NYIGF Studio Preview: Grain

Grain returns to the JOIN booth with a new edition of their Bound hand mirror where precision-cut parts come together with hours of hand wrapping. The hemp twine handle adds detail and texture to each mirror while also functioning to secure the mirror to its wood backing.

Grain is a practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. The work of partners Chelsea Green and James Minola unites current manufacturing technologies and age-old craft techniques. Goods are produced in small batch runs at their island studio or through special collaborations with expert artisans in the US and abroad.

Grain's work will be on view at the JOIN booth at the NYIGF. Find JOIN next to the American Design Club at the Jacob K. Javits Center, Lobby Level 2, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm August 19 - 21; 2:00 - 6:00 pm August 22.
