It’s always fun to hear from my peeps back home so when Jill Rosenwald told me about her studio and recent open gallery event, I was excited for her and to see her space. It’s very inspiring, often I find the process of something more fascinating than the end result though in this case, both process and finished product are equally lovely. Jill is a ceramicist, one I’ve told you about a few times before, who not only creates and sells to stores but also maintains an etsy shop. Here is a glimpse of her world, a day in the life of Switch/Jill Rosenwald Studio located at 369 Congress Street in Boston — a studio for both Jill Rosenwald and her husband, Lawrence McRae.
Doesn’t this environment inspire you to make something? How about this weekend… if you can set aside time to make just one thing, why not give it a whirl? A cake, a small painting, a sketch, anything really…

Crazy about ceramics? I recently discovered the small porcelain maker Jung Porzellan in Berlin and immediately thought about you and that perhaps you’d like to learn about them. Each piece is handcrafted in their studio so no two are alike, and from what I’ve noticed, it seems they enjoy designing well made, beautiful items that have a bit of a sense of humor to them. That really came shining through when I saw their banana holder, which you can hang in the kitchen from the ceiling. :)

Samantha Robinson’s enticing collection of porcelain makes me so happy this morning! I am hoping that I can find some of it locally because I have my eyes on a few vases that I’d love to own. Samantha is a young, talented potter who lives in Australia and works from her studio in Bondi and sells her wares along with fresh flowers once weekly at a local marketplace. This lady allows her emotions and inspirations to dictate how a piece will turn out; she claims that often she’ll sit before her wheel not exactly knowing what will result. Why don’t you take a look…
Samantha is also a lover of handmade products, purchasing handmade for herself and friends. Her creations are eye-catching and while skillfully made they feel organic and laid back. Each is clearly infused with her love of nature and texture.
