As a collector, I have found it hard in the past to not clutter my space with too many things. I love decorating my space with all of my treasures but I constantly found myself feeling overwhelmed (especially with dusting), and the style of my space was often confusing. Back when I wasn’t concerned with style, I let the clutter take over, my friends would refer to my space as a “thrift store of a home” or to me as an “organized hoarder”. I first realized enough was enough when I was gifted my first copy of Marie Kondo’s book. Around that same time, I was moving from my four bedroom, home into a one bedroom apartment. That’s when I began the process of weeding things out while packing to move, and finding it really hard to let go of all of my collections and prize possessions. I made it my goal to let go of everything I could and to make my style more curated in my new living space.
What kind of ceremonies do you think of when someone mentioned ritual? Maybe you think about a long, complex series of archaic chants.

Inspired by the last frost of spring, this line was created with everyday essentials for the home in mind, such as salad plates, dinner plates, bowls, cheese boards, and vases. Each piece is handcrafted with dark grey clay, hand pressed with a delicate tulip print texture, and finished off with a glossy white glaze utilizing a wipe away technique to give the ceramics an illusion of frost.
