Marfa Comes to LA
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
When Heath LA's studio director and potter Adam Silverman visited Marfa last summer, he found himself in the remodeled adobe home of artist couple Jamey Garza and Constance Holt. The three discovered a shared design DNA, inspiring Silverman, who has partnered with Heath for the past four years, to put together Heath's newest show, Marfa Amigos. The occasion marks another first. After years of custom work, Garza's furniture and Holt's textiles will now be available to the public. (Holt designed a patchwork dining table for Chez Panisse's 40th anniversary, and Garza has provided furniture for southwest hotelier Liz Lambert .) Marfa Amigos runs through May 6 at the Heath Los Angeles Studio & Showroom and includes wood pieces by Pat Keesey, posters by El Cosmico, and soaps from Marfa Brands. For more of Silverman's pottery, see his work at Atwater Pottery and at the Man-Made Show at Bakersfield Museum of Art. Photography courtesy of Heath Ceramics .
