The Interrogator with Helen Levi

Brooklyn-based ceramicist Helen Levi deals in the kind of perfect imperfection that is wholly aligned with the aesthetic of today. Each piece, made out of her light-filled industrial studio in Red Hook, is unique and bespoke. Lines waver, paint drips, colors meld. Levi’s work is the antithesis of mass...

At the Table with Night + Market’s Kris Yenbamroong

In some ways, Night + Market seems inevitable. Kris Yenbamroong, its chef and founder, grew up in the kitchen of his family’s restaurant. Talesai was sleek, sexy, upmarket–a place Yenbamroong’s father, then a banker, could bring his banker friends to. It was a Sunset Boulevard staple that, at its...

SIXTY Takes on John Cheever’s “The Swimmer”

In John Cheever’s classic short story “The Swimmer,” his protagonist, Neddy, uses his neighbors’ pools to swim his way home.
