Sam and Grace of Maker’s Movement and CYL Collective have joined forces for The Handmade Pop-Up, an online market featuring handcrafted goods from artists and artisans around the world.
Canada has been well represented and I have highlighted a few talented creatives!
Sara Clark ( @shopsarahclark )
Sara Clark is a multidisciplinary maker living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. All pieces are crafted by Sara in her home workshop or studio.
Marrying materials such as wood, natural fibers and resin, she creates unique designs for the body and the home with an emphasis on neutral colours and clean lines. Sara’s work is currently focused on creating contemporary designs influenced by simple, primitive art. A portion of all online sales are donated to local organizations committed to the safety of and empowerment of women.
White River Company ( @ whiterivercompany )
White River Company is an Ontario based print shop.
From beautiful prints to decorate your walls or greeting cards for any occasion, our mission is to make beautiful pieces that elevate any home. We love simple clean imagery that supports positivity and nature, whether that’s through an original painting or captured in a simple illustration. All products are designed and printed in Canada.
Ayu Larasati Ceramics ( @alarasati )
(This was a collaboration piece with Charissa Rais, a graphic designer who hand-painted the plate @aceramics_ )
Ayu Larasati was born in Indonesia and moved to Toronto to earn her bachelor degree from Industrial Design program in OCAD University. She was holding her full-time job as a product designer when she found herself continually making ceramic and fell completely in love with the material. She established her ceramic studio in late 2014. She is back recently in Toronto after residing in Indonesia for two years. Making ceramics has served her as an experience where she can push a reset button, recharged and coming back to herself. She feels that there is nothing more joyful and rewarding than to see her creation being enjoyed and out in the world.
Meg Does Pottery ( @megdoespottery )
Meg Does Pottery is a Winnipeg based luxury line of handbuilt and wheel thrown pottery. These items are intended to add interest or that special oooh la la to your favourite spaces.
