On the wall of Adam Silverman's 5-year-old Atwater Pottery studio in Atwater Village--hanging beside Magic Marker drawings by his daughters and maps of Ibiza and Block Island--is a silver Mexican milagro in the shape of a hand. The talisman is just one of many hand-themed gifts from his wife, Louise Bonnet, which remind him of the importance of using his hands. "It's integral to who I am," says the potter, who also has a tattoo of Le Corbusier's "Monument of the Open Hand" on his right forearm.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Friday ordered a construction company official from Newport Beach to spend 60 days in jail and pay a $5,000 fine for illegally transporting and disposing of hazardous wastes during the 1988 demolition of an Atwater Village pottery factory. Al Sesar was convicted in October of a felony hazardous waste violation after cancer-causing asbestos was released into the air during its unauthorized removal from the defunct Franciscan Ceramics plant.

BLEND INTERIORS, an L.A. outpost of a Paris-based design gallery, has opened with a combination of aged industrial pieces (steel factory lights, work cabinets), pedigreed midcentury designs (plaster torchiers by Serge Roche) and new designs by Eric Thevenot. "We think interiors that artfully blend old and new, different materials and contrasting styles work the best," Thevenot says. "It's about relying less on convention and more on inspiration."

Adam Silverman sits behind his pottery wheel, legs splayed and bent at the knee, right foot pressing the velocity pedal. His hair is wild, a thundercloud with thickly woven cyclones above skin the color of light desert sand. His arms are tattooed--here an anchor, there a peace sign, here a spider web--and with one hand he grabs a triangular-topped trimming tool and holds it against a damp brown pot.

"IT'S not bad at all, really," Linus van Pelt said of this dispirited Christmas tree. "Maybe all it needs is a little love." Certain to warm the heart of the most diffident teenagers and middle-aged humbuggers, this faithful replica of the not-so-spruced-up spruce from the 1965 Emmy Award-winning "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is already feeling the love at Urban Outiftters, its exclusive distributor in L.A.

The object of her inspection: A Madame Alexander doll wearing a felt dress with an embroidered spider. "This would be the perfect Christmas gift for Louise Bourgeois," she says of the artist known for monumental bronze spiders and currently featured in a MOCA show.
