Chef Jay Booker

Yum! In collaboration w/ Feastly*,  photographer Aaron Lyles of Pixellab has been shooting a series of Chef portraits, and this one is around Chef Jay Booker. Sometimes, they use our ceramics and this time was a great fit.  I don't know much about Jay, excerpt that his food looks like what I'd like to eat at every meal ... check out the full series of photographs at

* "... Feastly is a growing community of eaters and chefs who want more from dining. Feasters seek authentic food, served around big tables with good people. They are adventurous, but remember their humble food beginnings. A Feaster may be just as excited about an inviting bowl of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich as she is for a goat roast. And, our chefs are a talented, hospitable group of food lovers with incredible abilities to turn their homes into warm, inviting spaces filled with the wonderful flavors and aromas of their favorite dishes ..."  - (excerpt from their website)

Tribali Foods Packaging

One late evening, I was looking for something in the frozen section of my local supermarket. My eyes kept sweeping the rows of prepared foods until they landed on a packaging that caught my attention. I thought Wait a minute, that bowl looks familiar! No! Is it ours? Turns out it was our Stillness Bowl on 2 out of 3 of their packaging ... the brand? Tribali Foods. What pleased me even more is that this is a product that is Organic, Non-GMO, that the animals were grass-fed, raised without hormones or antibiotics ... so if you eat meat, those are really important points ... so I'm always a huge supporter of good sense! And yes, I bought some and cooked them that night ... how could I resist.

Thanks for using us!

Humble Hummus

We had the pleasure of meeting blogger Sharon Brenner of Record in the Den when she came to the studio to shoot  a hummus recipe that was probably one of the best I've ever had ... I think the interview was never in the cards but after talking for a little bit, I think we were both inspired (while eating her delicious hummus) ... and here is what she wrote below!

" The first time I met Delphine I wasn't actually meeting Delphine. I came across Humble Ceramics when I was browsing to make a big adult purchase of ceramics, and was immediately struck by her sandstone plates; the warm colors, the earthy exposed texture of the clay, the simplicity of the lines and shapes, the wide open spaces...they felt perfectly minimalist yet still full of character.

When I visited Delphine at her studio, I was silently shocked by how perfectly I had been drawn to her work without even knowing it.  Between entering the studio door under a fig tree to the desert tones that she described had inspired the pieces I purchased, I knew our meeting was more than coincidence. In that conversation I understood that Delphine's connection to her work is universes beyond a passion for pottery and growing a business. Humble's pieces are indeed a direct reflection of something intensely genuine and admirable. As she described her feelings behind concepts of duality that go into designing each piece, and how she felt humbled when she started working with clay, it was obvious to me that the joy I was getting from my plates and mugs at home was something that had been directly transmitted from Delphine's hands through each piece her studio produces.

When I got home from that meeting I re-read the 'About Us' page on Humble's website.  It conveyed a mission of polarity, being grounded, appreciation of imperfections, and strength conveyed through simplicity, all of which is clear from the expertise, thoughtfulness and intention in each piece. I looked in my cupboard at the beautiful bowls and plates, the mug with the strong heavy bottom, the gorgeous colors of the sandstone and glaze. All these ideas are indeed conveyed to me through Delphine's work, and in the end, it was me who was humbled by the ceramics and her spirit.

Among other things, Delphine and I got to talking about hummus. I grew up eating homemade hummus before it was a grocery store staple. Knowing the passion that follows this unassuming dish in other parts of the world, I thought it was very fitting that hummus would represent Humble Ceramics. It might seem like an easy dish to some, but truly good hummus that you want to eat straight with a spoon is a true art form. How to cook the beans, the type and amount of tahini to use, mastering the ratio of seasoning and flavors; just like ceramics, it's a matter of technique, practice, and passion. After all, beans are some of the oldest cultivated foodstuffs, and in that context chickpeas and clay probably have more in common than we often take time to think about. "

You can see her delicious recipe and all the pictures she took of the studio here

The official site is still under construction ... so we'll update it when it's ready. In the meantime, you can follow Sharon at


Here is a peak at the mood she captured ...

Thanks Sharon!!!

Nosh with Tash

From beans to greens, Chef Natasha Feldman absolutely loves food.

She's always looking for fresh flavors, better techniques, and new ways to share what she learns with others. Call it passion—but it's more of a lifelong hunt for #majornosh

It's always fun to see Humble Ceramic pieces used in the wild .... Nosh with Tash is a fun new show for people who want to learn cooking in a very mellow way, without the pressure of perfection. We were honored to loan some Wabi-Sabi pieces for the shoot - can you spot our work in the video?

Congratulations to Emma & Matthew of the stunning new Malibu boutique hotel The Surfrider Malibu (across the street from Little Beach House Malibu) which just opened its doors to already a slew of positive reviews!

"The Surfrider is a modern California Beach House, inspired by the picturesque Malibu landscape and rich heritage of California surf culture. Personifying Malibu’s historic beach-town community, the complete redesign of the original 1950s-era motel has transformed The Surfrider into a contemporary boutique hotel that gives guests an unparalleled and elevated visit to Malibu.

HC used in Food & Wine Magazine (October 2017)

Our Stillness Plate was beautifully pictured in Food & Wine Magazine on Page 100 & 104 ... this guy in "Midnight Glow" (blue) was an overrun from a larger order for The Arch/Flowerwild  wedding & catering company ... it's one of those finicky glazes that gives you as much loss as you do good pieces ... but when a piece makes it - wow - "glow" indeed!!! We don't offer it anymore due to the temperamental nature of the results ... ;( but do check-out the yummy recipe for the Chorizo & Fig salad featured in this issue of Food&Wine!

Thank you @ Food & Wine Team!
