Sunken Orchard Ceramics
Elegant, yet rustic, functional pottery. Incorporating an antique lace pattern, made by my great grandmother, into each piece.
What inspired you to start your business?
Raffaela Vergata is a maker of functional pottery who lives and works in New York. Raffaela uses herlooms from her family to create her work. Primarily focused on impressing her great grandmother’s lace into her wears. Elegant yet rustic, each piece is hand made from slab. Using mostly matte glaze and exposed clay she strives to create a country asthetic for things we use every day.
What makes your house a home?
Having friends around. Living in midtown manhattan, it is very easy for friends to stop by all day. I love hosting my friends and serving snacks on my handmade wares.
Why did you choose to be part of the Nest? :)
I from the area! I'm always looking for an opportunity to be a part of a creative community and Nest shares a similar aesthetic.
