ARC is a concept, not a product: it is, at its core, a body of work that seeks to encourage mindfulness and individual creative expression. From jewelry to home objects, it is a collection that explores and experiments with wearable and functional sculpture. An arc is simultaneously a shape and a concept; similarly, ARC objects seeks to be both literal and figurative.
The collection is inspired by colors, textures, shapes, and sounds found in nature. It consists primarily of porcelain + metal pieces that bridge organic form with small-scale industrial production techniques. Materials are responsibly sourced to create seasonless, future-heirloom pieces that are bold in simplicity and made by hand in New York City.
Daniela Jacobs, designer behind the brand, is interested in a world that celebrates mindfulness; the beauty in small, transient moments in the every day; and creative fluency.

All ARC objects pieces are hand-made and require care as such– we recommend hand-washing the dishes and spot-cleaning the porcelain jewelry with a damp cloth. Metal pieces should be stored in a dry place and occasionally polished.
