there’s not a color you can bring us that we can’t recreate. whether it’s azure, salmon, cyan, or burnt orange, your wood finish can be any color under the sun. (yup, even colors that crawl.) from pickling to bleaching, staining to lacquering, if you want a particular color wood or finish, there’s only one place to start.

From the Editor

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS TIME OF YEAR

MICHAEL FEIN

—maybe it’s the proximity of Thanksgiving and the annual New England Design Hall of Fame gala (see page 59)— that always seems to have me musing on, and grateful for, design excellence. This autumn, as it happens, I’ve also been reading a number of books by or about earlier decorating figures (most recently Billy Baldwin). And that conjunction, of annual talent survey and one-time historical survey, has me wondering if there has ever been a period when there was as much interest in home design as there is now. Not that there was a huge lack of interest before—otherwise the books I’ve been reading mostly wouldn’t exist. But still, the scale of things today seems different. Do a quick search on Amazon for “interior design.” Pull together all the shelter magazines on your neighborhood newsstand: international, national, regional, local, special interest. Check out the program listings for HGTV—yes, an entire network dedicated to homes and gardens, not to mention other shows on Bravo, TLC and elsewhere. Plunge into the hundreds and hundreds of design-themed blogs scattered across the Internet like orchids in a rainforest; browse the websites of innumerable fabric houses, furniture makers, paint companies, lighting consultants and . . . see what I mean? This cornucopia of style consciousness must, of course, be due in large part to the general level of affluence in the Western world, unprecedented in human history. General and generally distributed, that is: although we are frequently reminded that relative inequality is on the upswing in many countries, even the average style of life in those lucky places where anyone is likely to read these words still allows plenty of latitude for a concern with fashion and the amenities of one’s living space. And a corresponding democratization of the mass media allows us all to interest ourselves in topics and experiences that were formerly the province of only a rarified few. So the design tide is rising, and its waters are flowing even into the developing world. I’m curious about how much farther this trend may go. What do you think?

Design, Design Everywhere

Corrections and amplifications: We neglected to identify the artist whose work appears above the fireplace on page 125 in “Theatrical Sweep” in the September/ October issue. He is Frank Hodge, and his work is available at Studio 534 in the Boston Design Center. In Trade Secrets in the same issue, the truck Woodmeister Master Builders donated to the Be Like Brit foundation was the company’s own, not a UPS truck as we stated.

Elements The things that make great spaces

Edited by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz

Touch-Up Time There’s nothing like the annual Thanksgiving shindig to provide the impetus to get our house in order. This is not to imply laziness or an Oscar Madison syndrome. But when it comes to housekeeping, who among us has not practiced a little benign neglect every now and then? Inevitably, over the course of a single short year, a toss pillow is stained in one corner—the result of an over-zealous hand gesture while drinking a glass of red wine. A guest towel is washed once too often, a favorite set of sheets is beginning to fray. While the annual gathering is a good opportunity to get the things we’ve been putting off done, it is fueled by an even greater desire. An ordered house not only welcomes our guests, it restores us as well. Reason enough to give thanks. Mix and Match Joe Cariati’s hand-blown Angelic bottles can be lined up on a bookshelf, set marching down the center of the dining table or singled out to hold one perfect branch. Mix and match colors and shapes to personalize the collection. Shown, from left, flask in gray and amber; large in tourmaline, steel blue and plum; small in amber and gray. LARGE $285, OTHER SHAPES AND SIZES $195. COASTAL, NANTUCKET, MASS., (508) 228-4662, WWW.COASTALNANTUCKET.COM

Mill Goods, Harrisville, New Hampshire By Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz

We’ve been living, very happily, in the same house

for twenty-five years, but that has never stopped us from embarking on annual house-hunting expeditions. We’ve seen a couple of places that have really turned our heads, but we always come around to deciding that there’s no place like (our) home. Until this fall, that is, when we visited Mill Goods in the tiny town of Harrisville, New Hampshire. Granted, it’s a shop, not a house, but that didn’t dissuade us from imagining how it could be converted to a home. It might have been the setting. We are enamored with the gritty romance of industrial buildings from the mid to late 1800s, and the boiler house of an old textile mill where Mill Goods is located is a real charmer. It might have been the quirky assemblage of things in the shop: midcentury furnishings, art from the 1920s, taxidermy and repurposed

industrial objects give us a thrill. Or it might have been the contagious sense of excitement imparted by the proprietors of Mill Goods, Luke Kelly and Emily Eisen. (During their free time, Kelly writes children’s books and Eisen is a fashion stylist in New York.) In any case, we were seriously smitten and for a brief moment even discussed where the kitchen might go. Truth is, after our lovely, hours-long visit, we got back in our car and happily returned home. But we do plan to go back to Mill Goods often, where we’ll rummage through the intriguing inventory and fantasize about a bucolic life there. 6 MILLS ALLEY, HARRISVILLE, N.H., (603) 827-3039, HTTP://MILLGOODS.MYSHOPIFY.COM.

The Master of Love A visit with Robert Indiana, the internationally acclaimed artist who brought more than a little LOVE to every country in the world. BY ROBERT KIENER

the tony London-based Financial Times couldn’t get him to talk, claiming recently, “He rarely answers the telephone and assiduously avoids journalists.” But he had taken my call; admittedly only picking up halfway through the message I’d left on his answering machine, obviously screening callers. And, after some hemming and hawing, he had agreed to Clockwise from above: LOVE an interview.

he left New York’s pop art scene thirty-four years ago—I recalled a New York Times profile of the artist. The writer had described Indiana’s “cantankerous demeanor” and, sinking his barb even deeper, noted, “warm and fuzzy he is not.” The Times, I am happy to report, was wrong on both counts. He is warm. “Welcome. Please, call me Bob,” says the eighty-fouryear-old legendary artist as he greets me with a smile at the top of a grand wooden staircase in his art-filled Victorian home. And, thanks to a four-day growth of beard, he is very fuzzy. Indiana is best known for his instantly recognizable, internationally famous LOVE image, the colorful four-letter assemblage featuring the sideways-canted “O.” Since it first

As I quickly learned, the oft-described “eccentric” Indiana was notorious for not suffering journalists gladly. Even

Because he neglected to copyright the image when MoMA issued it as a Christmas card, he lost the chance to cash in on LOVE’s global popularity. Although he has re-created it as sculptures, in limited-edition prints and numerous other iterations, he admits somewhat wistfully, “I never made the millions of dollars from it people think I did.” Rising a bit from his perch to emphasize his point, he adds, “Most people know about LOVE, but only a few know I created it. ‘Robert Who?’ is what they ask.” After art-world critics lambasted him for “selling out,” he traded his loft in lower Manhattan for the three-story Star of Hope on Vinalhaven, a picture-postcard island that bills itself as “home to one of the world’s largest lobster fishing fleets.” He’s stayed there, as a self-admitted “semirecluse,” ever since. “As a child I’d always dreamed of owning a Victorian house with a tower,” he explains. “So this is literally my dream house.”

Exploring this virtual gallery with Indiana is awe-inspiring; it’s a walking tour through the creative life of one of the world’s most famous artists. “There’s a painting I did when I was six years old,” says Indiana as he points out a blown-up reproduction of a scene in crayon. “I never wanted to be anything other than an artist.” Leafing through one of the neatly-bound “life scrapbooks” that still inspire his work, he points out old friends (and enemies) such as Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Rauschenberg, Philip Johnson and many other creClockwise from left: ative superstars.

What he has called his “sculptural poems” (such as LOVE, EAT, HUG) and seemingly simple graphic images, are layered with meaning. Although he himself has come to terms with the label “pop artist,” Indiana has received wide acclaim for his varied body of work that has surpassed that of his former pop colleagues. Indeed, as one writer noted, it is “the depth of his personal engagement with his subject matter that distinguishes him.” His numerous awards, one-man shows, international commissions and the books written about him underscore that point. Indiana is painting only occasionally now and is busily preparing for several retrospectives of his work as well as penning a long-delayed autobiography. Meanwhile, he still delights in talking about his body of work and displays a wry sense of humor

Like Warhol.” • Editor’s Note We are very grateful to the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine, for the use of images from the catalog of their 2009 exhibition, "Robert Indiana and the Star of Hope."

oston’s Back Bay and Bermuda are 775 miles apart, but when a Bermudabased couple, whose daughters attend a New England boarding school, shuttle between their homes in each locale, the transition is practically seamless. Interior designer Ana Donohue transformed the 1,600-square-foot Back Bay pied-à-terre into a sophisticated, sun-filled space consistent with the look and feel of her clients’ expansive Bermuda abode. The most challenging aspect lay in the designer’s idea to turn the unit’s dark floors white. “Our contractor asked, ‘Are you sure? Someone spent a lot of money on these, they’re solid walnut,’ ” the homeowner recalls. She and Donohue stuck to their instincts. The sanding and bleaching resulted in a soft, creamy white, reminiscent of pickled flooring. Donohue says, “It’s a connection to Bermuda, but in an urban setting.” Dark gray walls provide a dra-

To add warmth, the designer evenly distributed amber-toned elements—a Foscarini pendant, a pair of curvy side tables and a Jonathan Adler burled wood desk. She considered upholstering a living room chair in a tobacco hue, but the homeowner demurred. “I didn’t want anything to stand out too dramatically,” she explains. Instead, artwork provides a boost of energy. Fine arts consultant Jacqueline Becker chose abstracts with slightly punchier oranges to pick up the color thread. In the girls’ room, where, their

Donohue worked in a zingy orange nightstand and a playful llama-wool zebra rug, and dotted the white bedding with fuchsia, green and yellow accent pillows. Everyone’s happy with the result. “It’s peaceful, modern, with a bit of an edge,” the homeowner says. “Exactly what I like, wherever I am.” • Resources For more information about this home, see page 147.

Then all six editors met to pick their own favorites—which we share with you here. Congratulations to the winners, and our thanks to all who participated. New England Home 1: Classic Master Bath This serene bath is in a historic, Queen Anne–style home originally built in 1894 for Gardiner Greene Hubbard, the first president of the National Geographic Society. A recent renovation by Boston’s Meyer & Meyer transformed an unused office into a dream bathroom suite: gas fireplace, heated Carrara marble floor, custom window seat, steam shower and period-appropriate whirlpool tub, all pulled together with a soft palette of white and blue-gray for the perfect marriage of comfort and classic New England design.

The winners for 2012 are John Day (architecture and interiors), Asher Dunn (furniture), Amy Aidinis Hirsch (interiors), Elizabeth StivingNichols (interiors and furniture) and Kelly Taylor (interiors). Stunning arrangements by Winston Flowers set the stage as guests sipped signature cocktails by Triple Eight Distillery, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres prepared by Davio’s and marveled at custom rugs designed by the winners in conjunction with Landry & Arcari Oriental Rugs and Carpeting. Amidst all the fun, attendees also showed their great generosity with robust bids during a silent auction of the rugs, with the proceeds benefitting Barakat, a Cambridge, Massachusetts–based charity that supports literacy and education for women and children in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The selection

committee for the 2012 New England Design Hall of Fame: Thomas Catalano, Julie Rogowski, Manuel de Santaren, Kyle Hoepner, Ted Landsmark and Kris Horiuchi

60 New England Home November/December 2012

Six years ago, the New England Design Hall of Fame was created to honor the work and careers of industry leaders who have made the most significant impact on residential design in New England. Since then, thirty-nine inductees have been named in the areas of interior design, architecture and landscape design, and in 2012, seven more worthy figures are being added to the ranks. Each year, as New England Home receives dozens of nominations from the region’s top professionals, the toughest part of the process always proves to be whittling down the list of entries to a final group of inductees. Tasked with making that difficult decision this year was a group of industry leaders from across the local design community. The 2012 selection committee included Ted Landsmark, president of the Boston Architectural College; Julie Rogowski, vice president and general manager of the Boston Design Center; Kyle Hoepner, editor-in-chief of New England Home, and three previous NEDHOF inductees: architect Thomas Catalano, landscape architect Kris Horiuchi and interior designer Manuel de Santaren. The judging process took place over many long hours at the New England Home offices, where the selection committee pored over the work of the talented individuals nominated by their industry peers. The judges considered a number of criteria when making their decisions, including the number of years spent in the design trade, mentorship of younger professionals, community involvement, other industry recognition and awards and—last but certainly not least—quality of work. This year’s inductees will be celebrated at a gala dinner and awards ceremony on Thursday, November 8, at the State Room in Boston. In addition, a tree representing each of the winners will be planted in the Hall of Fame’s “Living Legacy”—a grove of birch trees on the Boston Design Center’s front plaza. Congratulations to this year’s New England Design Hall of Fame inductees!

those communities better than they were.” Both developers and his peers have taken note of Beinfield’s ability to enhance an architectural landscape. In the past twenty years, Beinfield has been hired to complete roughly 200 residential and commercial design projects in Norwalk’s now-trendy SONO neighborhood, work that earned him an American Institute of Architecture Special Achievement Award for the leading role he played in revitalizing the area. “The goal of our work in SONO is to emphasize historic character, while at the same time adding a bit of an urban edge to the design of the apartments, condominiums, offices and restaurants of that neighborhood.” It’s a principle he’s also applied to similar projects completed throughout Fairfield County in towns like Rowayton, Saugatuck and Darien. As James Wassell, an architecture consultant who regularly works with Beinfield, puts it, “Very often in Bruce’s work, specifically in the facade, there’s some recognition of the existing context. His goal is to make both his clients and the house live happily in that context.” In 2010, Beinfield was elected to the AIA College of Fellows, the first architect from Connecticut to receive this honor since 2001. In their reasoning for the award, the AIA summed up the lure of Beinfield’s designs: “His work acknowledges the complex connection of myths and romance from which the American landscape has always been constructed, fusing contradictions to create places that nourish the soul and lift the spirit.” ROBERT BENSON PHOTOGRAPHY

Bruce Beinfield’s approach to architecture is one that, at first, sounds a bit at odds with his position as a leader in the design community. When Beinfield starts a project, it’s often with the end goal of blending in. “The biggest factor in the success of our firm is our ability to go into communities and build within the context of that community,” says Beinfield, who owns Beinfield Architecture in Norwalk, Connecticut. “We go in with a deep understanding of what the architectural roots are of the particular area, and then design buildings and homes that help to make

alike, and what differences they have tend to complement one another. “We both have similar interests and began our careers being heavily influenced by European gardens,” Doyle says. “More important though, we have different skill sets that enable us to run a smart business. When we have different opinions, we allow those differences to enhance our business. “ Their biggest commonality is their approach to landscape design, which is based on a combination of the architecture of the property they are working on, and the desires of their clients. “Our designs are rooted in responding to the clients’ programmatic needs, the site and the architecture,” Herman explains. “There must be a dialogue between the interior and the exterior. Without this, neither the house nor the gardens are complete.” At the end of the day, both also attribute their success to a deep passion for their work. “I have always had a love of architecture and the outdoors,” Herman says. “Creating outdoor spaces through architectural gestures marries my two passions.” Doyle echoes the sentiment unreservedly: “Being able to work in this creative field is truly rewarding.”

To say that James Doyle and Kathryn Herman are a formidable team is an understatement. Together the duo, who serve as co-principals of Greenwich, Connecticut–based Doyle Herman Design Associates, have accumulated a volume’s worth of accolades, only the latest of which is their induction into the New England Design Hall of Fame. Among their many honors: the Association of Professional Landscape Designers’ 2010 “Landscape Designer of the Year” award, spreads in national magazines like Elle Décor, and numerous Palladio awards, the most recent of which, earned in 2011, was given in honor of what the selection committee called “thoughtful execution and impeccable detailing.” The pair’s recipe for relationship success is one that’s tried and true: for the most part, their ideals and tastes are

Nannette Lewis knew she wanted to be an interior designer early on, when she was given an opportunity every teenage girl hopes for: free rein to redecorate her bedroom. “I had a chance to do my bedroom over however I wanted it—an experience that led me to take several courses at the Pratt Institute School of Art & Design during my senior year in high school,” Lewis recalls. “I actually studied something totally different in college, but I was hooked on design and I always knew I would pursue a career in it.” Now, Lewis is the successful owner of Nannette Lewis In-

teriors, a Massachusetts-based design firm responsible for some of the most beautifully decorated homes in the Northeast, more than a few of which have been profiled in the pages of New England Home. Her celebrated aesthetic is one that’s all her own; her signature style is eclectic, but pure. She prefers to mix periods and styles, “creating a connection between the pieces.” She favors simple and clean edges, comfortable furniture and linens and draperies in fabrics like cotton, all in palettes she describes as those her clients “will feel well in.” Lewis’s talents have gained national recognition in magazines such as House Beautiful and House & Garden, and she’s developed a loyal fan base of both clients and peers in New England. Charles Spada, owner of Charles Spada Interiors and an inaugural NEDHOF inductee, is just one of Lewis’s admirers. “In all of the many projects I have seen, her work is beautifully executed, her attention to detail is superb and her color palette appealing,” Spada says. “Her induction into the New England Design Hall of Fame is a welldeserved recognition of her talents and contributions to the Boston design community.” We couldn’t agree more.

Much of what shaped Lyman Perry’s viewpoint as an architect can be credited to his alma mater. “I was fortunate to have been accepted at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Fine Arts in 1974, at a time when Penn was the foremost architecture school in the country, and under the influence of Louis Kahn,” Perry recalls. It was Kahn’s philosophy of building structures in harmony with their surroundings—a method also shared by such famed architects as Frank Lloyd Wright—that resonated most with Perry, and has since governed his professional approach at his architecture firm, Lyman Perry/Hutker Architects (Perry joined forces with Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard–based architect—and NEDHOF inductee—Mark

Hutker in 2010). “The romance of this way of thinking inspired me to start using materials that were indigenous to each site I was given to design,” he explains. “Natural stone in the countryside, shingles at the seashore, metal roofs in the north for the snow to slide off.” While Perry may be steadfast in his design method, he also takes great care to fulfill his clients’ wishes. His goal with each project is to “exceed expectations,” a benchmark he’s been known to surpass with even the toughest of critics. “I was initially reluctant to use Lyman to redesign a rundown house in Chatham, Massachusetts, because of our longtime friendship,” says Roy C. Smith, who has known Perry since college. “But he had shown my wife and me his many projects on Nantucket over the years, so we were familiar with his way of settling a building so gracefully into its landscape, a result we wanted to achieve. When Lyman first presented his design we were delighted at how he’d managed to come up with something so ingenious and attractive. And, despite our longtime friendship, there was never the slightest difficulty between us in getting it built. Twenty-five years later, we still think it is a masterpiece.” LYMAN PERRY

switched desks and never looked back. Interiors for me are more fun than straight architecture, even more client-oriented and endlessly creative.” Now, Wells is the co-principal of Wells & Fox Architectural Interiors, a firm that operates successful offices in both Boston and Chicago. Wells runs the Boston locale, (she says she’s a New Englander at heart), while her business partner, Bruce Fox, oversees Chicago—though both are involved in projects in each location. While design styles in the Midwest and Northeast are different—“Right now we have more clients who prefer a tailored, clean line in Boston than at our office in Chicago,” Wells notes—she takes the same thoughtful approach to clients in each city. “What’s most important is that our projects reflect the aesthetics and lifestyles of our clients,” she says. Her client-oriented philosophy is one that is only enhanced by her talent, aesthetic and attention to detail. “Heather’s approach to design is masterfully thought out and cerebral, all the while paying close mind to scale and quality of product,” says David Webster, who, as the owner of Boston showroom Webster & Company, has worked with Wells on numerous projects. “Her work is always a delightful mix of old and new, culminating in a very pleasant, comfortable living environment. Plain and simple, she just gets it.” HENDRICH BLESSING (2)

Heather Wells, now one of Boston’s top interior designers, originally set out to be one of Chicago’s top architects. After getting a master’s degree in architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, Wells went on to work for a residential architecture firm in San Francisco before eventually landing in Chicago, where she became a licensed architect. While working in close quarters with an interior design firm there, she began to think she might have chosen the wrong path. “I worked at an architecture firm that shared space with an interior design firm, and I just loved watching what they did.” Wells recalls. “So when they were looking for help, I

Morgan Dix Wheelock was working as a successful mortgage broker at a large firm in New York City in the 1960s when a clash of sound morals and bad design led him to a career revelation. “I was sent to sell a $100 million shopping center in Texas to a major lending institution,” Wheelock recounts. “The company approved the deal on the condition that their name would be attached to the center. I discouraged them, saying that they really shouldn’t want to be associated with such terrible design. The [company] agreed, and the deal fell through.“ Though it might not have been the most lucrative career move at the time, it served Wheelock well in the long run. “I returned to New York empty handed, but with the knowledge that I was on the wrong side of design, selling junk instead of designing responsibly. So I quit and was off to graduate school.” Wheelock went on to earn a master’s degree in landscape

architecture from Harvard University, and spent the early years of his career at Sasaki Associates, working under Masao Kinoshita, a master landscape architect from Japan. Even after beginning his own firm, Morgan Wheelock, Inc., Landscape Architects in 1976, it is his apprenticeship with Kinoshita that Wheelock continues to credit for his “intuitive” approach to design. “My method is one of careful and quiet observation, intent listening, surrendering the ego, stepping outside of my internal dialogue so that I can feel the land. I am more the conductor who facilitates the dance between my client and nature,” he explains. Kinoshita’s tutelage has aided Wheelock’s success in other ways, too. When Wilson Nolen, chairman emeritus of the New York Botanical Garden, wanted to landscape his property on the Cape, it was Wheelock whom he called. “Morgan and I worked together on my garden in Cape Cod, which was an ongoing, multiacre project, the highlight of which, is, without a doubt, the Japanese garden,” Nolen says. “Morgan Wheelock is a remarkable person.” While Wheelock is quick to give credit to those who shaped his career, it is he who is now the influencer. Notes 2011 NEDHOF inductee Kris Horiuchi, “Over the past thirty-four years, Morgan Wheelock has set the gold standard for estate garden design in New England.”

very scientific experiment begins with a question, an attempt to cull answers from the unknown. Hypotheses are made, constraints considered, tests of validity run—and at any time, unexpected factors can alter the outcome for surprising results. • When it came to designing a home for two scientists and their children on an environmentally sensitive spot in a Boston suburb, architect Alan Joslin was faced with a question: can a 10,000-square-foot house made of stone, wood, metal and glass sit lightly on the landscape? • During the two-year design process, Joslin worked closely with the homeowners to craft a manmade structure that pays homage to Mother Nature. • The owners’ deep love of the outdoors, their vast collection of Chinese scholar rocks, a penchant for contemporary aesthetics and the need for the house to be equally suited to family life and formal entertaining all influenced the design. The site itself presented its share of challenges: a stone wall, a grove of ornamental trees, a wooden Chinese pavilion and a 100-foot-tall Cedar of Lebanon would all need to be preserved and integrated with the new structure. • The architect, a principal at Cambridge, Massachusetts–based Epstein Joslin Architects, took his design cues from the landscape features. The existing stone wall became the front elevation with the house set behind it and low to the ground. Roof lines play off the surrounding topography; one of the primary long slopes of the roof runs parallel to the front wall of the property, and Joslin

Joslin incorporated steel, wood and stained glass in the entryway’s ornamental stairwell, a design repeated in the screening to the dining room beyond. Facing page top: The house is a celebration of natural materials.

used that soft angle as a starting point for a series of shifts in the roof planes. “I love how the house empathizes with its setting,” he says. “To be able to live close to the beauty of nature is something we really care about.” The connection to the natural world continues inside, where plentiful windows let light spill into every corner, and walls, floors and ceilings of wood and stone surround contemporary furnishings in a predominantly earth-toned palette. Joslin used floor materials to delineate different areas: French limestone sits underfoot in main-level public spaces like the living room and kitchen, while the lower level sports concrete floors and wood anchors bedrooms, offices and guest quarters. Pocono fieldstone walls, echoing the site’s stone walls and underscoring the owners’ fascination with stone, contrast with oak and walnut accents. “We distributed those woods in different proportions throughout the house,” Joslin explains. “There’s more oak in the family rooms because it’s lighter, and in the formal areas there is more walnut. It’s almost like turning a lever between light and dark in the different environments.” Rather than vast panes of plain glass, windows bear a contemporary pattern of mullions. Bay windows jut from upperfloor bedrooms, while horizontal band windows denote the family room and office space. Vertical floor-to-ceiling windows correspond to formal rooms. “That set up a palette of variety, so in one part of the house the way you’re provided views is different than in another part of the house,” says Joslin. “It’s consistent with how we chose the materials.” Sustainability systems keep the carbon footprint minimal without detracting from the overall aesthetic—there are no unwieldy solar panels, but rather a thin photovoltaic film that sits between seams of the copper roof. Glass tubes with highperformance heat collection—so well integrated you never notice them—run along windows of the atrium and become a screen for skylights, allowing soft, filtered light into the house while collecting heat for hot water. All of the windows are well insulated, and there’s a geothermal well, an underground water retention system, maximized natural ventilation and Energy Star appliances. Three levels rise from basement to tree line; the lowest is dedicated to recreation

with a game room, media room, pantry and wine cellar. Guests arrive under a porte cochere at the first level and enter an open atrium where a custom staircase of colored glass and steel rises to the second floor. A complementary screen masks views to what lies above and, at entrance level, a similar screen offers brief glimpses into the dining room, where a selection of Thomas Nozkowski artwork and a colored glass chandelier give the space a gallery-like feel. Interior designer Andra Birkerts of Wellesley, Massachusetts, chose a terra-cotta color to accent the wood-paneled wall, adding warmth to the room and softening the edges of the exposed beam ceiling and stone wall accents. Other public areas on the first floor include the kitchen, breakfast room, library and family and living rooms. In the latter, determining the placement of the sectional proved to be something of a challenge. The owners wanted all furniture to face the outside, where formal gardens, terraces, manicured lawn and large, carefully placed scholar rocks enhance the environment, but Birkerts felt it was important to create intimate areas for conversation. “The definition of the room comes through that sectional, and it creates a fairly cozy space within a very large room with hard surfaces,” says the designer. “The scholar rocks were clearly very important elements of the design, but I always tend to keep the human side of the way people inhabit their spaces as a priority.” Twin leather chairs across from the sofa grant visual access to the gorgeous views of nature and art beyond. The top floor hosts rooms that invite slumber for family and guests along with a nanny suite and studies for both husband and wife. The overall aesthetic throughout is simple and refined but comfortable, with durable fabrics and warm, family-friendly accents. Patterns are drawn from the views outside, and an emphasis remains on natural materials both inside and out. “As one strolls through the house it’s filled with these rich vistas and variation,” says Joslin. “It’s like moving through this varied sculpture, and you’re not bored in any place because you’re constantly confronting different and unique conditions.” The beauty of science—and of the art of design—is that there’s always another question to pose, a boundary to push, an idea to embrace • Resources For more information about this home, see page 147.

nyone might think, given its 10,000 square feet, that this home’s pre-furnished condition would have been a blessing. The new owners were eager to get their brood ensconced by summer, after all, and a complete interior—especially one in excellent shape—was a plus. And the Meredith, New Hampshire, location by a lake was drop-dead, postcardworthy beautiful, so why did the decor matter? Well, as they say, “When the shoe doesn’t fit, it doesn’t fit.” The classic cabin palette of pine-green and red should have made its new occupants feel cozy, but instead it made them feel closed in. And where were the set-yourwet-bathing-suits-down-here furnishings and fabrics they wanted as parents of four active kids? Acknowledging the need for some speedy intervention, the couple recruited interior designers Michael Carter and Douglas Truesdale of Boston’s Carter & Company. Not a duo to balk at anything so minor as an incredibly short deadline, the men rose to the occasion, pulling together an impressive presentation that they staged (think endless boxes of samples, fabric swatches and unfurled carpets) in their client’s New Jersey home in March. “Our challenge,” says Carter, “was to create a retreat our clients could love—one that matched their good taste and sophisticated aesthetic. The house was impersonal. We needed to give it a soul.” No surprise, really, the owners awarded everything they were shown an enthusiastic thumbs-up. Come July 1, they congratulated themselves, they’d be in their lakeside abode, and the lodge ambience that felt a bit too clichéd would be gone like the wind. Like the wind was how the designers had to function, too. “It was so much fun,” recalls Carter. “We felt like race horses going out of the gate. There was a single vision, one perfect snapshot in mind, and no time for second guessing.” At turbo speed the designers whitewashed the walls above the honey-gold paneling and ousted yesterday’s stiff furnishings. Presto chango! Immediately the house felt airier and more open to the outdoors. Steering clear of jarring colors and patterns, the designers chose instead soft blues, browns and grays—soothing colors to complement the surroundings and, at the same time, update the mood. “I hear the lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore . . . I hear it in the deep heart’s core,” Yeats—a lake lover himself—once penned. Having spent boyhood summers here, the husband had a roster of sweet memories and was looking to create similar ones for his family. With that in mind, Carter and Truesdale launched a pilgrimage up and down the coast searching for unfussy pieces that November/December 2012 New England Home 93

A period eighteenth-century American grandfather clock with brass fittings was discovered in a local shop and installed in the foyer to join a pair of handcrafted benches unearthed in Maine and a stately antique wooden stag snapped up in Connecticut. The last—resting atop an Adirondack-style console—locks eyes with visitors coming though the front door. The dining room, which projects out toward the lake on three sides—“like the bow of a ship,” says Carter—was given a new table and Windsor-style chairs anyone would swear were two centuries old. Understated, and as welcoming as pile of blueberry pancakes, the room practically begs for leisurely gatherings. Wool, duck canvas, leather. . . in came a steady influx of sturdy fabrics to ease vacation living. Sumptuous wool curtains in a soft muted plaid were hung, antique carpets with a history of durability were laid and prints and watercolors were arranged on walls. In lieu of the standard taxidermied prize above the living room hearth’s hefty mantel the designers mounted an antique Black Forest–style carved stag’s head. Indeed, there are a number of good-looking antlers (including a stunning antler-framed mirror). “The house is so large and spacious, we could spread them around without worry it was ever too much,” Carter explains. Never letting up on the gas, the talented team maintained a non-stop flurry of activity for three months. The home’s hardware stayed in place, but the light fixtures were swapped for ones that were less ponderous. “There was too much testosterone in the prior lighting. We tamed it,” Carter says. Rather than a blast of illumination, today’s beams cast a toasty glow on the paneled walls. In a flash, two formerly non-functioning balconies at either end of the living room were transformed. One became the wife’s office, complete with an antique desk above which a grid of framed ferns riffs on the area’s lush flora. A dainty chaise was found to roost beside the window, affording her a spot for resting and taking in views. The opposite balcony was turned into a cozy reading 94 New England Home November/December 2012

Maximizing the home’s hillside site, the children’s bedrooms are situated below the ground floor on the walkout level. Heaven for them translates to opening a bedroom door and trotting straight to the lake for an eye-opening dip before breakfast. Located above on the main floor, the sunny parents’ suite may not have that particular luxury, but it has plenty of other benefits, like a lofty ceiling and an abundance of natural light. Formerly painted a deep red, the current room is a pale blue-gray, a color that teams well with the rustic architecture and provides serenity. And where do guests sleep? Their refurbished quarters perch above the attached garage. Charged with seeing to all the details, Carter and Truesdale also trucked in smaller everyday necessities, everything from dishware to linens. As the deadline drew nearer, their tempo accelerated until finally the big day dawned. “Douglas and I were literally backing down the driveway as the family was pulling in,” recalls Carter with apparent delight. The two designers have been friends forever, but Truesdale recently joined the firm, so this was the pair’s first collaboration. Needless to say, it most definitely won’t be their last. • Resources For more information about this home, see page 147. 96 New England Home November/December 2012

A sea of blues and taupes washes the living room of the remodeled Victorian in softness. Designer Kristen Rivoli mixed traditional and contemporary furnishings and art. Right: The foyer’s original woodwork was restored, then updated with a geometric-print stair runner and an antique console given a coat of brilliant automotive paint.

A

century ago, at the height of the Victorian building boom, women in crinoline dresses bustled around rooms outfitted in dark wood paneling and colors of oxblood and evergreen. Both the fashion and interiors of that time now seem suffocating, but back then they were the epitome of good taste. For a Boston family moving back to the area from California, respect ran high for the craftsman details of the Victorian architecture in the house they bought. The high ceilings and large windows were also a draw, but inside they yearned for the airiness that now defines the modern home. Taking the old house from “typical” to “today” without stripping it of its charm fell to the professionals at LDa Architects and Kristen Rivoli Interior Design, who collaborated to blend the best of the past with the present. From the street, the house looks much like the same stately, shuttered structure it was a hundred years ago. On the back, an addition gave the family a new master bedroom and bath on the second floor and a new kitchen, breakfast area and family room below. “They wanted something on the outside that wasn’t a slave to the original, but that wouldn’t stick out too much,” says Treff LaFleche, the principal architect on the project. “The transition is subtle, not abrupt, but with contemporary materials.” November/December 2012 New England Home 101

Inside is a lightness and freedom no Victorian homeowner would recognize. The foyer still holds the original dark-stained staircase and tall, carved newel post, but now walls soar in Rivoli’s palette of soft blues and taupes. “Nobody today likes the darkness of an old house, so we tried to keep it light,” the designer says. A custom stair runner, geometric sheer curtains and an eye-popping yellow console give the first hints of the contemporary twists that help the house make its shift from yesterday to today. Throughout the rooms on the first floor, Rivoli juxtaposed traditional with modern, abstract with classic. In the parlor, bookcases and moldings were repaired and painted over in cream, but it’s the Antoine Proulx table with its curved stainless base that places this house clearly in the present. For the adjacent living room, now awash in blues, the designer re-covered an existing sofa and refinished the homeowner’s own coffee table to better suit the pair of modern upholstered armchairs and a bentwood occasional chair by the Italian brand Flexform. Art played a substantial role in the mix of old and new. “I love the oil painting by Peter Brooks,” says Rivoli. “The dancers are an old art shown in a new perspective. I tried to take something very traditional in each room and make it more abstract or modern when I could.” That idea of regarding the traditional through a modern lens continues in the dining room, where Rivoli commissioned a custom pendant fixture with hand-blown glass globes. She cleverly juxtaposed a handhewn trestle table with upholstered Flexform chairs, a Ralph Pucci console and a traditional landscape painting for a mix of styles that makes a flattering combination. “The clients aren’t super formal,” says the designer. “They loved the idea of having a weather-worn table with more modern pieces.” Rivoli’s fresh take works with the original woodwork and trim because a cohesive thread runs through the fabrics and finishes. “The paint colors and Kristen’s furnishings give it a more contemporary flair,” says LaFleche. “Furnishings do a tremendous job making the house feel fresh and new.” LaFleche and project architect Dean Hofelich had their own opportunity to bridge new with old in the home’s addition. The family room’s cleanly coffered ceiling and simplified moldings give lightness to the space, while a sectional sofa defines the room as modern and family-friendly.

In the kitchen, where LDa, Rivoli and Venegas and Company collaborated, craftsmanship details are on full display in the island, which looks as if one end grew from a giant walnut trunk. Traditional Carrara marble tile is given a modern spin in the backsplash, installed in horizontal blocks around a grouping of windows that surround the range hood, bringing in light from the mudroom. The breakfast area opposite the kitchen island stands in the octagonal addition that LaFleche says recalls the Victorian towers of old. An iconic Knoll pedestal table, chairs from Blu Dot and the simple, lightly stained woodwork, however, make it clear that this isn’t your great aunt’s kitchen. On the second floor, a modern version of a Japanese soaking tub by Wet fills the octagon in the master bath. A separate shower on one side and a glass partition on the other give the tub the feeling of being in a separate room from the double vanity flanked by tall storage cabinets. “It has a nice spa feeling to it,” says LaFleche. “The dark floors are a little gesture back to the Victorian. It’s softer to the foot and counterbalances the crisp quality of the glass.” The master bedroom plays on the same oasis feeling, but in a darker color scheme. A custom headboard forms a half wall between the bath and bedroom and provides space for books, phones, a drawer and reading sconces. “The room is really soft and relaxing,” says Rivoli. “I didn’t want the bedroom to be a ‘look at me’ moment, but a space grounded in warmth and comfort.” Velvety blue walls create a quiet atmosphere in the highceilinged room, where rich brown custom bedding echoes the soaring chocolate beams. Instead of protruding, shelving recedes into the walls and cabinet doors are flush. The blending of old and new in the renovation and addition also took sustainability into mind, clearing a number of hurdles to earn LEED silver certification. “It was something we were able to achieve without tearing everything out,” says LaFleche. The result is a house that honors its Victorian past but suits the activities and aesthetics of the modern young family calling it home today. Craft, from the original wood carvings to the modern take on a kitchen island, flows throughout. What a difference a century can make. •

he first goal was a no-brainer: it was all about the views. The lot, on a hillside in Stowe, Vermont, gazes over the famous resort’s ski slopes and alpine peaks. The breathtaking panoramas drove the homeowners, the architect and the interior designer at every step of the design process. The aesthetic that guided them, however, was rooted in elegance. The result is a ski house that genuinely relates to its dramatic surroundings while utterly lacking any of the gingerbread or the “rugged rustic” personality so common to ski houses. “My clients love warmth, but wanted to avoid the ski chalet look,” says Jennifer Palumbo, an interior designer based in Newton, Massachusetts, who has worked with the couple on a number of homes. “They wanted sophistication, and a lot of light.” The designer collaborated from the start with architect David Kaselak of Colorado’s Zehren and Associates, the pair working together to create a house that presents a traditional mountain home 112 New England Home November/December 2012

exterior and opens to an interior that’s chic, stylish and relaxed. “We avoided the temptation of relating to the quaint architecture of Stowe itself,” Kaselak says. “We set out to establish a mountain presence with stone and lumber that is like old New England architecture. The clients like the roof forms of simple mountain cabins; the design followed.” Despite his firm’s western location, Kaselak has intimate knowledge of the venerable New England resort. Zehren and Associates specializes in residential resort community architecture as well as commercial and community projects such as golf resorts, base lodges and churches. In fact, his clients already had a Zehren-designed vacation home in one of the firm’s developments, a neighborhood of thirty-eight 3,500-square-foot duplex houses at the base of Spruce Peak Mountain in Stowe. It made perfect sense to enlist the same architectural firm to build their dream house. “They will probably retire here,” Palumbo explains. “In this, their most personal home, which functions as a second home until they retire, they wanted a warm and intimate interior that would

also provide space for children, their spouses and for friends.” The design plan began with the outdoors. “The owners wanted to take advantage of the amazing views,” Palumbo says. “They also specified that large windows were important to bring light in. We designed a large, open floor plan that works for both a couple and for a house full of guests.” Despite the drama spied from every spacious, elegant room, this 6,200-square-foot getaway is anything but ostentatious. “We de-emphasized the entry, made it muted,” says Kaselak. “We brought finish and a clean, modern look to the exterior with red cedar shingles that are grooved like corduroy. The interior The breathtaking panoramas drove the architect and the styling,” he continues, interior designer at every step of the design process. “is what I would call ‘Mountain Modern.’ ” The house presents a traditional timber-framed appearance. “The timber trusses are authentic,” Kaselak explains, “but they are defining accents.

simple lines.” True divided lights in the large double-glazed windows reinforce the refined sensibility. Except in the downstairs playroom, colors are subtle—an array of neutrals complemented with yellows ranging from muted gold to sunny lemon. “The owners use the house in all four seasons, so the colors have to feel warm in winter and look good with foliage in summer and fall,” Palumbo says. “In the kitchen, we were dealing with heavy beams, so we incorporated texture and kept to quiet paint colors.” The kitchen’s texture derives from a stone-clad fireplace wall and from dramatically figured applewood that sheathes both the stove hood and the base of the T-shaped island. “The island shape fosters intimacy,” says Palumbo. “It works equally well for just a few people as for a crowd. The applewood is warm, but linear, and very refined.” A playful gray-and-white patterned fabric on the backs of the barstools adds a dynamic note to the peaceful palette. The kitchen flows into the dining room, which flows, in turn, into a living room endowed with extra drama by a wall of windows and strong timber-clad architectural elements like the cathedral ceiling. Large lantern fixtures hold their own, while sconces and up- and down-facing LED fixtures wash the walls with light. Walnut flooring throughout the house adds another warm note. The first-floor master bedroom follows a similar motif. Grass cloth wallcovering that mimics birch bark provides texture and a sophisticated, subtle metallic lemon-green color. The beamed, slanted ceiling lends a cozy touch. The outside living room is almost as important as the interior. “They wanted intimate spots throughout,” Palumbo says. “This living room incorporates the hot tub. The cushions stay on the outdoor furniture through December because this is such a favorite gathering place for the family. Again, the space works just as well for one person looking for a quiet reading nook as it does for a party.” The tension between indoors and out, between sophisticated and family friendly, subtle and dramatic made for a challenging program, Kaselak says. “It kept us constantly checking in with each other to make sure that we met the homeowner’s expectations.” As far as their clients are concerned, Kaselak and Palumbo succeeded brilliantly. His knowledge of the area and her long relationship with them resulted in a mountain home that is sophisticated, spacious and eminently livable. “We had the A-team,” says the husband. His wife agrees. “There is a spectacular view, an ‘ahhh’ moment in every room, no matter where you stand or sit,” she says. It’s not just about views, though, she notes. “They ensured that the details were right. We love our pets, and we specified that all west-facing windows be designed with deep ledges to support our large cat, who enjoys the vistas as much as we do.” While the location is an obvious winner, it’s not what this homeowner loves best. not the breathtaking “They love warmth, but wanted to avoid the ski chalet “It’s mountain or valley views,” look. They wanted sophistication, and a lot of light.” she says. “It’s the evocative artwork, the warmth and playfulness of the decor and the craftsmanship throughout. This house feels just right.” • Resources For more information about this home, see page 147. November/December 2012 New England Home 117

Trade Secrets Who’s doing what, when, where and how in the New England design business

MICHAEL FEIN

BY LOUIS POSTEL

Soul Food for Thought HOW DO YOU KNOW A DESIGNER IS REALLY GOOD? WELL,

you just have to ask: how is business? And understand there are only three acceptable replies: busy, very busy, and never been busier. In fact, we are flat out, working right through Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s! That designer, that architect, is really good. In demand. Turning clients away. While you are debating whether to add another dash of nutmeg to your eggnog, your designer friends are scrambling to meet deadlines: simultaneously faxing St. Croix, coaxing a T-square and high-fiving an assistant for coming in on his one day off this month. So how did this designer get so crazy busy? Paradoxically, part of the answer can be found in the time she took off. Everything in our culture suggests that down time is wasted time. Production, billable hours, the bottom line— that’s what counts. And yet, that “production is everything” ethic is not completely air tight; in fact, it is beginning to break down. If the person helping us create a relaxing, comfortable home has no idea what comfortable and relaxing truly means, we feel something is lacking. Slowly but steadily, we have seen the definition of a good designer evolve: a state of busyness is still fine as far as it goes, but somewhere, somehow, a designer has to have an inner life, too. Clients will come to expect a creative, curious, occasionally poetic sensibility to imbue their homes with spirit and uniqueness. Now 126 New England Home November/December 2012

if they would only underwrite a sabbatical year! • • • “Quality of life requires a richness of soul. Design itself means feeding that soul,” says designer Jean Verbridge of Siemasko + Verbridge of Beverly, Massachusetts. She recalls a trek through the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, seeking clarity about what all that soul stuff meant. “Instead of measuring Gross National Product the way we do in the west, they calibrate their success by something they call the Gross National Happiness Index,” she says. “By that measure they have to be the richest people on earth.” Lessons she took home? “There was a lot to learn about quality over quantity, making homes smaller and simpler, becoming less enslaved to the inside of the house and making time for the greater good. It is what I see a lot of baby-boomers looking for as they enter pre-retirement: quality of life, not size of life.” • • • Architect Joe Haskett, of Providence’s Union Studio, took time out for some continuing education of his own: namely, learning how to lower a building’s energy consumption by a staggering 90 percent. Now the state of Rhode Island’s sole registered Passive House consultant, Haskett can conceive of luxury condominiums with no utility bills. “People think the Passive House model is strictly about single-family homes,” Haskett says, “but single-family homes are by their very nature less effi- Joe Haskett cient than multi-family homes. In multifamily structures you have shared walls and, consequently, far less exposure to the outside.” Haskett may not have to wait long to put his certification into practice. Union Studio is gaining a national reputation for planning sustainable, traditionally inspired communities. • • • Custom builder Andrew Goldstein had a less-than-privileged life as a kid growing up in the Bronx. His youth was about card parties, cigar smoke and a steady rain of blows upon mind and body. The founder of Thoughtforms in West Acton, Massachusetts, Goldstein heads one of the most successful and prestigious firms in the area, but he also made time to reconnect with his first love: writing. The result is a fast-paced, semi-autobiographical novel, The Bookie’s Son, available on Amazon. “I learned business early—taking bets for my Dad when I was twelve over the phone. You could not make a mistake,” he recalls. “Later on, I grew up, got married. I loved writing, but my wife reminded me we had a baby on the way, and writing would not pay the bills. So Andrew Goldstein I turned to building. It was important to me to do the exact opposite of my father, to do everything absolutely honestly and above board. Now, I hope in a few years I will be able to write full time, and the

folks at Thoughtforms will be able to say, ‘What did we ever need that guy for?’” • • • Goldstein’s bookie Dad may have skirted the margins of Bronx mob-dom, but the Borgias were the real thing. Boston-based designer Eric Roseff took time off in the spring from his busy, hands-on practice to create a window display for the producers of the Showtime TV show about the Renaissance poisoners and art patrons. The display—one of ten commissioned nationwide by the network—sat in the window of Marcoz Antiques’ new location in the heart of Boston’s Design District. Roseff ’s dramatic riff on seductress Salome and St. John the Baptist included a severed head on a silver platter. “We found it at a beauty school,” Roseff says. “It was very realistic.” A bit too realistic, it turns out. The building’s owners objected, and poor St. John had his head removed for a second time. • • • Architect Claudio Veliz is taking offense at another display window not yet built—as well as the store that would lie behind it. The store in question would be one more link in the huge Dollar General chain, which is determined to set up shop in Chester, Vemont. Veliz, who moved to the tiny town from New York seven years ago, finds himself fully committed to a coalition of locals in opposing the project. Not that he is anti-corporate; Veliz worked for Saks, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, even The Donald for a time. What he objects to is the “paratrooper builder” approach, dropping buildings on a site with no regard for the environment around it. “These are structures designed from afar and Claudio Veliz in the abstract: massproduced objects based on marketing studies, stripped down in every detail to a pure profit-making formula,” Veliz says. “As the only architect in the area, I feel I must shoulder some responsibility for the quality of life here.” • • • Clearly, responding to design emergencies on Main Street hardly represents the straight road to billable hours. Ditto for taking the time to learn a building science like Passive House, to write an autobiographical novel, or to trek through Himalayan kingdoms. On the other hand, a perpetual state of flat-out busyness may

New and Noteworthy You still have time to get a look at the Junior League of Boston 2012 Show House, the first the organization has put together in six years. The 1860s Potter Estate, in Newton, Massachusetts, is dressed to the nines by area designers and landscapers and will be open for viewing until November 18. For tickets and information, visit the league’s website, www.jlboston.org. People who love shopping for unique and beautiful things for the home have two new options just outside Boston. Michael Carter and Lynn Dayton have teamed up to open Carter Dayton Home in Wellesley. It’s been fun following the duo’s regular reports on their website as they’ve trekked far and wide to stock their shop. In Lexington, Robin Gannon has just opened Haven, a boutique offering a spirited selection of products that bring color and personality to the home.

Liz Caan Interiors has expanded both her retail space and her design offerings. The Newton, Massachusetts, shop is chock-full of wonderful furnishings and accessories, and Caan has also launched Design to Go, a flat-fee service for people looking for design help on a smaller scale than a wholehouse redo. Ali Haider has channeled almost two decades of experience in the carpet business into a new venture. Weston Carpet, in Norwell, Massachusetts, expertly covers a wide swath of the South Shore’s high-end market, offering rugs, carpets, hardwood flooring, cleaning, repairs and appraisals. It’s an expansion for Gil Walsh Interiors, too. The designer and her partner, Holly Stephan, recently opened a new studio in Edgartown on Martha’s 130 New England Home November/December 2012

Lucia Lighting and Design of Lynn, Massachusetts, for instance, has made a habit of contributing to the quality of life in its community, raising money for scholarships, health care and victims of natural disasters.

Sketch Pad Design ideas in the making

I OFTEN THINK OF a pattern before defining the shapes it will be applied to. After some quick sketches, or some-

times just test-carving the idea on a spare, I am able to work out technical aspects of the elements in relationship to each other. For my new Paris ceramics collection I loved the idea of thick “bubbles” stacked on top of each other, with the rims of the pieces having a random edge. After deciding on overall shapes and sizes for the bowls, I then made several circular templates on thick paper to figure out the scale of the pattern to be applied. Using the templates and working downward and around from the rim, I draw the pattern on each piece while the clay is only leather-hard. After the first couple of rows I start drawing the lower carved edge, having it undulate rather dramatically so as to create the “organic” vibe I want in this collection. I’ve found, after carving the first couple of pieces, that the negative shapes created by the stacked bubbles are the most interesting aspect of this pattern. My favorite days are those spent unloading the kiln to see if my endeavors were successful—and inevitably finding something needing a tweak. Ah, someday!
