We're very pleased to welcome Clam Lab into our store. Clam Lab is a line of handcrafted ceramics made in the Brooklyn Workshop of designer Clair Catillaz. Wheel thrown, hand sculpted and fire finished in hand-milled glaze: these ceramics will remain in your permanent collection for years to come.
On a recent trip to New York we had the opportunity to visit with Clair at her studio: a retrofitted live/work space that she and her partner built. Pottery is a messy endeavour, but they were able to build out an area to contain the splatters and dust that come with such an operation.
It's always a treat to visit the workspace of a craftsperson and get a glimpse at their overall process: Bisque fired bowls lined a shelf awaiting their glaze, fragments of color tested pieces of clay lay on a hutch while finished pieces and one-off shapes were stacked away in crates and cupboards.
Below is a selection of photos we shot during our visit. We now have the full line of ceramics available for purchase here.
