Nowness meet Memphis group legend Peter Shire

Proud to still live at home, Artist and potter Peter Shire takes Nowness around the Los Angeles home built by his father in 1949. Best known for his colourful work under the Memphis group banner, Shire’s “Post-pottery” continues to push bold primary shades and strong geometric forms whilst maintaining his families commitment to craftsmanship; an ethos clearly evident in this exceptional midcentury Echo Park home. Part of the My Apartamento series, Shire discusses the romance of a striped shirt and tells a few of his favourite dirty jokes.
