Summer Lovin’


We’re taking a well-deserved Summer-brainstorming-break.

The store will be closed until Aug 15.

We will re-open and re-stock our products – we can’t wait to share our new ideas with you!

See you in a couple of weeks.

Thursday Inspiration – Toshiko Takaezu



“In my life I see no difference between making pots, cooking and growing vegetables. They are all so related. However, there is a need for me to work in clay. It is so gratifying and I get so much joy from it, and it gives me many answers in my life.”

Toshiko Takaezu (June 17, 1922 – March 9, 2011)

Toshiko Takaezu was Born in 1922 in Pepeekeo, Hawaii. Her closed vessels and asymmetrical forms blend Eastern and Western traditions, recalling the landscape of her native Hawaii; the scale and drama of her pots demand an intimate participation from the viewer. -American Craft Council
