Featured in Anthology Magazine

This past weekend at Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco, I was fortunate enough to meet Cat Seto, an illustrator in San Francisco and owner of a small boutique shop in Russian Hill. Cat has an incredibly dynamic personality and has become a force in printed illustrations throughout the nation. 

She not only will be carrying my ceramic wares in her shop, but Cat also introduced me to Nancy Cho of Anthology Magazine, who featured me this week!  She loved my zodiac lanterns the most, which is exciting because they are currently my favorite product:

I have an addiction to buying ceramics and I’m not ashamed of it. I extend this obsession to purchasing ceramic gifts for my friends. Who doesn’t want a beautiful new ceramic vase, or tumbler, or planter?

I was introduced to Gopi Shah Ceramics when I was at the San Francisco Renegade Craft Fair last weekend, and her wares did not disappoint. Shah’s ceramic line launched last year after moving to Austin, Texas. She combines memories, nature, and modern elements in her designs. I love her hand-painted patterns, and was especially drawn to her clever Zodiac Lantern candle holders. Each piece represents a Zodiac sign with hand-drilled holes outlined in gold. When lit, the light shines through and reflects on nearby surfaces. A ceramic piece that can go from day to night? A perfect addition to any collection!

Thanks so much, Nancy! It was great to meet you!
