Artist Stephen Antonson is the city’s go-to plaster artisan. With his bold handmade furniture and lighting, Antonson has taken up where 1930s plaster artists Serge Roche, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean-Michel Frank left off. When I learned he had set up shop in a new Gowanus studio right next door to his old one, I went to pay a visit.
