A French Potter at the Wheel in New York

December 6, 2013

Sixteen years ago, French artist Eric Bonnin made the leap from Paris to New York City and has since worn many different hats, including working as a potter for Jonathan Adler. Bonnin currently turns his own wheel in his Tribeca studio, turning out functional and elegant heirloom pieces. Kam, his latest collection, is a complete table service, from plates, cereal bowls, and cups to pitchers and trays. 

It can be ordered directly from Eric Bonnin Ceramics. Select pieces are also available from retailers Mociun, March, and Spartan. All pieces are made to order and take 2-3 weeks to deliver.
