Ian McDonald has come around with two fresh batches of is/was ties and New Naturals vessels. The ties are sewn here in San Francisco using vintage Japanese and now a few French fabrics here and there. The vessels are also made here in SF by Ian. The innovation this time was switching, in some places, to a primarily white clay body with the brown clay mixed in, rather than the other way around. Little changes, nice big differences.
My favorite customer question so far: “Are these goblets safe for drinking?” I’ve asked Ian, gentle Sir, and the answer is yes, but only for the right earthy clay hound pimp.
