The Thing Quarterly was an artist-run publication in the form of objects.

The Thing Issue 29 is a porcelain egg cup by LA-based artist Ricky Swallow.  It was conceived alongside Swallow's  Shaker bell, a limited edition project for THE THING. The starting point for both objects was the shaker peg, originally designed by Shakers to adhere to their guiding principals of simplicity, utility, and honesty.  

THE THING and Swallow worked closely with North Carolina-based ceramic studio Haand to create a precise mold of the cardboard form.  Using traditional craft methods, the studio then produced the final porcelain objects in a limited run of 700.
