    TABBATHA HENRY DESIGNS ANNOUNCES CONTRACT SERVICES

    Minimalist Porcelain Installations Now Available

    WATERBURY, VERMONT – Tabbatha Henry Designs, a leading purveyor of minimalist porcelain objects and installations for the home, announced today that it is now offering bespoke interior and exterior contract installation services.The move comes in conjunction with the company’s expansion to a second production facility and its attendance at New York’s prestigious NYNOW market next week.

                Tabbatha Henry Designs’ products respond to the modern consumer’s desire for beautiful yet utilitarian objects designed to work equally well when blended with works by other makers or used as the focus in an overall décor scheme. Eachof the company’s elegantly formed, deceptively simple works, from itssignature luminaries and votives to its electrified lanterns andinterior installations, is crafted by the founder and her colleagues of slip-cast or hard-paste porcelain, both demanding materials that reveal the hand of the maker, as well as their intrinsic beauty, once fired. Works are given names that honor the natural patterns they evoke, such as “Tall Grass,” “Firefly” and “Starry Sky;” most objects are unglazed, exposingthe porcelain’s innate character and surprising strength. “Porcelain, more than any other material, finds its ultimate identity in the heat of the kiln,” says Henry. “It exists in the sculptural realm; so,while my pieces are made to be used every day, they’re designed to enhance their surroundings when they’re not in service.”

                Henry’s spare, singular aesthetic reveals itself equally in her hand-built installations for private clients, which range from a large piece composed of gently undulating shapes that together resemble a shoal of fish to a quieter corner installation of frilled “mushrooms” seemingly growing out of a wall. “I like to take a big hunk of clay and let the form reveal itself as I work,” says Henry. “My work is reductive rather than additive.” The company’s new contract installations, composed of slipcast forms bearing names that reflect the inherently wabi-sabi nature of porcelain—including “Nami,” “Tana” and “Awa”—reflect that sensibility.

                Tabbatha Henry Designs wasfounded in 2008, with a single line of hand-built luminaries. Today, its products are carried nationwide in galleries, specialty retail boutiques, and museum shops, and its objects and installations can be found in homes, offices, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada.The company’ssignature linesand custom installations can be seen at tabbathahenry.com; the new contract work can be seen at the company’s booth (no. 9404) at NYNOW.

    TABBATHA HENRY DESIGNS ANNOUNCES NEW PRODUCTION FACILITY

    Larger Capacity; Shorter Lead Times; New Products

    WATERBURY, VERMONT – Tabbatha Henry Designs, a leading purveyor of minimalist porcelain objects and installations for the home, announced today that it has expanded its production facility from its original grist mill studio in Waterbury, to the south end arts district of Burlington, Vermont.

    With demand at an all time high, the company was ripe for expansion. No longer able to maintain production demand in the quaint grist mill location, the move nearly triples the company’s production capability, shortening lead times, and allowing for the introduction of new product.

    The company will maintain its Waterbury location as a design studio and flagship retail location, open to the public.

    Tabbatha Henry Designs’ products respond to the modern consumer’s desire for beautiful yet utilitarian objects designed to work equally well when blended with works by other makers or used as the focus in an overall décor scheme.
