An A+ for Adler.


Adding “writer” to the long list of Jonathan Adler’s talents, I have to share with you his wonderful description of the Malm Fireplace, which he wrote for yesterday’s T Magazine in The New York Times: “When I am making a piece of pottery, I know that it’s finished — and that it’s good — if it looks like it’s supposed to be that way, like it’s been uncovered rather than created. To me, that’s a Malm fireplace. And I like that it’s democratic, not precious. At its height of popularity, you were as likely to see one in a mobile home as you were in a groovy modernist manse. Those who dismiss these beauties as a bit of ’70s nostalgia need to look again.” Read Adler’s entire essay for T Magazine.
