On a recent trip to L.A I was welcomed to visit Peter Shire‘s wonderful studio in Echo Park. The entire space was filled with ingenious projects still in progress and with an accumulation of useful objects creating a very organic and inviting environment where beautiful ceramics and one-of-a-kind furnitures were being made. I would like to thank everyone for their generosity and in particular Peter’s wife, Donna for showing me every little corner and telling me anecdotes behind every single pieces!
Los Angeles artist and lady friend Bari Zipperstein (Bzippy & Co) has launched her new online shop of radical housewares! We love her handmade vases, lamps and coasters!

Please join us this evening for the opening of Morgan Peck’s new ceramic work Half Stack. Wine and schmoozing starts at 7:00pm.
Morgan Peck, Los Angelina ceramic artist, will be making a bay area cameo at the shop with her new work Half Stack. She will be here with clay bells on for the opening party Friday October 12th but the show will be up through November 9th. I for one have been admiring the pieces I have seen of hers at IKO IKO and Mochiun for sometime now, so when the opportunity arose to have her ceramic slabs on our table, boy oh boy, you bet I jumped like a jelly fish into a full triple-toe-arabesque-loop-heel-flip-ollie-back-front-gater-later pose in triumphant glee! Mark you calendars and come on down for the opening and be sure to snag up one of her lego-like sculptures before she heads back south. Check out more of her work here and here.

Cliff (A Potter) is a hardworking man.
From the studio, they can look out at the forest and up at nice posters.
Here’s a look at Cliff’s admittedly he-ish bowls—
And Marion’s lovely, clearly she-ish bowl—
After a long day of work in the studio, these lucky two get to work out the clay beneath the redwoods.
We are delighted to be able to offer a selection of Cliff’s stoneware at the shop. We have small salad bowls, larger serving bowls, and mugs in right now, and we’ll put a few of the mugs up for sale on the website as well. They’re a real pleasure to behold and an even greater pleasure to use. Here they are taking in the astounding sight of Greenwood Cove.
WOW! I just came across Laura Carlin‘s ceramic work. What a joy! Time to bust out the paint box.
