Charlotte Home + Garden Fall Issue
Swoon! Powder Studio was discovered by an Editor for Charlotte Home + Garden Magazine at the Vintage Charlotte Summer Market. Months later she contacted us asking to come see the studio and feature some of our items in the quarterly publication. Of course, we we're excited and more than happy to oblige her request. Aleigh (Editor) and Leah (columnist) came by the studio, got a full tour and an extensive interview. After sitting and chatting with the two about our history, how the dream began, our process and more. Leah wrote two excellent features on us - one in the Charlotte Home + Garden Magazine and an extended feature on the publications blog.
Charlotte Home + Garden - Modern Display "Each hand-cast porcelain creation from Powder Studio has a personality, but each piece is also open to interpretation. “We like [our line] because it looks different to everyone,” says Stephen James, who owns Powder Studio with his partner Nathan Tucker. Their designs are meant to be useful—as vases or tea-light holders—but are also beautiful on their own as sculptural art. James and Tucker build the molds, pour the porcelain, glaze the pieces, and fire their wares inside their NoDa studio. The delicate porcelain gives their work a beautiful quality, but it can also make the items fragile: James and Tucker lose about 25 percent of their work during the production process. “You’re not really in control,” Tucker says.
