We all know what makes for bad silverware (see: heavy handled knives clattering to the floor off a slippery plate, forks that won't even pretend to spear a lowly salad leaf, spoons that run off for clandestine moonlit rendezvous with the dish etc.) but what makes *good* silverware?
It only took a single morning breakfast meeting for us to fall head over perfectly-organized-beautifully-functional-kitchen heels for Hasami's line of elegant, simple, interchangeable earthenware.
What do James Bond, the BFG, John Lennon, and Ruby the Shopdog all have in common?
Our favorite pieces always have the best stories to tell. From our beloved large wooden shop-shelf that began its journey in a general store straight out of Laura Ingalls' Big Woods (and made its way to us by way of Anna's father's wood-burning-stove store a decade ago) to the biergarten table we "borrowed" from Two Pony Gardens...until we found an American-made source to get our own and then we put it back (thanks, Mom!) we love a piece that feels like it comes with history. Oh, if these old chairs could speak!
Our founding ethos at The Foundry is to nurture a lifelong relationship with well-made objects of use and beauty. With the stunning, hand-made, cult-favorite wooden toys from Grimm's, that lifelong relationship can start at the very beginning. Plus, is there anything more pleasing to the eye, hand, and heart than a stack of rainbows!?
