Each Purchase, Meaningful
As a crafts-person I naturally value the investment of time and skill that goes into making something by hand. As an independent startup, I also value the opportunity to make a sustainable living, a struggle in this country, even with all it's privileges. Too often, unrealistic expectations of what things should cost divorce the object from the maker. In my studio / showroom I sell my own hand crafted dinnerware alongside beautiful things made by other local artisans and a select group of overseas makers, represented by mission based businesses and non-profit organizations, which provide artisans in areas of extreme poverty an opportunity to earn a dignified living and fair wage.
Together we put a face and story behind objects we consume.
the Pottery Shop
In my studio and showroom I stock my pottery, when available, as well as carefully selected items from local and international artisans represented by Fair Trade businesses and non-profit organizations that I support. Here I have posted some of my favorite items currently available in the shop and available for purchase.
I am proud to be an Ambassador for Noonday Collection. We partner with talented artisan entrepreneurs across the globe to make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. By developing artisan businesses through fair trade, we empower them to grow sustainably and to create dignified jobs for people who need them. Together we’re building a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected.
