We are honored to have local artists, whose work compliments our furniture, on display. Currently we have a couple of local ceramic artists and a floral designer selling their work at the store. These artists continually bring new work to share with us, so come by to see what is new. Below are a few samples of their work.
We are thrilled to sell curated plants from Tess MacDonald, owner of July Floral. Tess grew up on Capitol Hill and is passionate about working closely with local businesses and home owners. She attributes her love for beauty, design, form and botanicals to an upbringing both in the garden and ballet studio. She is available to create custom work for any event, intimate or large, and to provide interior floral and plant services for ongoing enjoyment. For larger orders or additional information, please feel free to contact Tess directly at (206) 412-3938 or through her website www.julyfloraldesign.com.
Peter Avriett took ceramics classes in college and traveled to Japan to study under renowned artist, Toyoda Mokuguen. Peter's work strikes a balance between the Asian influence from his time studying under Toyoda, and a Pacific Northwest style. The majority of Peter's work is fired in a wood fire kiln, located in Index, WA. He is an art teacher at a local middle school.
Don Carlson loves creating pieces that people will enjoy using in their home. He particularly enjoys experimenting with different textures and how they interact with his pieces. Don is the past chair of the Seward Park Clay Studio, where he continues to take classes. He fires his work in a gas kiln.
