I have some new work up at two of my favorite online stores based out of Minneapolis. Check them out!
I’m very excited about being featured in Food & Wine magazine’s Trendspotting section along with Foundry Home Goods!
My friend Jess Hirsch and I launched our new store today! http://www.powderhornkitchen.com/ It’s namesake is a sweet park in Minneapolis nearby where we both live and work. Jess has many beautiful hand-carved spoons among other things and I have some ceramics and tinctures to start. We will be adding things gradually. Please check it out!
I’ve been making “saint plates” for a while. Plates dedicated to saints and angels in my life. Filmmakers are some of my favorite saints. They show me a lot. Agnes Varda is one of them. If you haven’t seen “The Gleaners and I,” you really should. This is an old plate I made for her and I still love it. I’m not sure where it is now.
Santiago and Abrish were other saints worthy of plates.
So, I’ve decided to be more diligent about updating my blog. I’ve been making lots of things so I’ll be posting more images weekly.
I was inspired by an old yellow enamel cup I saw at a friend’s house.
I had the most amazing time at the Traditional Ways Gathering this year. I taught a class inspired by the book Finding One’s Way with Clay. We dug clay from a clay bed near the shore of Lake Superior and made sweet little pinch pots and other nature-inspired objects. I was able to take a few classes; including making a healing slave from wild plantain and yarrow and a late-night astronomy class, among others. The water was so cold and so cleansing. Total magic. http://www.traditionalways.org/
I am now selling my porcelain kitchen wares at The Foundry in Minneapolis! It is such a beautiful store filled with many things I would love to fill my house with.
