Humble Ceramics - since Aug. 25, 2010


Today marks a very special date.  
August 25, 2010 was the very first day of my very first pottery class.  
Taken as a six-week social experiment (merci Julie!) ... 
I never imagined in a million years that what was just suppose to take a few week-ends 
completely took over my life, heart and soul!  
I never chose pottery: pottery chose me! 
And I made an incredible life-long friend in the process (JU!).

A few months later, after class number two, 
it was time to create a blog to show friends and family my humble creations.  
Picking a name was quite simple: 
how did I feel in relationship to the clay, in relationship to this experience? 
Humbled for sure.  
Clay has become one of my greatest life, spiritual, taoism and zen teacher!

Your interest, curiosity and support has been and continues to be incredible 
and is never taken for granted!

Gratitude is the word of the day! Everyday!!!

Thank you.

Delphine

HC NEW SPACE UPDATE

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).

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 humbleceramics@gmail.com

Also, we are now making our space available for photo-shoots (in case anyone is interested) ...

You can follow our adventures @ http://instagram.com/humbleceramics

Thank you for your patience ... we are completely in awe of what is happening to us. 

To be continued!
