Product of the Day!

Artist: Johnathan Langston Location: Portland, Oregon About: 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. *Jonathan came in earlier this week and brought a new set of bottles! Great pewter color and so shiny you can see me taking a picture of them right in the middle! So pretty!
