I won't bury the lead: Artist Original Cheeseboards are launching today, 4/12 at 3 PM EST! This is one of our top preforming designs and it's clear why-- they're SO pretty and versatile!
This mini assortment (there are only six!) was made entirely by me start to finish and glazed with my signature watercolor, handmade glazes, and then finished with 22k gold glittery splatters. It's an addition to your collection that you won't want to miss! And with only six available these will go fast!
Now, what about these tiles?! If you've been following along on Instagram the past few months you've probably seen these porcelain tiles making appearances as they're gradually made, glazed, and fired. I seem to always have some sort of on-the-side project happening in the studio that I'm working on just because I want to, and right now it's all about these tiles. My goal is to make enough of them to tile a wall in my studio-- or at the very least a portable surface for photos! If all goes well I plan to make simple, organic white porcelain tiles for my eventual kitchen renovation too.
The reaction toward these tiles has been incredibly encouraging so I decided to take a similar approach to glazing this latest batch of handmade cheeseboards. Each board is cut and shaped by hand so they're all totally unique and one of a kind! The glazes are expertly applied to create that covetable watercolor finish-- and then of course the gold because... it's gold! Who doesn't need a little more sparkle in their lives?
Also releasing this week is our brand new glaze, Wisteria. It's a super subtle purple with a faint gray-ish pink tint that makes it nearly a neutral on the table, except way more fun. We'll have a wide variety of products debuting in this color way this Sunday. This Limited Edition collection will release primarily on Pre-Order so we'll be custom glazing every piece just for you the moment your order is placed! (Love those pretty rings? They were gifted to me by RCHL my new wearable everywhere/everyday jewelry obsession)

Limited Editions: March is All About Mint! // The Inspiration + Glaze Chemistry to Make This Color Happen!
This month we're bringing back one of our most popular glazes of all time, Mint! This light green glaze reminds me of the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea and instantly makes me want to book a trip back to Mexico.
Along the coast of Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Cozumel this palette of pale, watery turquoise and sunlit gold is a way of life. When I designed this month's Limited Edition collection my thoughts drifted back to Mexico with ease. Taking a look through photos of that trip and the visual connections are clear-- powder white sand (porcelain) reflecting a warm prism of sunlight (gold) and the aqua sea (mint glaze) that fades into the horizon.
Happy Holidays! Our 2018 limited edition handmade porcelain ornaments have hit the shop shelves!! This year's ornament designs are all about celebration and joy! I'm thrilled with the final result and the design process that lead us to these festive bottles of bubbly decked out in real 22k gold!
I began designing our 2018 ornaments over six months ago, and had more than a dozen variations throughout the prototyping process. Usually my design process is quicker, with fewer iterations but I was stumped on our 2018 ornaments. Admittedly, it's been a challenging year. We moved into our first commercial space in February and there has been a steep learning curve with that move. We took on overhead where we'd previously had none, hired our first employee, took on payroll, and the process of training our studio assistant all in a single blink. Turns out that's a lot to do at once. Duh, right? Then add into the equation that my commercial designs with Anthropologie are maturing, and we're working in the studio to keep our handmade line consistent yet fresh enough that it's exciting for us to make and for you to collect. Oh, and I started a brand new business, The Studio Source an online artist community with my friend and fellow artist, Allie Dattilio.
Okay so it was a big year with a lot of change, and I felt deeply in that change when I was designing. I think it's important to design work that truthfully resonates with my reality, trends I'm seeing, reactions I'm having in the present. How could I create an ornament that symbolized 2018... but in a positive, celebratory way? After all the changes are all good! They're big goals years in the making that were finally hit, and passion driven hardwork for future growth. Sure there challenging, and even hard at times but these are moments to celebrate! I can't think of a better way to have spent a year when I look at it that way.
Then it hit me: Bubbly. That's exactly the purpose champagne serves! We pop champagne to celebrate hard efforts that finally broke through to achievement! We deserve to celebrate, both the joy of the holiday season and our efforts this year!
Bubbly Ornaments are available in a classic green, black, and 22k gold Champagne bottle, and a rose pink, white, and 22k gold Rosé bottle! I hope you'll love them and their meaning just as much as I do! Click to shop here!
Something a little (okay, a lot) different was happening behind the scenes the past few months and it's finally ready to hit the shop! My adventures with brown stoneware, a clay about as different as it gets from our smooth white porcelain was well documented the past few months on instagram. I grabbed 50 pounds of this speckled brown clay on a whim and threw a collection of unique forms that all pushed me out of my comfort zone. Some a big, some tall, some curvy, so squat.. the challenge for this collection was to make something different without hesitation. What a challenge that was!
