We are in the beautiful Yorkshire area, where Liz is wearing an amazing combination frame called Ponza, from the Dolce collection of Jeremy Tarian. This serie celebrates color: bursts of light for a Pop parenthesis, a subtle combination of two-tone acetate for men and women.
Jeremy invites you to meet eyewear and ceramics, two of his great passions that led him to create these unique sunglasses; the union of the noble material titanium, crafted in Japan, and fragments of colorful ceramics from far-away lands, that truly make the eyewear exceptional pieces. Welcome to his joyful mess where handmade creations are beautifully imperfect and familiarize with happenstance.
Celebrating materials’ simplicity and our love for uniqueness
TARIAN spotlights craft’s natural raw materials: clays, enamels, acetate and metals. Ornamental and useful, both his glasses and ceramics are designed and crafted in keeping with craft’s traditions: small series, natural materials, meticulous care for details and the beauty of handmade creations. In his Parisan studio, an old stable in Haut-Marais, Paris, Jeremy can fully explore colors, mixes of acetate shavings for my eyewear, combinations of pigmented clays form marbled ceramics. Eyewear frames are traditionally made and assembled in both France (Jura) and Japan and the ceramics are individually handmade in his studio.
Jeremy composed timeless paintings of places with evocative charm in his hometown, Paris. His trust in the abundance of strong and contrasting colors is where steel and acetate merge harmoniously. He was seduced by the intense colors and graphic lines of the solar architecture inspired by the great Luis Barragán the 1990s. Jeremy gathered his best memories with this new collection – GRAPHIC – Metal worked in volume mixed with acetates and bright tones.
As a child Jeremy was already taller than his classmates, had a long nose and suffered from high degree myopia. The need for glasses was felt early on. After studying Finance, he went back to his first passion: creation. Indeed, it all started when Jeremy was just 10 years old, when his mum had the brilliant idea to enroll him on a ceramic course at the Ateliers du Carrousel du Louvre because he didn’t enjoy sports as much as much as the other boys did. The passion still lives on 20 years down the line. Trained at New York’s Parsons School of Design, Jeremy gained experience at ic! Berlin before naturally launching my own brand, Tarian, in 2010, to design his own creations. Jeremy loves colors and raw materials: mixes of acetate shavings for my eyewear, combinations of pigmented clays form marbled ceramics. His world revolves around the commingling of these two passions.
