Handmade Wine Chillers
- Toronto's skyline is speckled with bricks from the former Don Valley Brick Works yard. In the 1960s and 70s, the company produced more than 43 million bricks each year.
Portland, Oregon's Pigeon Toe Ceramics boasts some mighty strong environmental creeds: All of their ceramics are made from natural clay, feature lead-free glazes, and are fired in kilns fueled by renewable energy. This hand-thrown porcelain tumbler boasts a supple, slightly dented shape that feels great to grip—perfect for a warm winter's drink or cool summer refreshment.
A limited run of 112 trays was commissioned by the Napa Valley winery Newton Vineyard, each equally suited to serving hors d’oeuvres as wine. Asymmetrical cross-hatching references the region’s terraced topography.
Tactile and organic, these handmade pendants combine kiln-fired terra-cotta with a shiny, white porcelain glaze.
