Long-distance creative collaborators Mikel Durlam (Brooklyn) and Ethan Kruszka (St. Paul) recently created the Lost Camp, a limited-edition line of functional design objects. The artists’ first collection includes a series of two-sided porcelain objects, each with a functional side (a gold-luster bowl) and a decorative side (the dingo pictured, as well as a coconut or life-size goat head). • $498 @ Pharmacie
