~ Embracing the beauty of imperfections since 2010 ~
!!! 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".
Dekor has just opened a second location which means ... Humble Ceramics canisters and other trinkets are now available in Ojai (as well as Echo Park)! Not only is Dekor & Co bringing mad style to Ojai, but also some killer juices, coffee, beauty products and other fun and delicious items. The owners invite and encourage you to come, browse, sit and make this your new coffee hangout as well!
Humble Ceramics plates and bowls were used in the latest Food & Wine cookbook compilation Chef's Easy Weeknight Dinners. Looks beautiful and I want to bite off every single page. Amazing to be in such good company (wink to the other potters) ... Thank you!
What an unexpected surprise it was when I randomly looked at my Instragram feed and saw what looked like a Humble Ceramics piece in the most enticing picture. Since I wasn't 100% sure, I looked at the original feed and it was so beautiful that I went on to the actual blog where I got the ultimate treat: to see the most beautiful pictures of food using some of our work! If the recipes are as good as the photography ... hold on to your spoons! Hopefully, one day soon, someone will offer this amazingly talented cook/photographer/stylist her own book deal! I felt like devouring every picture! A big thank you for featuring our work in such a flattering manner! Thank you Lindsey!
Oh - and did I mention these recipes are gluten free?!!?!
Humble Ceramics is proud to announce the grand opening of a delicious new Japanese Tapas restaurant called NECCO (root in Japanese). If I may be so bold as to recommend the lamb, the potato fries, pickled vegetables and .... nevermind - it's aaaaalllllll good!
Hello again and thank you for your continued interest in our evolution.
Humble Ceramics recently moved from an outdoor home studio (aka "the deck") to an industrial space in South Central Los Angeles. The space is approximately 8000 sq ft. in a neighborhood bursting with life, street art and amazing artisans. We are sharing the space with the very talented Nonato Ceramics who makes beautiful hand-painted tiles (early and traditional Mexican, Spanish, Malibu and California style). http://nonatosceramics.com/ http://instagram.com/nonatoceramics
After taking 6 months longer than we expected ... we are still working on the organization, layout, flow of the space, and how to use our brand new kiln, making and developing new glazes, working on catching up to orders, etc ... We are still just two people: Delphine and my right-hand Nikita, with occasional help from the Nonato brothers (and very grateful for that!!!)
We would like to thank the growing list of stores and chefs worldwide that are being so patient - your place is on the waiting list. We have NOT forgotten about you! Time flies, but these things take time, and we want to do it right. Plus, we can only do so much in a single day.
Mostly self-taught, everyday is a new discovery, a new challenge, a new opportunity to grow and learn something new ...
We do not have the funds right now to just hire the staff we need and are trying to grow accordingly while staying stable. We are living an incredible adventure and your interest, support, and patience is very important to us.
If you would like to intern with us, please shoot us a line at email@example.com
Also, we are now making our space available for photo-shoots (in case anyone is interested) ...
Congratulations to The Primary Essentials for being mentioned - once again - in the NY Times on June 24, 2014 ... and thank you for including jars by Humble Ceramics and spoons by Tim Roberts (in the background) in this lovely shot! Yeah for handcrafted, small batched and handmade objects in stores full of soul and exquisite taste like TPE!
