Hello Friends! I'm having my annual 'Open Studio and Seconds Sale' on Sunday, December 18th, 11am - 2pm. I will have my usual assortment of discounted seconds (I'm trying something new: I'll put half out at 11 and half out at 12:30) as well as many, many, many other pots (see below). It will be inside, but I'll keep the door wide open. As always, kids are welcome!

If you can't make it, don't hesitate to come visit by appointment another time. The seconds will only be available at the studio sale, but I have lots of other pieces to choose from. Please email me at kate@hollowwork.com and come on by!

There will be a bunch of bowls, graffiti mugs, flower mugs, rainbow mugs, regular mugs, planters, plates, vases, and little fragile things to keep on your shelf for dust collection.

Hope to see you!

These beautiful planters are my latest collaboration with Tiffanni Reidy, and the pre-sale is going live on Friday, June 25th!


For our planter release we've partnered with The Greenhouse at Good Neighbor in Baltimore. They're a local business with an amazing design eye whose plants we absolutely adore.


During the pre-sale, pots will be sold with plants of a proper size that you can have potted at pickup. If you're from out of town and you've got to have a pot, please send us an email. We currently don't have the ability to ship plants.

The pre-sale goes live at ghatgn.com on June 25th and you can pick up your pots (and plants) between Friday July 2nd July 4th at The Greenhouse at Good Neighbor.


Follow @reidycreative @hollowworkceramics and @thegreenhousebaltimore on Instagram for reminders throughout the week.


A little about the planters: The stunning designs, by Tiffanni Reidy are inspired by mud cloth patterns. Each piece is handmade / hand carved from terracotta clay and includes a drainage hole and dish. Because they're hand thrown, pieces will have slight variations in shape, color, and texture. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor use but not recommended for freezing temperatures; and because terracotta is porous, if planted directly in the pot, the pieces will develop a natural patina over time due to water and soil salts. For cleaning, use a vinegar and water solution. Baltimore native Tiffanni Reidy is a multihyphenate creative whose work ranges in and between interior architecture, creative direction, graphic design, photography, and publication design. Her interior architecture work takes an emphasis on renovation design in both the commercial and residential realms, while her collaborative projects include creative direction and a focus on local craftsmanship.

 

When we released our mug collection, we had no idea it would be so popular. THANK YOU! We were blown away that the mugs sold out in three days, and we're still getting messages asking when they'll be back.(Don't worry, they will!). Our planters were already in the kiln lineup, and it was important to us that we got them released during the summer when gardening was in full swing, so they came out before the mugs, but we'll have them available by the time cool weather rolls in again. Tiffanni and I love working on custom ceramic wares, and we're currently developing other collections together. Stay tuned and happy summer!
