One of our favorite booths at Dwell on Design 2012 was BKB Ceramics, a company—well, an artisan really—based in Joshua Tree, California. From his home studio, Brian Bosworth crafts planters for cacti and succulents using rock or Styrofoam casts, a potter's wheel, and hand-construction techniques.
Bosworth trained as a sculptor at Claremont Graduate University but found himself drawn to ceramics about six years ago and began making his planter line as an extension of his sculpture practice. He started by casing molds of rocks and styrofoam, which then evolved into more abstract geometric and architectural forms, he says.
