I’m having one of those weeks where I can’t remember for the life of me what day it is… maybe it was leap day throwing me off or maybe it was that I’ve been sequestered in the studio creating some new spring designs for the shop that I know you guys are going to love.

How do I know you’ll love them?  Well, because I’ve received several emails a week over the past few months requesting these products!  First up on the list?  These beautiful ceramic and wood cake stands!  I made a similar DIY a few months ago and I’ve been getting my proverbial door knocked down every since with questions on if I would add this to the shop.  It took me a while to source the proper materials to get this one made.  The tops are handmade ceramic and are a teensy bit irregular offering them a really organic feel that I love.  Paired with a very classic pedestal, I think they’re perfect.

I do (spoiler alert) have a more modern version coming soon too (a little more similar to the original DIY), but we’re still working on the base design for that one so that it’s a little more secure. Apparently it’s easier to make a more ornate bottom that a super simple streamlined one.  If there is one thing I learned in 8 years of product development it was that sometimes the simpler (and seemingly easier) things are sometimes the most complex.


I designed this one in one size, but in two shades – a dark jacobean walnut and a pickled white oak (yes, pickled… it’s kind of like whitewashing).




These gorgeous stands are going to be available in the shop soon (along with a few other beautiful new things)!  If you’d like to be the first to know when they go on sale, be sure to sign up for shop email updates below!
