Here are some ideas that will not disappoint; and if you enjoy spending time in the kitchen, head over to Saveur for a great guide to Valentine’s Day cooking, from breakfast in bed to romantic cocktails.

As for flowers, we’ll talk about that tomorrow . . .

A Tale of Plant & Pot: Kohei Oda and Adam Silverman


Oda X Silverman at Chariots on Fire

If you’re in the Los Angeles area this week, be sure to swing by creative studio and boutique Chariots on Fire, in Venice, where a collaboration between plant artist Kohei Oda and LA-based potter Adam Silverman is on display. A Tale of Plant & Pot is a creative collaboration that involves Oda’s full-of-personality specimens aptly complementing Silverman’s ceramic vessels, which take beautiful, unexpected forms and feature peculiar glazing. This exploration of the relationship between plant and pot also serves as a visual conversation between two artists: a potter and a horticulturalist.

Adam Silverman, LA Studio Director at Heath Ceramics, is an acclaimed potter and former architect. His work has been exhibited extensively in the US and Japan, where he has a dedicated following.

At Kohei Oda’s studio in Hiroshima, he composes many of his living sculptures through the practice of tissue grafting, a process that brings two pieces of plant together to grow singularly; the technique is not only an experiment in horticulture, but many of the pieces are salvaged from plants that would be considered imperfect or damaged.

A Tale of Plant & Pot runs through May 7  (extended from May 1) at Chariots on Fire, 1342 1/2 Abbot Kinney.
