CERAMIC WORK AND I HAVE A LONG PAST. IT IS TRULY MY FAVORITE ART FORM, AND I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT FOR BOTH THE FORM AND ITS MAKERS. I HAD TO TAKE CERAMICS ONE IN ART SCHOOL THREE TIMES BEFORE PASSING, SO I DEEPLY APPRECIATE THE ART FORM AND TALENT THAT GOES INTO IT.

 MY TEAM AND I WORKED WITH SEATTLE CERAMICIST NATASHA ALPHONSE, WITH WHOSE WORK AND ENERGY I TRULY RESONATE, AND CREATED A LINE OF FUNCTIONAL WARES INSPIRED BY WHAT I LOVE TO USE AT HOME AND FOR OUR CLIENTS. SIMPLE BUT ELEGANT PIECES, THAT ELEVATE THE DAILY ROUTINE.

THE GLAZES USED ARE OF THE DEEPEST OF OCEAN BLUE THAT REFERENCE MY LIFE ON BOTH COASTS. THE WHITE GLAZE CALLED LICHEN GLAZE IS HAND PAINTED ON THE PIECES, WITH VARYING THICKNESS AFFECTING HOW THE CRACKLE PATTERNS OCCUR, REPRESENTING THE SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAINS THAT SURROUND US IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. 

I HOPE THAT YOU WILL ENJOY THESE PIECES AS YOU USE THEM FOR YEARS TO COME, SLOWING DOWN JUST A MOMENT AS YOU HAVE COFFEE, OR ENJOY A MEAL.

CHEERS,

BRIAN
