Featured on Drive the District

Hi all,  We are on a section featuring artisans in NYC this month on Drive the District's site.

The number one and two problems

air plant watering disappointment perception size

I would like to say that my number one complaint about my products, outside of plants dying, is the sizing. My things are relatively small because that is how they come and although the size is listed in the description, some customers miss it all together and are inevitably disappointed. I enjoy making smaller things. Please, please, please read all the description ahead of time. Contact me directly if you have a concern or question. I answer my emails within hours (you will either hear back from me or Rachel). If you want a larger and crazier centerpiece, let us chat....

This was my window display Erin Przekop and Tom Critchlow put together a really interactive and approachable show. A high-end gallery-esque, not stuffy, party warehouse full of coolness. Sorry but that is how I am describing it. There was outstanding furniture, beautiful art, one of a kind handmade products of all types, free booze, food, copper flask making demo, artist caricatures being drawn on site and most importantly a bunch of great people (viewers, browsers, makers...

Pop-up shops are not something I normally do but I made an exception for Erin Przekop's shop coming up in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It was close to where I live and I am making a large window display for the store. I'm really excited about the window display more than anything else at this time. I was thinking bending a crazy large pattern with cherry wood. I hope you are available to stop by and visit or say hi.
