We have spoken before of our love for ceramics and pottery here at the BSP. There is a deep seated respect and admiration for the craftsmanship that goes into making these pieces and I am so honored to be able to share these artists with you. When we speak about “Abundant Love” as our theme for the month of February, it means more than just desire, attraction. We are also speaking about honoring the tangible products created by people who craft objects with love in their hearts, in their hands. We are speaking of the kind of quality you just can’t get in a mass market store.
Natania Hume is a maker/designer behind Slow Studio. As the name states, there is no rapid fire, mass market production happening here. Each piece is created with intention, with respect to the process. The pieces in Slow Studio are crafted in small batches and there is a tangible simplicity in these pieces that is hard to describe. I feel reverent and peaceful when I look at these pieces and I can only imagine this energy would transfer from vessel to hand with use. Hume’s work inspires me to pursue my own (long-standing) dream to learn the craft of handmade ceramics. That is what great art does, friends. It creates love, inspires creativity, lives on.
