Meet the Artist:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
Kawa+Sons is a husband+wife (+twosons) pottery studio out of Savannah Ga. We make wheel thrown, handmade, functional stoneware that will stand the test of time, microwaves, dishwashers, (and hopefully your own children).
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
Our process is very "family centric." We prepare our clay in the carport, make our pieces in the sunroom, bisque fire in the backyard, glaze in the shed, fire again! Then Blair takes care of the "office work" with a kid or a cat sitting on her head. Every piece is the process of many hands on hours, and much personal love.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Family and togetherness are huge core values for us. We also love to garden.
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
Blair bought David at a date auction because she wanted to learn how to make a mug. That was our first date. The rest is history.
FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.
I can't get enough of that book store!!
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I believe that we create as a reflection of The Creator in us. We make because He first made us.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
If you have a new idea, make 10 of that design. You'll learn a lot along the way.
