It still amazes me how much moisture the studio retains when we get even a little rain (to be fair, it was a proper downpour this morning!), so I’m hopping from pot to pot, outlining here, carving there, while ramen bowls dry on the cart, all the while boldly believing these will dry in time for one last bisque before I start glazing later this week. . . . . #crazygreenstudios   #slowclay   #sgraffito   #carvingclay   #vincentseries   #lagunaclay   #ramenbowls   #rolledbowls   #piccalillila   #individualhandmadedesign   #garritytools   #diamondcoretools   #avlpotters   #828isgreat❤️   #thevillagepottersclaycenter  

Meditative Sunday vibes. Work continues to finish up the pots bound for Piccalilli in California, but also to keep piggies stocked for the busy season at Curate. I’ve talked about my stellar team in the Piggery (and Sheeple corral!), and I’m so happy to have them churning out probably my cutest design ever, but they actually get to take time off now and then, and that’s when I get to jump back in. So while Julia gets some well deserved R&R at the beach with family, I get to keep piggie balls cranking ( thingsotherpeopledontsayatwork ) and enjoy the meditative nature of throwing little closed forms off the mound, grateful that they continue to be cherished mementos from a favorite restaurant, and that I have my stellar team who keep them stocked! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #crazygreenstudiospiggeryandsheeplecorral   #curatetapasbar   #pigsofinstagram   #piccalillila   #avlpotters   #avlmade   #wheelthrownpottery   #lagunaclay   #individualhandmadedesign  

A harmonious mix of bright grapefruit, Sichuan peppercorn, glazed peanuts and cilantro flower, our Snapper Crudo is a vibrant dish that explores endless flavor. #PiccalilliLA⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠   #newrestaurant   #comingsoon   #losangeles   #instafood   #lafood   #feedfeed   #culvercity   #infatuationla   #latimesfood   #chefplateform   hungryinla ⁠ #onthetable   #eatyourcolors   #eeeeeats   #forkyeah   #plating   #foodstyling   #foodphotography   #f52grams   #beautifulcuisines   #vscofood   #finedining

Yes, I make the pots, box the pots, pallet the pots, and put them on the truck. Handing over the first delivery to the fine folk at R&L Carriers to make its way to California in time for the opening of Piccalilli LA! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #avlpotters   #828isgreat❤️   #piccalillila   #randlcarriers   #avlmade   #fullservicepotter   #safejourneys   #avlmadeinla   #individualhandmadedesign  

We have completed The Piccalilli Palette Packing Party, part 1!!! My whole team has contributed to getting me to this point, and extra deep appreciation for Emily as my star slabber, template cutter, glaze prepper, pot cleaner, Kiln unloader, and box packer Supreme. These lovelies will be picked up on Tuesday for a four-day trip to California, and I shall be barely breathing until I hear the hoots of joy on their arrival. Stand by, Piccalilli- pots are coming!! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #piccalillila   #chefpottercollaboration   #avlmade   #avlpotters   #lagunaclay   #828isgreat❤️   #wheelthrownpottery   #ittakesavillage   #thevillagepottersclaycenter   #handbuiltpottery   #ilovemyjob   #individualhandmadedesign   #wescoverapp  

This week I’ll finish packing up the first portion of pots headed to Piccalilli LA for their opening next month, and I am already so excited by the exquisite foods gracing my pots, including this reversible bowl. . . . . #crazygreenstudios   #piccalillila   #chefpottercollaboration   #avlmade   #avlpotters   #reversiblebowl   #ropetexture   #individualhandmadedesign  

It was a lot of fun, a lot of sun, and a lot of food enjoying different parts of @chowchow_avl the last couple of days, but there’s one more bisque load and time to set up so I can glaze all the pots, now that our gas is back! . . . . #crazygreenstudios   #avlpotters   #avlmade   #greenware   #lagunaclay   #potsforeveryone   #curatetapasbar   #avlcoffeeexpo   #multikilnopeningcelebration   #womenofinfluence   #piccalillila   #thevillagepottersclaycenter   #individualhandmadedesign  

Getting Broth Lab to go means I get the pleasure of pouring in the broth and marveling at all the incredible flavors coming together. It also means breaking out the ramen bowl I’m making for Piccalilli- if itsramenish it works, too! . . . . #homemadetastesbetteronhandmade   #ramentastesbetterinhandmade   #ramenishtastesbettertoo   #brothlabavl   #rolledbowls   #piccalillila   #potterfuel

Heirloom tomato season is still going strong, and we're serving up the finest we can get our hands on with tender octopus, garlic breadcrumbs and Thai basil, all bathed in rich black vinegar sauce. #PiccalilliLA⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠   #newrestaurant   #comingsoon   #losangeles   #lafood   #theartofplating   #chefsofinstagram   #instafood   #foodphotography   #finedining   #foodstagram   #chefstalk   #instachef   #gourmetartistry   #beautifulcuisines⁠   #heirloomtomato   #eatlocal   #gastronomy  

Making some larger bowls for the Multi-Kiln opening next month, and throwing B Mix/wood for the first time in a while, and it’s so sexy! Wanted to stay another hour or two, but the ever flaring tendonitis is reminding g me to pace myself and be patient. Fingers crossed we’ll have gas by the end of the week and all new pots will dry so I can fire it all up next week. September firings are for inventory, Piggies for Curate and Chow Chow, Coffee Expo, the Multi-Kiln Opening and Women of Influence, which will likely have me begging space from others in their firings. Once we’re all caught up from our pre-gas loss firings, I’ll finish up the Piccalilli pots plus start organizing for the new year production, which is fairly booked through first quarter for commissions, and I am grateful and jazzed!! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #lagunaclay   #bmixwood   #makeallthepots   #avlpotters   #828isgreat❤️   #multikilnopeningcelebration   #womenofinfluence   #thevillagepottersclaycenter   #chowchowavl   #makersmarket   #avlcoffeeexpo   #curatetapasbar   #piccalillila   #ilovemyjob   #chefpottercollaboration   #individualhandmadedesign  

So exciting to see previews of more stunning dishes that will be gracing my pots at Piccalilli LA. If you’re in the LA area, I believe they’ll be opening at the end of September. And if you want to go back when I come out to see them, let me know and we’ll all go! in the meantime... look at this gorgeous plate! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #piccalillila   #socalfood   #newrestaurant   #chefpottercollaboration   #avlmade   #828isgreat❤️   #individualhandmadedesign

More stacks out of the kiln for @piccalillila - if you’re not already, give them a follow and see some glimpses of what’s coming to Culver City when they open this Fall. In other news, we found out that nearby gas line work will cut off our kiln fuel for possibly the next several weeks, so I’ll just be here making pots and stacks of bisque, and starting on all the pots I’ll be carving for the “Women of Influence” exhibit at The Village Potters Clay Center in October. When the gas comes back on, there’s gonna be a hella lotta firings around here! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #goodfiring   #chefpottercollaboration   #piccalillila   #avlpotters   #whyfretwhatyoucantcontrol   #keepmakingpots   #womenofinfluence   #thevillagepottersclaycenter   #grateful   #ilovemyjob   #individualhandmadedesign

The kiln is loaded, and as I relax with a cool beverage, I do so with the greatest gratitude for my fabulous team and village- my studio mates who started bisque kilns for me or saw them fired out, my over the top fabulous team who kept piggies in production (can you count how many get loaded?), and team member Emily who stepped in to be my KB in getting the kiln loaded. My most cherished regular KB was under the weather, or you’d see him hefting all the shelves for me and carefully placing pots and piggies throughout. I’m also grateful for the work in progress for wonderful clients that has filled this kiln and will fill several more kilns before I finish their orders. . . . #crazygreenstudios   #kilnloading   #ittakesavillage   #ihavethebestteam   #chefpottercollaboration   #individualhandmadedesign   #tandemcarrboro   #piccalillila   #curatetapasbar   #avlpotters   #828isgreat❤️   #lagunaclay   #avlmade   #thevillagepottersclaycenter   #riverartsdistrictasheville   #radsouth   #craftyourlife

Bits from today’s kiln unload- lots of lovelies for clients, some new work for the gallery, and even some tests for future work.

A little behindthescenes in the studio. When a new form is being worked out, the early versions aren’t always pretty, but they hold much information and many lessons. This lovely bit of wonkiness will become the beautiful ‘rolled ramen’ bowls that will grace the tables of a new restaurant in California. Much like the recipes being tested and tasted by the chef (as seen in the second picture, in one of my ‘reversible bowls’), this form will be tested, and even used, before it gets cranked out in the next month. Stay tuned to watch it take shape! . . . #crazygreenstudios   #greenware   #lagunaclay   #avlmade   #piccalillila   #individualhandmadedesign   #chefpottercollaboration
