Flower pots by Isaac Nichols
In Greenpoint — just across from McCarren Park on Lorimer — there’s a quiet, nondescript studio space full of wonders. Our friend Cody Hoyt — whose solo show opens tomorrow in the gallery at Ace New York — introduced us to the place, where he and a close-knit crew of ceramicist friends are operating a miniature factory of earthen fineries.
The work varies wildly, but Hoyt and fellow clay throwers Josephine Heilpern, Rachel Howe, Helen Levi, Isaac Nichols, and Natalie Weinberger are each uniquely firing (rimshot) on all cylinders — some functional and some elegant and some even a little rude. We’ll be keeping an eye on these kids.
