Gwathmey explained, this design – a hammered bowl bolted to a cross base – “has to do with the holder and the held, the frame and the object…creating a third ingredient; how the pieces come together.” It also seems a modern interpretation of arts & crafts design. Swid Powell commissioned celebrated architects and designers to create tableware in the 1980s and 1990s.
