!!! CHEFS !!!! If we don't have what you need in our stock room, orders can take anywhere from a few weeks up to 2 or 3 months to fulfill (depending on the size of the order, whether we have to make it from scratch or just glaze our bisque).
Production time is anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks (possibly more) depending on the size of the order or if we have to make your items from scratch, unless you pick from shapes we keep in stock at the time of the inquiry (bisque only) ... and all we need to do is glaze to your color preference. This timing does not include shipping.
Thank you for your patience and understanding ... and watch Humble Ceramics grow - one piece at a time.
Thank you for being part of this artist' s growing "L.A. story".
We are so so proud to be available at Cisco Home in Pasadena
For those who remember their amazing La Brea store in the nineties ... that was the first time I came across Cisco and have been a fan ever since! Not only of their amazing and versatile casual style, their love of linen and oversize furniture (hello Belgium & Axel Vervoordt), but of their sustainability, their location and what they have been doing for the community, discreetly yet generously. They have been an inspiration ever since, and it is a very emotional and proud moment for us to be (in our small humble way) part of Cisco's extended family.

See more handcrafted restaurant design in the "Consume: Handcrafting L.A. Restaurant Design" at the Craft in America Center until 1/4/20. "The reason why chefs resonate with the work is probably because of the simplicity of the shape, textures, colors and it acts more like a canvas for their creativity." - Delphine Lippens "Consume: Handcrafting L.A. Restaurant Design" is an exhibition that focuses on handmade objects made by over 30 local artists for Southern California restaurants. The exhibition features all forms of items associated with food consumption, including: serving boards, dishware, glasses, lighting, and furnishings. The intersection of design, art, and craft to enhance dining is the crux of this show.

Congratulations to Chef Josef Centeno and Betty Hallock for their second cookbook (with photographs by Ren Fuller) AMA: A Tex-Mex Kitchen (Released on October 1, 2019)!!!
We're also delighted to have been included in page 242! Thanks!!!
"Josef Centeno is chef-owner of four Los Angeles restaurants: Bäco Mercat, Bar Amá, amá*cita and Michelin-starred Orsa & Winston. He has been called "a prime mover behind what we've come to think of as Los Angeles cuisine" and "the culinary mayor" of downtown L.A. His first cookbook was Bäco, named after his restaurant, Mediterranean-influenced Bäco Mercat, which was named one of the 10 best restaurants in the country by Bon Appétit magazine. His latest cookbook, Amá, is an homage to the Tejano cooking he grew up with." - Amazon Bio
The Fat Jewish once observed ... "a tattoo sleeve used to mean you were a biker who would kill, now it means you are a chef who makes a lovely pork belly with balsamic drizzle". As a fan of pork, chefs and tattoos ... our work is meant to inspire both chefs and foodies alike. Great design is about simplicity so that life may shine around it.
