Carved wooden spoons, hand-thrown micaceous clay pots, and flame-worked glasses with unique imperfections—when it comes to outfitting our kitchens, we're looking for more than just utility. We want something that speaks to the allure of our favorite room, and all over America, artisans are channeling their creativity into handmade housewares. Some have backgrounds working with food, like pastry chef turned metal worker Ann Ladson; others, like napkin designer Annabel Inganni, draw inspiration from their childhood kitchens. Whatever the medium—glass, fabric, clay—each artisan brings past experience and singular traditions to the workbench. The “Made in America” stamp never looked better. Follow along with our legend below.
