Product of the Day!

Brand: Jonathan Langston Artist: Jonathan Langston Location: Portland, Oregon Jonathan Langston is an alumni of the Oregon College of Art and Craft. His studio is located at the Ford Building in SE Portland. Jonathan begins with a 2D design on paper. Each form is first hand-thrown. A mold is then taken of the original to be used for slip casting, allowing Jonathan to work with duplicates. This process provides opportunity to alter each piece individually while staying true to the original form. The vessels become uniformly distinct. *All of these vases at first glance seem similar, but when you look closely each one has their own characteristics! Actually, Jonathan just came in the store and brought in some more vases, pink and blue ones to be exact. My favorite is that pewter one on the right!
