Featured in Good Ancestor Co's Holiday Gift Guide 2020

My ceramic soap dispenser was featured in Good Ancestor Co's Holiday Gift Guide 2020!

"HANDMADE CERAMIC DISPENSERS For the pottery lovers out there, a handmade soap dispenser is a dream and will immediately elevate your bathroom or kitchen. We don’t know why (yet) but most of our favorite ceramic artists (see below) do not make them, but we have found a few beautiful options from talented artisans on Etsy that we are loving. We love this Vanilla Bean beauty by Clay Path StudioThese Made to Order lookers by 3 Points PotteryThis fresh little Hand Thrown cutie by BTR Ceramics. And there are many more where these came from, all on Etsy, the rulers of celebrating small businesses and artisans. Just search “ceramic” or “handmade” soap dispenser and click away! OR you can harass your favorite local ceramic artist to make one for you… we snatched up one of the few that Gopi Shaw Ceramics made a while back and cherish it! Maybe if you ask her to make more she will! ;)"

Port LBC x Gopi Shah Ceramics

For the holidays, I partnered with a local Long Beach design and lifestyle brand, Port, to create a holiday ramen kit perfect for gifting this season. The ramen bowl was designed by Jim Leatherman and produced by my studio. It features a new clay that I hadn't used before, a crackle glaze, an embedded Esport logo, and a pedestal foot. The kit comes with a bamboo utensil set and a Super Mega Fun Time ramen packet imported from Japan. 

Check out the below photos documenting the creation of these bowls.

Alaya x Gopi Shah Ceramics

I partnered with Alaya, a loose leaf tea company, to create a holiday gift box that celebrates nature: my handmade pottery, Alaya's fresh organic teas, and marigolds to brighten up winter days. Ring in the holidays with:

  • A Set of Two Gopi Shah Ceramics 12 oz. tumblers, handmade in Gopi's one-woman studio in Long Beach, California. These versatile tumblers are made with a classic straight edge side that are meant to be easily grabbed and used every day.
  • Your choice of our biodynamic and organic Darjeeling Second Flush Black Tea, or Darjeeling Green Tea
  • A stainless steel strainer for zero-waste brewing
  • A packet of organic marigold seeds, courtesy of Back to the Roots

Each order comes in an Alaya-branded box, packaged with kraft paper shred, dried flowers, and a handwritten postcard from Darjeeling.
