Open Studio

I heard there are lots of cool coffee and tea folks in town for SCA Expo and The Chicago Tea Festival. I’ll be opening up my studio again from 4-7pm on Saturday and hope you can come and visit at 2154 W Hubbard St.

Our neighbors at Metric Coffee are hosting their Washed & Naturals event the same night and our studio is only three blocks away! Stop by on your way to their party (map is below). 

If you’re unfamiliar with my work, browse around to see if there’s anything you’d like to check out in-person. We have lots of wood fired work, tea ware, and cups. I hope to see you there!

Spring Gong Fu Tea Tasting

Saturday, May 4

I've been working on a petal-themed porcelain collection for my friend Jean Cate at Martha Mae. As part of our launch on May 4th, I'll be hosting a Spring Gong Fu Tea Tasting at the Center of Order and Experimentation. There will be room for twelve guests and each ticket includes a tasting sized petal tea cup.

You can read more about my approach to creating the collaboration here. If you want to drop into the launch but not the tasting, I'll be at the Center from 11am-3pm with our friends from Sugoi Sweets. They'll be selling their fresh mochi--the best in the city in my humble opinion.
