Susan Dwyer of Up In The Air Somewhere, is one of our favorites. A local designer who creates elegant ceramics inspired by the positive and negative spaces around her. After graduating from the Art Institute of Chicago where she studied sculpture, Dwyer focused primarily on ceramics and papier-mâché vessels inspired by the clean, minimal lines found in industrial architecture. These took off without a hitch and got attention from the likes of The New York Times, Design Sponge, Food+Wine, Real Simple and Chicago Social, just to name a few.
Last year, our production assistant, Sarah, stumbled upon Dwyer’s newest work at a pop-up design market called Big Big City: Chicago. She loved them so much and thought Unison’s owner and designer, Robert, would love them too. Good thing it was his birthday the following week. We got him a Cutaway vase and the rest is history! Not to take all the credit, Robert had seen her work before and already owned a vase. Now we are thrilled to carry Up In The Air ceramics in the Studio+Store and unisonhome.com!
