Boxes of glaze tests by Adam Silverman. “I decided I wanted to develop a whole new body of glazes because I’d been doing a version of the same thing for what felt like many years,” says Silverman. “The palette was inspired by the images of bullfighting hanging above it. The idea was, how do you convey that violent imagery and its weird beauty and savagery, all in a glaze on a pot? And of course all without then telling people that’s what you’re going for. So we made these glazes with super-aggressive crackle and textures. We did probably 200 tests to narrow it down to about five.”

I just finished this desk project I’ve been working on for the past month. San Francisco based furniture maker Jared Rusten let me use his shop and helped me with the construction in trade for some photography work I did for him. 

One of the goals was to minimize as many cables as possible in my workspace. The keyboard, mouse and Wacom tablet are all wireless and I selected a board with a knothole to route the iMacs power cable cleanly through the center.

The table top is solid 1 1/2 walnut and it’s beveled on the edge to make it appear thinner and match the iMacs sloping design. The base is a vintage Eames Aluminum Group piece. 

Super stoked on the finished project and a new clutter free desk.

My first photo taken with the new camera. Kit lens is pretty nice, can’t wait to see how the 35mm f1.4 performs.

FROM YOUR DESKS: Your desk resembles Prouve table; did you design it with that in mind?

GEOFF McFETRIDGE: No, when I built it with a friend of mine I did not know who that was. Michael Reisman is an architect and he built all my tables. The legs are Burro sawhorses, which are amazing. You can put 5000 lb on them or something… ya can’t do that with a Prouve table.
