The studio was founded in 2011 as a space where designers can collaborate and create in a supportive and welcoming environment. This concept led to relocating my studio space to Open Works, a maker's space in the heart of Baltimore's Arts District where I continue to grow as a designer and be inspired by other creative artists and artisans. The journey to now has focused on designing a signature product line of tabletop and serveware. Moving forward, excited to collaborate with other makers, expanding my product line to include functional objets d'art for the home...stay tuned!
My goal is not to design for the masses, but produce carefully curated, limited edition collections. What is most important to me, though, is creating a wonderful experience for those who decide to invest in what I consider to be my 'art'. I want them to always know and feel the care that went into making their trusted purchase. For those with whom I collaborate, my hope is that my appreciation and respect for their talent is always expressed and received with heartfelt honesty. Please follow our progress and adventures on Instagram and Pinterest.
