A home for flower friends.

Each of these pieces is part of the Shelter Collection, designed in Charleston, South Carolina and produced by a team of artisans in Star, North Carolina. After the closing of a factory in Star left a large portion of the town unemployed, nonprofit STARworks used the vacant building to start a full-scale ceramics and glassblowing studio, reviving the community economy by drawing artisans and craftspeople from all over the world. The Shelter Collection is a testament to the power of art in rebuilding communities.

Give your favorite fresh flowers an elegant resting place in the form of this handthrown stoneware vase, which adds quiet vibrance to any table or windowsill and makes a subtly beautiful backdrop for your favorite arrangements. It’s made from local North Carolina stoneware and hand-dipped in a matte glaze, leaving a bit of warm, earth-colored clay peeking through the bottom. Each one is hand thrown using locally harvested and processed clay and glazes, and the slight variations in the final product makes each one unique.

Meet the Maker

The Shelter Collection

Charleston, SC
The Shelter Collection is a partnership with STARworks, a nonprofit that works to revive local economies in rural areas through art and design. Each ceramic and glass piece is handmade in Star, North Carolina, where the local economy was decimated with the 2001 closing of a hosiery factory that employed a large portion of the city’s population. STARworks helped turn the factory into a destination for artisans, drawing craftspeople from all over the world, and in turn providing the community of Star the opportunity to start small businesses to support the influx. The Shelter Collection's stunning pieces are a testament to the power of art in rebuilding communities.
