NW x TPE candles, Winter 2017
Last summer I worked with Brooklyn store and home goods brand The Primary Essentials to design, prototype, and manufacture vessels for a scented wick candle, available in 4 variations and two scents. The prototypes were wheel thrown in my studio, then adapted into plaster molds for slip-casting by Brooklyn based Joya Studio, who expertly adopted my signature clay into a custom slip recipe. The candles burn for up to 120 hours and are available directly through TPE.
BIG FOOT, Spring 2016
PICTURE ROOM invited me to be their featured artist for the months of May and June, and for the occasion I made a collection paying homage to the elevated vessel: wheel thrown chalices, stemware, and a variety of other elevated table top items ranging from the useful to the absurd.
Collaboration with Anna Topuriya, 2014
Topuriya paints; Weinberger throws. Coming together over a mutual desire to reach across mediums, their inaugural 2014 collection draws from a shared longing for a time where clay & sun ruled supreme. The result is a series of pedestaled forms that evoke the hugging heat of the tropics, tepid blue waters & the rustle of palm leaves - a warm, hazy alternative to the inevitable cold of New York.
