New Arrivals: Porcelain Jewelry, Coasters, Baby Hats...

We have some beautiful new items in the shop right now, many of which would make great Easter or Passover gifts. Take a look!

Not all items are available on our website yet, so if you'd like to purchase something just contact us and we'll take care of you.

Please note that we'll be closed this Tuesday, March 27, as we'll be in New Hampshire fetching a new batch of Dan Dustin's spoons, Jane Kaufmann's orbs, Ray Lagasse's baskets, and, hopefully, jewelry boxes!

Oh sweet spontaneous spring!

(Pictured at top right: Porcelain Seed and Pod Vases by Mary Anne Davis, $28 small, $44 medium).

It wouldn't be springtime without eggs and bunnies! Humpty Dumpty, Kate the Bunny, and Heart Bunny by Judy Geagley of Tollesboro, KY ($32-$57).

Baby hats and booties made from upcycled cashmere and cotton by `e-ko-logic in Troy, NY ($28-$45 each).

We have 144 fresh new coasters in loads of new colors and patterns (some shown here)! Made in Toronto by Renato Foti ($14.50 each, $28 per pair).

I am so excited about this new-to-Greenjeans artist, Ruth Tomlinson! She makes porcelain and sterling silver jewelry in her London studio ($100-$300). (The ring is already sold, but more are on the way...)

More jewelry by Ruth. The black metal is oxidized sterling silver. The turquoise earrings are set in 18k gold. The white earrings would be perfect on a bride!

Gorgeous gothically romantic necklace by Ruth. The bell-shapes are formed from unglazed porcelain using the bone tools that belonged to her ceramicist grandmother.

Maple cutting/serving board by Buff Brown ($120) and turned wooden bowls of cherry by Tom Dubois ($125-$165).

Walnut cutting/serving board by Buff Brown ($120) and decorative serving bowls by Kit Cornell ($80-90).

Raku-fired vessel by New Hampshire studio potter Jeff Brown ($95) and Fairy Princess by Jane Kaufmann ($24).

Artist's brushes (great for watercolors, pottery painting, or calligraphy) made from deer, fox, elk, goat, and sable and fitted into bamboo handles ($25-$170). Made by Keith Lebenzon in Beaverton, OR. (The animal hairs come from hides that Keith buys from hunters that would otherwise be left in the woods to rot. The hides, not the hunters.)

Teabowls by Kit Cornell in her new glaze, Seagrass ($25 each).
