RS Ceramics: The Work of Reinaldo Sanguino

Posted on September 18, 2013 | 0 comments

We recently returned from the NY Now international gift show in New York City, where we displayed our collection for the first time. We were amazed and encouraged by the vast creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of so many business owners and designer/makers. We loved seeing many industry friends putting their work out there and making it all happen, like Dunes & Duchess, and Kreeger Pottery, just to name a few. 

A new discovery for us was the work of Reinaldo Sanguino of RS Ceramics. Based in New York City, Reinaldo creates a collection of ceramic stools that I just can not seem to get out of my mind. Each piece is different from the next, and is a beautiful blend of form and function. Visit his gallery site and see for yourself- I bet your imagination will be swimming with ideas of the perfect spot for one of these sculptures.

Were you at the NY Now show? What were some of your favorite finds?

Summer Wholesale Markets!

Posted on July 01, 2013 | 0 comments


Summer has started out with a bang around here! One of our big side-projects has been putting together this new wholesale collection catalog, above. Determined to teach myself some new software, I dove head-first into the digital world (in the midst of our cross-country move, of course!) and was able to produce this shiny (but simple) booklet that will be handed out to buyers at the Summer Gift Shows throughout the country. Are you a buyer for a boutique, museum shop, wedding salon, or gift store? Be sure to stop by to see our exclusive wholesale line in Atlanta, LA, and New York. 

Not headed to the shows, or want to arrange an order now? Please use this form here to be in touch. Thanks!

Nordstom and Etsy Present Paloma's Nest!

Posted on July 01, 2013 | 0 comments


Sometimes things happen that you could have only dreamed of a year ago, or even just a few days ago. That's how we felt when we were asked by Nordstrom and Etsy Wholesale to be a part of "Nordstrom and Etsy Presents: Weddings!" What an honor!

To have our work be available at one of the most highly recognized retailers in the country is something we still can't wrap our little heads around. Thank you to all of the folks at Etsy who have always believed in us, and who continue to support and offer amazing opportunities to all artisans; and thank you to the stellar team at Nordstrom who have shown us so much patience and professionalism in every interaction we have had with them. It has truly been a wonderful experience. 

Our collection for Nordstrom is available online (free shipping!) and in all 5 of the Nordstrom Wedding Suites while supplies last (some styles are already sold out!). Be sure to take a peek and while you're there, check out fellow friends and artists WhichGoose, Serephine, Anto Arts, and more!

Our New Home in Connecticut!

Posted on July 01, 2013 | 0 comments


Here at Paloma's Nest,  we truly believe that Home is where the Heart is. So, we are very excited to share that over the past month, we left our home in Austin to be closer to what matters the most- family. 

We loved our time in Austin, but we longed for our children to know their grandparents, to know the ocean, and to appreciate the magnificence and history here on the East Coast, and get to experience cities like New York and Boston. Our hearts were aching for all of those things, plus the support of family and old friends.

We have settled here on the Connecticut shoreline, not too far from where I (Caroline) was born and raised. The move went even better than we could have hoped- things fell into place so smoothly, from selling our home before we even listed it, to finding the perfect space for our family and business;  and while it is so much work to unpack and set up our new home and studio, we are loving every moment of it. The pace of our daily life has slowed down so much compared to city living... in this small town we are learning for the first time in years what it is like to spend every day surrounded by lush nature, a choir of birds, the waves of the ocean, and neighbors who stop and chat during their evening stroll.

We would like to thank all of you for your support and patience with us over the past month as we made this big change. We've been able to catch up on production and even squeeze in a few exciting projects we will share with you soon. Life is too short to stay in a place that no longer makes you happy... and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to create this new home base for our children and for our business. We are sure it will inspire many great things to come. 

PS- The photo above is a view of an artist's studio, circa 1899,  from a nearby historic site, the Florence Griswold Museum, in Lyme, CT. One of our favorite spots to visit and be inspired, the property and museum are called the "home of American Impressionism." This elegant "boarding-house-turned-artist-retreat" fostered the growth of a major 19th century art colony, just a few miles from where we now call home.
