Becky Shea, founder and innovative director of NYC-primarily based interior style and design agency BS/D, identified Catherine Dix’s work throughout a pre-pandemic sourcing vacation to L.A., at Gardeshop, her go-to place for “the most unique objects.” Produced from quite a few stonewares (crimson, white, brown, and black), the piece is meant to seem crude and imperfect, claims Shea, a self-explained ceramics aficionado. “It’s a piece of sculptural art.”
