Handthrown Ramekins (Set of 3)
Dish it out.
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.
Each of these earthy ramekins is 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. They’re hand thrown using locally harvested and processed clay and glazes, and the slight variations in the final product makes each one unique. We’re filling them with olives, using them as sugar bowls, and even catching rings and jewelry on our dressers.
