Fashion Designer Lauren Manoogian’s Ceramic Collection Reflects her Textural Apparel

Earthy, textural apparel is Brooklyn fashion designer Lauren Manoogian’s stock in trade: natural fibers, nubby knitwear, tonal nudes, easy drapes. That aesthetic echoes in her series of wood-fired clay housewares, made in a northern Peruvian community where ceramics are traditionally and exclusively made 
by women. The 12 one-off forms—hand-built bowls, cups, and pots—have been collected 
by Manoogian over the years and are now released as an edit under the moniker Object. On some, a dry white surface resembling flour-dusted sourdough is achieved through the application of green banana pulp and copal resin, a sealant sometimes ceremonially burned as incense. The smoother pieces, meanwhile, 
are finished with a clay slurry and then hand-burnished. In light of COVID-19, 20 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Juguete Pendiente, a Lima-based NGO.
