Often incorporating intentional imperfections and nontraditional ideas of beauty into her work, São Paolo-based ceramicist and artist Claudia Issa is Kornegay Design’s latest visiting artist. Their partner, Landscape Forms, has introduced Issa’s Paseos, a collection of landscape amenities created through Kornegay’s Visiting Artist Program. The cast concrete pieces are public scale, sharing bold ideas of balance, motion and rotation. Issa’s use of organic forms and intentional asymmetry in her designs lends itself well to Kornegay’s artisan, by-hand casting process.
The Paseos collection is made up of three sculptural forms: a tall landscape container, a wide landscape container and a solid pedestal that can serve as a low seat or a side table. Playful yet durable, Paseos is an invitation to participate in your surroundings. The line is offered in smooth or sandblasted finishes, with a choice of standard or custom-mixed integral pigments from Davis Colors.
“Working with Claudia Issa has been instrumental in our mission to grow and evolve the amazing brand that is Kornegay Design without losing the original soul that got it there in the first place,” says Landscape Forms Chief Creative Officer, Kirt Martin. “I find her new collaborative work to be quite moving and inspiring – it’s at once very Kornegay, very evocative of the brand, but also a fresh expression of her artistic vision and global experiences.”
