Fun Fact, Danielle Clare Pomorski and I are both from the same lovely weird little place, Erie PA. Throughout our childhoods, occasionally our worlds would overlapped, but for the most part she was just the cool girl I saw as swim meets. Since then, Danielle began dating my oldest friend and moved to Brooklyn. Fast forward past many hangouts and several years- when Danielle so thoughtfully made my new husband and me the most beautiful ceramic dishes for a wedding gift.
Let me also preface this by saying, I am in no way the right person to be trusted with breakable things. Just the other day, I cracked my 2 week old iPhone on the subway platform. So you can imagine one of my first thoughts when receiving this amazing gift Amazing! Too bad they will live in a safe place far far away from me. But I also don't have any self control (which should also explain my high sugar intake). But you know what, while I wouldn't suggest throwing them on the ground, I'm no monster, they're so expertly made that they're very durable and practical. All that to say, these one of a kind pieces are the real deal.
When Danielle told me she was going to start selling her pieces, I jumped at the change too photograph her work. In true low-key form, we shot everything in natural light and on the deck of her apartment, which she told me is one of her favorite places to work. All in all, it didn't take much to make her pieces look amazing, they simply already are.
