Dana Haim

Dana Haim received her formal training in textile design from both RISD and London’s Central Saint Martins. But the Brooklyn-based artist’s work is influenced as much by the things she’s learned as the experiences she’s had. “I take inspiration from my dynamic and colorful dream life, from the places I’ve traveled, and from the magic found in nature: the beauty of wood grain, the many facets of mineral stones and gems, the life cycle of wild mushrooms, a stampede of horses.” Until recently, Haim focused primarily on wallpaper and small pom-pom mobiles, often created in partnership with women in need in Colombia, her native country. We’re happy to host one of Haim’s first forays into ceramics: a statement-making, geometric pendant and three decorative spoons, small studies in simple shapes, glazes, and etching techniques.
