I could not be more excited to share that my good friend Dusen Dusen (home goods and textile designer extraordinaire) and I are renting a storefront in Manhattan during Design Week and hosting a pop up show and shop! We're creating an immersive installation showcasing our new collections, along with special collaborative pieces made specifically for the space. Open to the public, no appointment necessary :-)
I'm very excited to be hosting another Empty Bowls-style dinner, coming up on January 16! There are sister events all over the country during that week (in Oakland, Cleveland, Kansas City, and Athens GA), in anticipation of the inauguration, with all proceeds donated to local organizations who provide protection to groups who will need it under the next administration.
Included in the ticket price is a three course meal, very good wine, and a bowl to keep from one of 47 east coast potters. There are three seatings, and tickets can be purchased here:
So many wonderful people have gotten involved, and I'm so grateful! Hosted by Vinegar Hill House with Mission Chinese, with wine provided by Wenzlau Vineyard.
Thank you so much to Design*Sponge for sharing some of the beautiful photos Andrea Gentl and Martin Hyers took of my studio!
Holy cow, I'm in GLAMOUR!
Last winter I was experimenting with making ceramic candlestick holders. They were really fun to make, but challenging to get them to survive all the firing steps, and time consuming too. After realizing they would end up retailing at too high a price point to really make sense, I got the idea to make the candlestick into the candle itself. What followed was several months of trying to DIY something that was really above my pay grade, and then finding a couple of experts who could actually make the idea come to life.
1-4pm at 201 Richards street in Red Hook
Dinner plates, beeswax candles, tree planters, Beach series pieces, and lots of seconds!
Hope to see you there <3
