Press Kit Because your purchase should be an heirloom, not a hassle. Because objects are an essential part of your personal history. Because memories should be created, not collected. Because life is too short to be surrounded by anything less than beautiful. Because stories are handed down, not mass-produced. Because design should be timeless and craft should be authentic. Because your objects tell a narrative. Your narrative.

ABOUT PIGEON TOE Pigeon Toeâ€™s aspiration is simple: to provide mankind with everyday beauty. Highly curated and refined, each piece is culled from skilled hands, trained minds and inspired hearts. Founded in 2009, our studio exists in the heart of charming Southeast Industrial Portland. Featuring artisan objects that transcend trends, each piece is an attempt to redefine a new age of homegrown, grassroots aesthetics. Our designs are naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully charming. Each piece is treasured. Beautiful. Authentically hand-crafted. Each object emanates enduring value. The result? Heirlooms that are hardly oldfashioned. Objects that appear discovered, rather than acquired. Objects with a vision, a purpose. A heritage. Objects with a story. kerr votive lantern
ABOUT THE DESIGNER After learning how to throw in fourth grade, designer Lisa Jones spent a lifetime avoiding pottery. From graphic design to marketing to video installation, Jones steered clear from life in craft until her longing to work with her hands took her full-circle, back to her days as a 9-year-old ceramicist. With an aversion to fast-paced and massproduced goods, Lisa formed Pigeon Toe with a vision to design uniquely beautiful objects that incorporate a touch of history in every piece. The sort of history that can be valued, but not bought. Treasured, but not replicated. Now in Pigeon Toeâ€™s third year of existence, Lisa recently introduced a new collection of treasured wares produced by local artisans. With a focus on craft, handmade and homespun goods, each Pigeon Toe piece represents a story woven with rich heritage. Pigeon Toe is a creative evolution. Much like each design developed in Portland, Lisa has lovingly curated a sustainable, aware collection harking back to an era where artisans not only create, but inspire.
