KleinReid, the New York-based porcelain design firm, stands at the forefront of contemporary studio pottery in America. Partners James Klein and David Reid have backgrounds in fine art, and approach the design of their vases, tableware and lighting as works of sculpture. Each piece is crafted by hand and individually finished in their Brooklyn studio. KleinReid’s signature is simultaneously recognizable and unique, reflecting the artists’ knowledge of ceramics’ varied history. Influences from antiquity to the twentieth century quietly illuminate the duo’s contemporary designs.
James and David herald a decade of collaboration; a shared personal vision to make objects they love and have fun doing it. Each incarnation elegantly conveys goals that have remained consistent since KleinReid’s inception: versatile function, thoughtful design and lasting beauty.
