Four years ago I did something that made me nervous. I had this great pink glaze formula I'd finally mastered (learn about my favorite glaze making resources here) and I was already working with gold and making dessert plates, but I'd never combined these elements into one design. On a whim I did it. I added swirls of my pink glaze to the organic form of my dessert plates and painted a wavering gold line onto the plate's rim. When that first set came out of the kiln I knew I was onto something! This is a screenshot of that first set shared on instagram back when using filters was the thing to do on instagram, because artsy!
This design changed everything. Millennial Pink was about to start its ascension and these plates spoke to the resurgence of well made, thoughtfully designed products made by artists preferred over mass production and anonymity. Opportunities, interviews, magazine features, design licensing, you name it.. many of my favorite moments in my business came from this singular moment of trusting my gut and creating something I wanted to buy but that didn't exist. Since then this plate has become synonymous with the Suite One Studio brand!
