DIGDEEP X Ben Medansky: Vessel, A Gift That Gives Back
by Jessica Deseo on 11/25/2015 | 3 Minute Read
The Dieline along with our good friends Dig Deep, The Yellow Loft and Ben Medansky have been working on a collaboration dear to us for the past few months. Dig Deep, an organization that believes "Everyone has a right to clean water" approached us for a unique collaboration we couldn't resist being a part of.
Dig Deep wanted a product that would attract those who live and breathe design. With the help of Ceramist Ben Medansky, we created a unique vessel that feels amazing in your hand, fits just as well in a car cup holder, on your nightstand, or on your desk. The vessel is made with minerals from the American Southwest, and clean water from the Navajo Nation. It is hand-numbered and entirely unique.
Each vessel brings running water to Navajo American families.
Ben Medansky creates ceramic objects with an understanding of their permanence and importance in daily ritual. A native of Arizona, Ben drew inspiration from the textures and colors of the Navajo Nation, creating something that is both beautiful and functional.
DIGDEEP develops community-led solutions to water poverty. DIGDEEP is the only global water organization working here in the US, where 40% of Navajo families don’t have clean water.
Use your vessel as a water bottle, a vase or a carafe: Everyone has a right to clean water.
A limited amount of vessels were hand-made by Ceramic artist Ben Medansky. You will receive 1 / 100 vessels. Each vessel is one-of-kind and comes in a unique hand-dipped canvas bag, and cork topper. Give the gift of water this year and help support The Navajo project.
