what started as an archeological dig in beirut, lebanon eventually transitioned into a working collaboration between architect/designer natascha madeiski and silversmith/jeweler linnie mclarty. ‘now and then’ combines ceramics and brass metalwork in a referential series that nods both to architecture and history.

madeiski’s porcelain containers and mclarty’s metal flatware unite in a range of lidded containers produced in four sizes and color-ways, with a small selection of additional accessories. ‘now and then’ objects are available in green, grey, salmon and white, constructed using slip-casting techniques. each container comes with a hand-finished brass utensil such as: spoons, sieves, forks, and handles.

for the official launch, madeiski and mclarty created a site-specific installation at the 2015 LDF london design festival. with cardboard as their material of choice, the display features ‘now and then’ hidden beneath and uncovered above a fictional archeological dig
