SECONDS SALE this Saturday 6/24

A few times a year I like to open up my studio and clear out all of my seconds (imperfect pieces), samples, and one-off pieces. Swing by Red Hook this Saturday so check out my stash! And maybe go get some BBQ after at Hometown :-) I'll have lots of Beach series, dog bowls, dinner plates, and more.

Potters in Protest dinner on January 16!

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.

Beeswax Candle Launch!

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.
