Lately, I’ve been coveting the handsome plaster creations of Brooklyn artisan Stephen Antonson. Inspired by the work of 20th century masters like Giacometti and Jean Michel Frank, Stephen creates a striking array of chalky white tables, mirrors, lighting, and decorative objects. Each piece is painstakingly crafted using a steel armature that is then wrapped with gauze and layered with shellac, liquid plaster, and primer. A single large scale work takes Stephen weeks to complete. Back in 2012, the artist collaborated with West Elm, and I’m kicking myself for not having snatched up the entire collection.
