ABOUT THE ARTIST:
At once rooted in tradition and embracing of new design languages, Studio ANANSI explores the beauty of blackness through collectible objects that deftly harmonize simplistic form and complex tactility. Debuting with a cohesive collection of bowls, platters, vessels, planters and a
stool, Studio ANANSI presents a unique perspective on the history of black culture and craftsmanship.

Meeting at the intersection of art and design, each piece is made from wood – chosen for its tactile and yielding nature – and revisits traditional craft in a thoroughly modern way. After being hand-turned, the sculpted objects undergo a specialized burning process that results in an appearance that manages to be both fluid and static, and one that intentionally conveys the struggles, events, love, loss, pain, suffering and – above all – beauty that the black body endures.

“This collection is the first in a series intended to explore countless
expressions of African diaspora and blackness through functional art
objects. Their simple forms are rooted in African art, reimagined
through a process that results in a textured, sculptural and vulnerable
beauty that represents a visual narrative currently underrepresented in
the world of design.”
