Kelly Wearstler’s Gallery is an evolution of the studio’s long history of collaboration with emerging and established artists to create custom pieces for private clients and hospitality projects. Kelly Wearstler reunites with longstanding creative partners on a series of exclusive collections for her digital Gallery.
Bringing focus to artists around the globe, Gallery offers a unique platform to view these collaborations in one place. Through the convergence of organic materiality, traditional craft and technology, each collection is the result of a deep exploration of each artist’s work.
From sculptural designs 3D printed from recycled materials to clay works created in centuries-old traditional techniques, each singular piece in Gallery is both distinct from yet complementary to one another. The Gallery will continue to serve as a playground for creative discovery as it pushes the boundaries to present diverse bodies of work that live together in harmony.
