JONATHAN ADLER! YAY! We were so excited to talk to the potter and home decor mogul about life, love, and (irreverent) luxury.
In this episode, he reveals how he found refuge from a tortured adolescence in clay and the potter’s wheel, and how getting out from behind the wheel engendered a personal creative explosion. Plus, he drops some serious knowledge bombs on us! Listen:
Since launching his namesake brand, Jonathan Adler, he's opened 29 stores and designed thousands of products, some you will probably recognize, specifically his signature pottery, which started it all.
He shares with us the origin of his very first store in Soho, which he believes was a turning point in his career.
We also get the story behind the design of the iconic Parker Palm Springs.
And, even after becoming a design mogul, he still throws pots. Watch Jonathan in action right here!
