Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
"We carefully consider garden harvest varieties, and then design a unique piece of tableware that serves as its ideal counterpart. Our signature process is a trompe l’oeil technique; our green porcelain berry baskets serve to bring the look and feel of farmers’ markets to the kitchen and home. In the end, we aim to offer heirloom-quality vessels that beautifully and functionally display fruits and vegetables straight from your garden for mealtimes and entertaining."
Meet Toshiko Takaezu: a potter who (like all potters) was not afraid to play with fire. In our oral history interview with her, she reflects on why she became a potter:
…the impact that I got from women potters, the strength that you could feel, the strength that is in the pot, made me feel that I really like this…and to have such an impression that I got from the pottery that the women made and the force that they had with the piece, and they didn’t make to have it in the galleries and the museum, they make because they can use it.

"I love the fact that DOTTO allows me to call the shots, give new life to clothing that otherwise might be discarded, pretend that I have the grandest closet in all the land, meet people from around the world, and put cats in my pictures, but what I really love about it is the glorious flexibility it affords me. I joined the Peace Corps after college because I wanted a broader perspective of the world, and I’ve continued volunteering in some way ever since. Having my days free lets me volunteer around Chicago a couple of times a week, which is truly what I love to do. I have working limbs and my wits about me; there is no reason I shouldn’t be helping others as much as I can." – vintage seller Nicole Dotto
