WEBSITE OF THE WEEK

JONATHAN ADLER

What's not to love about Jonathan Adler, gay jewish potting misfit, his life reads like a Will and Grace script... only sweeter. He is more than enough to rekindle anyones love for ceramics even those scarred by the memory of Moore and Swayzee gettin' busy at the wheel. And his work is way cool. A man after all our hearts, with a manifesto that includes such words of wisdom as:

We believe that your home should make you happy.
We believe that when it comes to decorating, the wife is always right. Unless the husband is gay.
We believe in carbohydrates and to hell with the puffy consequences.
We believe minimalism is a bummer.
We believe handcrafted tchotchkes are life-enhancing.
We believe tassels are the earrings of the home.

My brother(bless his cotton proverbials) bought me my first Adler (above) for Christmas last year. No doubt that if we ladies of hml make it to NYC next march we'll be heading straight for Barneys and adding to the collection, toot sweet.

You have to love him for the pants/thongs colour coordinate alone. I read his website and cacked myself. Wish he lived in Melbourne. I would hunt him down and cook for him.
