Triple Beam Dream - Ghetto Gastro & Nowness
Triple Beam Dream Meet the co-founder of Bronx-based culinary collective Ghetto Gastro, whose new glassware collection takes inspiration from the history of crack—featuring music by Solange
“This is a story of transformation and growth—from crack pipes to glass art,” says Elisha Smith-Leverock, the director shining a spotlight on Jon Gray, co-founder of Bronx-based culinary collective Ghetto Gastro. Working at the intersection of food, design and culture, Gray calls himself 'the dishwasher'—an unceremonious title that belies his part in disrupting the gourmet dining game.
In this Solange-soundtracked project produced by LIEF, Smith-Leverock traveled to Venice to meet Gray and a team of world-class glass artisans working on his first kitchenware collaboration.
