Hedda Gabler at Antaeus

Hedda Gabler at Antaeus

We’d forgotten that Henrik Ibsen’s play Hedda Gabler had its world premiere in 1891; we don’t think of it as being a vintage work. And perhaps that’s part of Ibsen’s genius, having written plays such as A Doll’s House that confronted mores of the day with Nora, the main character, struggling with her traditional roll […]

Intermediate Wheel Throwing

Intermediate Wheel Throwing

Sharon Mann of Mann Handmade ceramics is one of our favorite local ceramicists. Her work is functional and yet our meals look definitively more impressive—and appealing—on Mann’s plates. Our dining room table is a very simple pine and a Mann bowl, ceramic spoon, coffee cup, vase, or pitcher adds color, warmth, and depth to the table, […]
