There’s three big opportunities to snag pottery gifts this season, if you’re interested! SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3 : holiday sale at Dusen Dusen’s studio in Williamburg with pals Cold Picnic! I won’t have many ‘seconds’ but I’ll be offering special in-person pricing ADDRESS: 178 Hope street from 2-6pm TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5 : huge webshop […]
The short story:
I’m launching a new piece to my webshop today! It’s an everyday bowl, the type of dish I like to eat every meal out of at home, instead of a plate. It’s made from a warm brown stoneware, measures 8″ x 2″, and is dishwasher and microwave safe. It’s available in Ocean (blue swirl) or Squid (black swirl). Click here to shop!
Now, for the long story…
Join illustrator Leah Goren and me for an evening of plate painting in my studio! June 15, 6:30 – 9:30 pm. All painting supplies including brushes and underglaze will be provided, along with wine, snacks, and floral arrangements to draw from. Each guest will receive a blank stoneware dinner plate to paint on. After the workshop your plate will be glazed with a clear food-safe glaze and will be shipped to you. Shipping is included with the price of the workshop. If you would like to paint more than one plate additional plates are available for purchase at the event.
Tickets can be purchased HERE.
Hope to see you there!
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 […]
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.
I made some special pieces for a Valentine’s themed pop-up at The Primary Essentials — there will be a little party on Thursday night and the collection will be available for sale all weekend long.

I’ve been working for months on a collection of work commissioned by Bruichladdich. Last summer I went on a road trip from New York to New Mexico, making stops all along the way to visit the factories that produce my clay and glazes, meet other potters, and collect raw materials that I was hoping to […]
Helen Levi Ceramics is spending the coldest months of the year in Los Angeles! Production will continue with a focus on exploring high temperature gas firings. Looking forward to sharing the new work with you, and picking back up with my full catalogue of work in New York in April.
Fresh on the heels of my all-American road trip, I went to Islay, Scotland, to visit the folks at Bruichladdich and learn about their process. I discovered an incredible landscape and the warmest community of people, as well as the most handsome cows I’ve ever seen. Here’s a few snaps from film, more to come…
