Fall 2013 Inspiration

For Fall 2013, things are getting a little darker. The collection is called “Smoke and Flowers” and it's moody, sexy and pretty all at the same time. Think: opium den.

Here's a little peak of what inspired it:

Bold & Beautiful Waylande Gregory

American pottery and ceramics are among some of the most collectable. Edith Heath, Beatrice Wood and Leza McVey are among some of the best known and some of my favorites. Lately I have been more drawn to the work of Waylande Gregory. Bold colors, streamlined animal imagery, it's fun and smart. Born in Kansas, Waylande helped set the tone for the deco ceramics movement.

Waylande Gregory's newer work:

Beatrice Wood

Edith Heath

I think I see a ceramics class in my future…

Marianne Faithfull

Marianne Faithfull is still one of our favorite singers from the 60s with her charming voice and too-cute look. Her music is definitely playing in the CLC offices today.

Cold Brew

I've become a fan of cold brew coffee concentrate. The first one I tried was SECRET SQUIRREL from a local heath food store and I liked it. It's made by soaking the beans for 18+ hours and it is said to be less acidic that hot coffee. Mixed with soy, rice or cows milk, it is creamy and refresing. And best of all it's ready to go—no grinding and waiting.

Faux Low Cal Latte

  • 4 oz of coffee
  • 8 oz of water
  • 1 oz of milk
  • splash of half & half for a little cremier taste
  • a little agave for sweetness
  • add ice
