  부부 듀오의 창조적 추구로 시작된 것이 이제는 여러 점포 앞이 있는 번창하는 사업으로 꽃을 피웠다. 펜실베이니아주 피츠버그에 본사를 둔 Black 소유의 Tal & Bert는 생광물을 공업용 콘크리트로 조광 결정 형태로 혼합하여 작고 현대적인 캔들 홀더와 플랜터를 아름답게 만들어 주며, 다육제나 다른 식물 아기에게 이상적이다. 2020년에 시작한 지 1년 정도밖에 안 됐지만 홈스튜디오에서 불과 몇 달 만에 직원 15명, 스튜디오 2명, 전장점 1개 회사로 확장할 수 있는 엄청난 성공을 거뒀다.

 

 

남편과 아내 듀오 레이와 발 탈버트는 "우리는 자연에서 영감을 받은 기능적인 일상 예술을 창조하고 싶어서 탈 & 버트를 시작했다"며 "우리는 매우 야외에서 활동하는 커플"이라고 말했다. Tal & Bert는 생천연 광물과 공업용 콘크리트의 만남의 지점이다. 우리의 디자인은 손으로 부은 콘크리트로 만들어졌고, 손으로 작은 덩어리로 조각되었다. 우리 작품은 일본 와비사비 철학에서 영감을 받아 미를 불완전함에서 찾는다. 

 

우리는 콘크리트의 균열과 파손을 이용하여 우리가 채굴하는 광물로부터 영감을 받은 디자인으로 만든다 우리는 콘크리트의 산업적 외관이 우리가 사용하는 광물의 날염하고 거칠기 때문에 일치한다고 생각한다."

What started out as the creative pursuit of a husband and wife duo has now blossomed into a booming business with multiple storefronts. A Black-owned business based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Tal & Bert fuses raw minerals in the form of geode crystals with industrial concrete to create beautifully minimal and modern candle holders and planters—perfect for succulents or any of your other plant babies. Though they only started about a year ago in 2020, they have seen enormous success, which allowed them to expand from their home studio into a company with 15 employees, two studios, and a brick-and-mortar storefront in only a few short months.

 

 

“We started Tal & Bert because we wanted to create functional everyday art inspired by nature,” husband and wife duo, Ray and Val Talbert, tells My Modern Met. “We are a very outdoorsy couple. Tal & Bert is the meeting point of raw natural minerals and industrial concrete. Our designs are made from hand-poured concrete that has been sculpted by hand in small batches. Our work is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, finding the beauty in imperfections. We take the cracks and breakages in the concrete and turn them into designs inspired by the minerals we mine. We believe that the industrial look of concrete matches the raw, roughness of the minerals we use.”

 

Set to move their headquarters and open an additional brick-and-mortar storefront in 2021, Tal & Bert is still expanding and growing, while elevating other Black and minority-owned businesses with them. At their storefronts, you won’t only find their chic concrete and geode designs but also other hand-selected home goods from small businesses and makers around the country.

Every piece is sculpted and finished by hand from poured concrete, which adds a unique touch to each individual vessel.
