Did you hear? We’ve partnered with Etsy—the global online marketplace—to bring you unique, handcrafted goods and artwork from some of our favorite emerging artists across the country.
We’re excited to announce that, starting early this month, we’re bringing even more artists into our Etsy and Nordstrom Present Boutique online and in a handful of our stores. In addition to Downing Pottery and CircaCeramics, we’ll soon be offering pieces from Dock Artisan and Anto Arts in our At Home Department as well as Whichgoose, Serephine, Paloma’s Nest, Sweet Sorrella and Milk and Honey in our Wedding Suite.
We asked a couple of our artisans about their craft and their partnership with us. Here’s what they had to say.
Sarah Woodson from Downing Pottery
“Walking into Nordstrom and seeing my mugs on display was a moment I will never forget. I threw those pots. I attached the handles. I painted and glazed each piece and sat by a kiln until 2AM, waiting for it to shut off. Being on display in Nordstrom was tangible validation that the work that I do matters. It’s a feeling that artists dream of and one that very few of us are ever lucky enough to experience.”
Erin Brooks from Serephine: Headpieces, Accessories and Veils
“My line is a very personal and special thing to me; that’s something I try to convey in the artistry of each piece that I create with my own two hands. I focus on the special, unique, original—and on providing the best possible quality.
“I’ve spent my fair share of time perusing the lovely things in the Seattle store’s Wedding Suite, and I think it’s such a beautiful space. I’m simply elated that my pieces get to be a part of that.”
