"The guest house. This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy. A depression. A meanness. Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if there's a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of it's furniture. Still treat each guest honorably. He may be cleaning you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice. Meet theta the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond." -Rumi
These screen-printed porcelain plaques are created by a small, family run business that believes in the beauty of handmade and keeping it simple.
Their work is influenced by a love for aesthetics, simplicity and words that can encourage and move us to live a good life. It is also greatly influenced by modern architecture and nature, as well as, the Scandinavian design of a great-grandfather's Swedish homeland. They love patterns, black & white, color, wood, textiles and imperfections.
The words screen printed on each ceramic piece are carefully chosen with the hope of opening the heart and awakening others to their inner life.
•All screen-printed designs are created by hand and printed onto clay
