When highly-acclaimed ceramic powerhouse Heath Ceramics pairs up with a local artist, you pay attention. And when that local artist is none other than Los Angeles-based artist Geoff McFetridge, you really listen up.
Thus, the latest collaboration between Heath Ceramics and Geoff McFetridge is one for the stars. Debuting in Los Angeles with a show entitled My Head Disappears When My Hands Are Thinking, the new line features graphic illustrations on timeless clay. A perfect combination, yes?

A few months ago, Stephanie Shum of Muhs Home was kind enough to share a preview of her new online shop with me. I instantly fell in love with her carefully curated products. “Muhs” pronounced like “muse” (how fitting is this for our blog?!) is Stephanie’s last name spelt backwards. There’s a sense of “ease” to everything that she handpicked for the store. So important to bring that sense to our everyday living, don’t you think? Just simple, smart, timeless pieces. Each product you see came from Stephanie scouting across Japan and Europe, searching for local designers and makers with exceptional craftsmanship and love for their craft. Congratulations on a fabulous opening Stephanie!
ALiCE porcelain dinnerware
Stephanie found this line while browsing through neighborhood stores in Copenhagen. Muhs Home is the first US retailer of the ALiCE line!
Midori brass label accessories
I particularly love the label plate, so smart. And the endless use of baker’s twine…
Kami wood cups
At the Takahashi Kougei workshop in Hokkaido, Stephanie received a demonstration of how they turn each cup individually, just to get it down to the right thickness. She added, “And when Mr. Takahashi handed me the cup from the lathe, it was still warm!” How amazing is that?
Frame brass bottle opener
I’m constantly searching for the perfect bottle opener, think I may have just found it.
Yoshii two-tone chambry towels
Terry on one side, and a soft chambray on the other… heaven!
