Modern Rubber

The gray and white rubber pots are from Ligne Roset.

The pale blue rubber vase (above) was found at Galeries Lafayette in Paris. When I spotted this vase, I thought it was blown glass. As I gingerly picked it up, it folded in my hands and the bottom fell to the floor...talk about feeling as if you're in the twilight zone!

The cinnabar rubber pot
(above left) is from Conran's in Paris and is made by cutting edge "potters" Charlotte Arnal and François Fevre in their atelier in Paris. The black rubber bowl is my jeweler's bowl for mixing investment plaster for casting and is available from jeweler supply shops.

Designers have been producing hip looking rubber products for quite sometime now. Besides exuding modern cool, they turn out to be great room accessories to have around if you have children or clumsy adult visitors.

  2. Hello Mary-Laure,

    Thanks for dropping by.

    Yes, Ligne Roset does have great designs. They are moving into a larger space here in Houston because we Texans love French design.

    I looked at your blog. You are having a most unusual and wonderful life. I loved reading about you.
