Bowls, Platters, and Dishes by Up in the Air Somewhere

opener061209bowl.jpgWe stopped by the Renegade Craft Fair last weekend in McCarren Park in Brooklyn, and Susan Dwyer's work was, hands down, our favorite. The School of the Art Institute of Chicago recent grad's handcrafted pieces are ethereal and affordable, and I'm still thinking about them a week later. More pics after the jump...

Her booth was decorated with tiny white fabric shingles, and was a piece of art in itself. We didn't buy any at the time because I live in a 400 square foot apartment and am usually getting rid of stuff, but we've since made an exception. You can see more at upintheairsomewhere.com, and, lucky for me, order there.

The Gold Lip dishes range from $64 to $12. The glaze is all food safe.

The Gold Bottom dish is $32.

The pitches range from $38-28. The yellow comes from a process in which she hand dips them in rubber.

The fade vessels are also made of papier-mâché, from recycled paper. Since they're water resistant, they're perfect for a plant. $36

The Gold Paper bowls are also made of papier-mâché, and have a hand gold leafed interior. The large is $34, small is $18.
