This Just In: Workaday Handmade

  Artist and ceramicist Forrest Lewinger started Workaday Handmade as a potter's assistant, creating one work for himself every day to stoke his creative fire. But as his works accumulated, friends began asking for ceramics of their own to take home with them. Unable to part with the pieces he'd created on his lunch breaks, he began thinking about ways he could translate his conceptual ideas into functional pieces for his friends. Over time, his work morphed into everyday forms likes bowls, mugs, and cups - something his friends could use in lives rather than set on a shelf. True to...

Group Partner: Irreverent Ceramics

Isaac Nichols of Group Partner started crafting hand-made “boob” planters in May of 2013 on a whim. Selling his first batch off his front stoop, he saw an opportunity. Once images of those pots were on Instagram, the Brooklyn based carpenter was greeted with an outpouring of positive feedback.
