please enjoy these forward ceramic pieces and interactive mixed media installations by dynamic french designer sam baron. sam enjoys working in clay (although is not limited to it) because it’s a very human material that offers lots of creative possibilities and dimension.

sam is currently design director for fabrica, an experimental art collective which is funded by benetton and based in italy. the installations blur the line between the world of art and the world of commercialism, and encourage thought and discourse. they are showcased in their network of commercial and cultural spaces, located in bologna, montecatini, lisbon, hong kong and istanbul.

fabrica’s latest idea is you are here, a traveling art exhibition/retail shop featuring a selection of ceramics, stationery and bags, designed for an creative-minded audience. this show is currently at beyond the valley in london.
