The Village – a blog series #3 Installment #3 It takes a village to plan and produce a photo shoot. Here we celebrate the wonderful and talented artists, designers, and businesspeople who have made it all possible. SIMON PEARCE Quechee, VT www.simonpearce.com A pillar of the Vermont art and design community, Simon Pearce designs blend beauty, character, and functionality. Founded by its namesake patriarch in 1981, Simon Pearce has become a very successful company, nationally recognized as a design leader in glass, pottery, and other artisanal luxuries for the home. With the striking similarities in history and design between Hubbardton Forge and Simon Pearce, it is no wonder that their designs feel as if they were intended to be together. By Alison Alexander, Art Director for Hubbardton Forge. This is a continuing series, where we acknowledge and share stories of some of the artists, designers, and business people with whom we work, behind the scenes, as we envision each new collection, each new piece, and bring it to life visually. We encourage you to explore the websites of our talented partners, and to check back for new installments of “The Village”.
