To dwell (verb) is to stay or live in a particular place or state. A dwell (noun) is a slight regular pause in the motion of a machine. The Dwell Collection — a set of five ceramic home-decor pieces designed and handmade collaboratively by ves.studio’s Jeanette Adrienne Wee and Bynd Artisan — is our interpretation of the current world’s need and yearning for stillness and being-ness. In the pairing of two disparate materials, ceramic and leather, there emerges a deep sense of harmony.
Individually, the ceramic is made with Stoneware clay, handbuilt or wheel thrown into character, and fired with a unique white glaze — its strength and beauty forged in patience and surrender. Meanwhile, the vegetable tanned leather lends tactile comfort and a simultaneous boldness to each piece. Together, they culminate in a timeless collection — cup, vase, tray, planter and platter — that transforms poetry and philosophy into form and function. That breathes lightness and a feeling of well-being into the spaces and moments in which you dwell.
