The Wall Street Journal features Jenev bird candle holders cast by Jerry Ackerman at age 97 in “The Off Duty Holiday Gift Guide: 50 Rare Finds.”
Design Within Reach collaborates with Ackerman Modern on an exclusive Jenev Ceramics collection reissue. The pieces, designed by Jerry in 1953, were selected from the originals and made with molds precisely copied from the masters.
Hand-In-Hand: Ceramics, Mosaics, Tapestries, and Woodcarvings by the California Mid-Century Designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman is the first book on the Ackermans’ contribution to California mid-century modernism. With a preface by Jonathan Adler, the book tells the story of a successful collaboration and celebrated partnership, not only in design, but in life.
California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way includes the Elipses mosaic now in the permanent collection at the Los Angeles County Art Museum. The exhibition travels to Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Massachusetts.
