This September we were lucky enough to add four new folks to our shop… We're so excited to be growing our family of makers, and we can't wait for you to meet them. Before you shop their wares, learn a bit about the people behind the goods.
Tiny Cloud Ceramics
Tiny Cloud Ceramics are one of a kind kitschy-cute functional wares. Mary was born and raised in Akron, getting her BFA in Ceramics in 2016 from UA. She’s very influenced by the kawaii movement in Japan, sometimes juxtaposing rude phrases with the sweet designs and script lettering. Her hyper-cute pieces fit a unique aesthetic of kawaii style mixed with 50's-esque surface design that is both fun and functional. She won “Best Coffee Mugs” for Cleveland Magazine's 2016 Best in Cleveland issue. All work is hand thrown and sgraffitoed in her Akron studio.
Sweet Dish & Darling
We started this little venture as a way to explore the creative and scientific art of candlemaking. We set our sights on finding a better burning candle with the hope of expressing ourselves through custom blended artisnal fragrances and handmade packaging. Over the years, our palate for scents has matured and we've grown into new sophisticated blends of tobacco leaf and leather, or notes of teak, ginger and cedar. With the continued support of our fans and growing popularity we've been able to upgrade fragrances with essential oils and now use a blend of these and the highest quality fragrances to make amazing scents that make will make you grin and roll your eyes to the side in contained joy.
