Harrell & Ladwig [ Collaborative Jewelry & Tableware ]

I met Lynda Ladwig, a porcelain artist, in the mid 2000s. The way she approaches her forms is similar to mine and we both have a minimalist aesthetic – less is more – and so we began our collaboration. The collection began with tableware, with the thought that using porcelain would make the silver more approachable and contemporary. We quickly evolved to creating a line of silver + porcelain jewelry (available at my Etsy shop). The strength and translucency of porcelain is a perfect companion to the whiteness and hardness of silver. We both believe this work is a match made in heaven and we look forward to developing more.
