You last saw her work in Dwell's April Indoor-Outdoor issue in the form of her playful Fedro seat for Dedon.

Ceramic Designer We Love: Jeff Nimeh

Relocating from New York to Kyoto, Japan in 2012 not only marked a new beginning in his life, but proved to be a working catalyst for ceramicist Jeff Nimeh.

Nippon absorbed, we can't wait to see what the former New Yorker will present next.
