Ben of KC puts makeup on a magazine.
ODLCO presents the first solo exhibition of Los Angeles-based ceramicist Ben Medansky from September 26th through October 27th.
Objects include table lamps, candlestick holders, cups, pedestal stands, and bundled sculptural objects, created from clay forms that are first extruded into cylindrical profiles. Each piece was shaped, glazed and fired by hand in Medansky’s workshop. All works will be on sale at ODLCO for the duration of the show. Read more about Ben and his studio at LA I’m Yours.
We moved into our space June 1st, 2012. One year later, we opened to the public. Here is a brief summary of the transformation of ODLCO from cold storage into design office and store, accompanied by process photos and before-and-after shots.
The space was most recently a refrigerated building for storing meat. The fridge and entire interior was demolished shortly before our move-in date (old interior pictured below). When we arrived, it needed every kind of work. The electrical conduit had been ripped from the ceilings, there were very few electrical outlets and no lights or switches. The bathroom upstairs was a shell of a men's bathroom, with a urinal and a barely-functioning sink.
Our permanent retail storefront is now open! We've got Bauer ceramics, enamel espresso makers, needle felted animals, Munari children's books, Swedish linen and more. Come visit us. We're open by loose appointment through August 16th, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (312) 379-9052 to let us know when you'd like to stop by. We'll resume regular hours again in mid-August.
