I recently read about Coe & Waito's final studio sale via Toronto Craft Alert (it's worth subscribing to, Toronto). Since it was going to be my last (-ish?) chance to get my hands on some of their beautiful ceramics, I made sure to go by today. There was so much I wanted to bring home with me, but I was only able to pick up these pieces. I didn't get a pine cone or an acorn or an owl lamp (or a coral vase, or a cup with handle, or or or...), but I did get a pretty cup that is so delicate & such a beautiful colour, a tiny oyster shell-like pinch bowl, and one of the scalloped bowls that I have coveted for a while now. All three are seconds, but they are perfect to me.
Even though the sale brought me the opportunity to get these pieces for next to nothing, and even though the sale had a happy atmosphere, I'm still a bit sad. The biz is tough, guys. I look forward to seeing what Carly and Alissa do next, however.
Sonja was there, as lovely as ever. She asked if I was going to blog about the sale, and ha ha! I did!
