WHITE DIRT produces limited-edition functional objects derived from unique sculptural forms by San Francisco-based founding artist DANA HAREL.
Consistent throughout each WHITE DIRT collection is the artist's embrace of the inherent quality of materials and the techniques she employs for their transformation.
For her first collection, Dana fashioned crudely constructed paper-and-wood molds—a skull registered at the base of each—inside which she poured plaster. Once the plaster dried, she then carved and refined her cured original forms before translating them into porcelain vessels, working with a skilled local fabricator.
WHITE DIRT objects are designed for everyday use, and yet each piece maintains the allure of art.
