Dark Bowls


As always - I can't decide which picture to put up so here are way too many. These were made for a wedding registry, and the rough looking one (made with Black Mountain Sculpture) is a prototype. One had a reaction in the kiln which means only two out of these five will land in a store - soon.

Cubic Inches


Humble Ceramics still doesn't have a kiln and fires at various studios around town via memberships and private kiln rentals ... these are the latest cubic inch calculations for the latest load of cazuelas, plates, flats and Apple Seed vases ... finding beauty in patterns, repetition and mathematics - it looks kind of cool! You can always follow the stream of work in progress (when I don't forget to snap away) via instagram.

HC @ Chiat Day Annual Craft Fair



Every year, a few vendors are invited to participate in TBWA/Chiat/Day/LA's annual craft sale. It is a very cool gathering set-up for the employees ... and Humble Ceramics was there. It was truly fun to get to see the inside of this mythical agency and feel all the creativity buzzing all around us. Above are a few pictures of the set up (one table only) ...

HC mentioned in C MAGAZINE



Humble Ceramics was mentioned in the winter 2013 issue of C Mag's coverage of the very cool Airbnb/Hello LA-sponsored Nomadic Chef dinner (in honor of Doug Aitken, Station to Station) and prepared by Station to Station Chef Leif Hedendal in the lovely Home Grown Edible Gardens of Venice. Humble Ceramics provided an assortment of vases, bowls and cazuelas for the event.

Twig & Twine is now open and featured in Daily Candy


 Congratulations Heather on the opening!! And on being featured in Daily Candy. 
The store looks amazing.


If burning a scented candle is your idea of lighting up and hydrangea is your shrub of choice, consider Twig & Twine your new neighborhood petal pusher.

Heather Williams’s newly opened flower-slash-gift shop sprang from a childhood spent roaming her family’s Sonoma County gardens, combined with her art school roots and the desire to expand her flourishing floral event design business.

Wood fixtures and gallery-white walls provide a blank canvas for seasonal buds (carted in fresh from the neighboring L.A. Flower Mart) and a thoughtful selection of giftables: locally fired Humble Ceramics, design-centric coffee table books, Big Sur Country Soap bars, Sugar Paper stationery, and Izola goods for men.

Pop in to pluck a bouquet of dainty ranunculus or manly proteas (contrary to popular belief, certain guys dig flowers). Scout the adjoining workshop, where Williams crafts artful arrangements for weddings, dinners, and special occasions big and small. Props from events past — vintage books, driftwood, antique jars — get a second life as merchandising elements.  We can’t get enough.
