Only Way Is Up

Only Way Is Up

Sculpture

Based in Los Angeles, CA

Established in 2021, OWIU Goods formed as a collective of artists during the height of the pandemic. Founded by Amanda Gunawan and Joel Wong and already well known globally as a full-service architecture and design firm, Only Way Is Up relished the opportunity to engage in smaller scale projects. Each collection is inspired by wanderlust and the ever changing color palette of natural landscapes. Hand sculpted from beginning to end, each piece reflects the aesthetic philosophy that narrative context creates value beyond the simple material itself. The thought that a carefully made object can be its own meditation. OWIU believes that the work is more than clay and glaze–each piece reflects a place, an emotion evoked by nature, and memory fixed as still-life.
