Based in Portland, Oregon Lisa Jones created Pigeon Toe, “with a vision to create uniquely beautiful objects that incorporate and celebrate the extensive history of handcrafts”. I was instantly won over. Pigeon Toe has taken the age-old art of hand-thrown ceramics, stripped it down and delivered a product that is familiar yet like nothing you’ve ever seen. This balance is no simple feat and each piece, be it tableware, lighting or a statement necklace delivers on this untouchable product design trait.
Thoughtfully designed Pigeon Toe walks the line of delicate and functional. May it be a kick of color on an interior glaze, wrapping handles with silicone rubber cord or the lack of glaze on the exterior of pieces, Pigeon Toe has done the unthinkable, making porcelain not only modern but also relevant again. I don’t know about you but I’m strategizing on how I can replace entire tableware collection not to mention a few votives and of course a statement necklace. Wish me luck!
