Porcelain with personality by Powder Studio in NoDa



LOGAN CYRUS

Each hand-cast porcelain creation from Powder Studio has a personality, but each piece is also open to interpretation. “We like [our line] because it looks different to everyone,” says Stephen James, who owns Powder Studio with his partner Nathan Tucker. Their designs are meant to be useful—as vases or tea-light holders—but are also beautiful on their own as sculptural art. James and Tucker build the molds, pour the porcelain, glaze the pieces, and fire their wares inside their NoDa studio. The delicate porcelain gives their work a beautiful quality, but it can also make the items fragile: James and Tucker lose about 25 percent of their work during the production process. “You’re not really in control,” Tucker says. Prices start at $24, powder-studio.com.
