Instagram: @stonedwarecompany

BIO: Ariel has been working with clay since she was a kid and started her first business RELM Studios in 2013 as a platform to make and sell ceramic home decor. After the legalization of cannabis in Oregon she decided to combine passions and start making design focused smoking wares, specifically for users who don’t identify with “stoner culture”. With the help of a few special ladies, Ariel lovingly produces each piece from scratch in her Portland studio. GREEN ENVY: Ariel has created a new stylish smoking experience, Stonedware pipes feel great in your hand and look chic on your table. Combining high end modern design and handmade craftsmanship Stonedware Company creates smoking wares that are made to be displayed as art in your home.

BIO: Britta launched Hollow in 2016, from a need to elevate her smoking experience and fit the aesthetic of her lifestyle. With a background in jewelry making (brittaambauen.com), she approached the creation of Hollow pipes as a new pendant, paying attention to form, feel, and elegance. She sculpted the pipes in clay and the early test version were Hollow out by hand. After settling on her favorite designs, she started working with a slip caster to create the opening line of size, white, mat finish pipes. GREEN ENVY: Britta finds the best projects can be started through the kind of exciting, creative vision that develops while enjoying one’s favorite flower.

Mia SCHACHTER Potter/Owner, Paperclip Pottery Instagram: @paperclippottery

BIO: Mia has been doing wheelthrown and hand-built pottery for several years around New York and is currently based in Brooklyn. Primarily interested in pottery as part of the Craftivism movement, Mia seeks to waste little material, energy, and time. Form and function are not mutually exclusive, and can both be uplifted through thoughtful design. Her work is mostly about elevating the mundane habits we have to an artful ritual. Pottery is inherently political to Mia, so she feels connected to her political motivations simply by doing it. She says, “The objects I make obviously speak to my beliefs about the stigma surrounding weed. Pottery is not about more, bigger, and faster; it’s about a connection to human history, a connection to our bodies, and an allaround awareness of our own mood and the needs of the clay”. GREEN ENVY: Mia is currently doing a residency in Japan as part of her continuing education. She has been profiled in the Cannacurious blog, and is looking at making dishes for a restaurant in Bushwick, NY.
