Recently we came across the work of several emerging artists who are currently showcasing their work at Cocobolo Design gallery in New York City. Each artists works in various mediums, however most of them are masters with clay and porcelain. Right now there are 5 artists on exhibit, each with unique perspectives.
Shizue Imai is a master at transforming clay into earthy and modern sculptures that have an ancient feel. Despite the rustic, natural elements to her work, each piece maintains classical elegance.
Colleen Carlson has won numerous awards for her woven sculptures that use various elements to create a ‘form & fashion’ inspired collection.
Stacy Cushman is another artist that focuses on combining earthy and modern into one piece that fits various styles of homes. She focuses on recreating aspects of sea and water. These glazed porcelain objects could work in a traditional country house, as well as a contemporary penthouse apartment.
Cocobolo Design Gallery is located on Chrystie Street. They’re open to the public, Monday through Friday, by appointment only. S. B. Long Interiors style is “modern traditional” – that’s why Cocobolo appeals to us so much!
