We've absolutely loved being a part of this year's Hampton Designer Showhouse, but one of our favorite takeaways was having the opportunity to work with ceramic artist Jennifer Prichard of J. Prichard Design. We have followed Jennifer and her brillant work for years, so when we first had the idea of doing a porcelain chime installation for our screened-in porch, she was the first person we called. Jennifer normally creates space-transforming wall installations for luxury hospitality and commercial spaces in the US and abroad (including the Herman Miller National Design Center), so we were pretty nervous about asking her to help us with a hanging installation that would be off the wall. But after explaining our concept and sending her a sketch, she enthusiastically agreed to help us. Jennifer's designs are usually created by hand in her Austin, Texas-based studio, which is certainly not convenient to the Hamptons. However, through many e-mails, phone calls, sketches, and fed-exed prototypes we finally came up with a design that all of us seemed happy with. We can't thank Jennifer enough for all of her hard work, especially on such short notice (she basically had less than 4 weeks to create hundreds of individual porcelain chimes). We flew her up to help with the actual installation and she worked her tail off for two days to create one of our favorite designs of all times. Not only are the chimes beautiful to look at, but the sound they make when the wind blows is truly amazing. We honestly couldn't be happier with the results and if you find yourself in the Hamptons please please please stop by the showhouse and take a look at our screened-in porch as well as the rest of the showhouse. It's a fantastic house for a fantastic cause with all of the proceeds benefitting the Southampon Hospital.
