My favorite spot in all of Los Angeles is a small storefront on Silver Lake Boulevard. The place is called 10 10, and when I first met the owner, Scott Nadeau, they were selling vintage modern furniture, art pottery and architectural pottery. They have since refined the business to focus primarily on craft manufactured furnishings and architectural pottery from artists and designers who first made a name in the mid-century, but who now are building and creating new versions of their classic designs. One of the best artists is Fresno-based Stan Bitters, a spectacular pottery sculptor who creates everything from water walls to planters to monoliths to bowls to clay tile curtains to bird feeders.
