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.
