Featured in The Kindcraft

Lauren Lancy, Founder & Creative Director of The Kindcraft, interviewed me this month for a maker profile on her website. The Kindcraft is an online magazine celebrating the makers of traditional arts and contemporary craft. Lauren and I chatted about how I got started crafting ceramics and what inspires me. She also asked me about the difference between the creative communities in Austin versus San Francisco and how my cultural heritage plays out in my work. To read the story, click here.

I also created a capsule collection that launched with the story with a few products that are exclusively available on The Kindcraft's website. Check out my entire story as well as other makers' stories on The Kindcraft!
