Hollydays Recap and 2015 News!

Junior League of Louisville’s 2013 Hollydays was a wonderful and fun event despite the crazy early December weather! Friday night was cut short due to the worsening road conditions. On Saturday, although it was still bitterly cold, the sunshine and new Louisville Slugger Field location helped make spirits and shopping much more enjoyable. There were so many unique and new vendors this year from beautiful accessories to active wear to home decor, there was something for everyone. Saturday night was our Annual Girls Night Out; Candy Canes and Cocktails which featured an array for drinks and food for guests to enjoy while shopping.

Louisville Stoneware: The Art of Living!

As mentioned in our “Louisville Originals” post, Louisville Stoneware offers an excellent aray of products and is truly a cultural icon of the city.
The richness of raw materials. The perfection of a basic form. The poetry of a hand-applied brush stroke. In our machine-driven age, these natural and simple essences seem to have become a lost art.
Since our early beginnings, we have been dedicated to the craft of transforming clay into enduring, functional stoneware pottery art forms. Working with the basic elements of earth, water, air and fire, skilled artisans create timelessly beautiful dinnerware, bakeware, serving pieces, collectibles, and artisan that can be enjoyed and cherished for many generations.

Some designs are subtle—others are more striking and exuberant—but what they all have in common is an underlying belief that humble, everyday objects have an important place in our lives and homes.

As one of the oldest stoneware manufacturers in the U.S., Louisville Stoneware has been a part of the lives of generations of customers, neighbors, friends and business partners. While our company has grown over the years, we still source our clay from local suppliers and employ the talents of regional artisans.

Louisville Stoneware has a Retail Showroom where they sell Bluegrass Gatherings.  They are one of our best accounts in town.  The showroom is located at 731 Brent Street, directly off Broadway. Their hours are  Mon – Fri 10 am – 6 pm, Sat 10 am – 5 pm.  Show them your support by visiting today.
