Double The Cool with Kelly Lamb's Multi Purpose Ceramics
Modern lines, multi purpose, and manufactured by hand. Kelly Lamb’s collection of ceramics and candles aren’t just cool – they’re on fire. Working across disciplines, the LA-based artist creates geometrically-informed pieces that enact a dialogue between angular lines and organic shapes – many pieces, designed to do double duty. Ever is a candle inspired by Kelly’s favorite moments that can be reused as a bud vase or planter. Whether as a gift or a shot of cool for your interior, here Kelly tells us how she keeps cool while creating objects to burn for.
WHAT’S THE COOLEST THING ABOUT YOUR COLLECTION?
The coolest thing about my production line is that we do all our manufacturing in house. This means I can have an idea one day and then my team and I can work together to flesh it out in a relatively short amount of time. It’s so exciting to be able to see the development of a creative idea through to the final product where it takes on a life of its own.
IN HIGH SCHOOL YOUR CERAMICS WOULD HAVE BEEN AWARDED…
Coolest for sure.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO COOL OFF?
A dip in the ocean and hibiscus margaritas!
WHAT’S THE COOLEST THING YOU’VE DONE RECENTLY?
The coolest thing that happened lately was that I got to ride an elephant! A famous photographer was shooting some friends of mine and he had an elephant on set. I was lucky enough to be able to hang out with him and take a ride! He is such a gorgeous animal!
