Suite one Studio is lead by Lindsay Emery, the owner, designer and ceramicist behind the brand. The studio is focused on Contemporary tableware that will turn your meal time more special.
Suite One Studio is a modern, handmade tableware line founded in 2009 by Lindsay Emery. Each piece is made entirely by hand and topped with bright, cheerful, handmade glazes.
“Suite One Studio items are produced in short runs in my cozy studio in North Carolina. The small-batch nature of my work results in coveted limited editions. I work with high-quality porcelain, formulate my own chic, colorful glazes inspired by watercolor paintings, and finish many of my pieces with a delicate flourish of genuine gold. Exclusive collaborations are available through a select handful of high-end boutiques and thoughtfully curated shops around the world.
She says “I have a broad aesthetic vision paired with the simple desire to make mealtimes more beautiful.”Lindsay states
Few things make me happier than good food shared with good people. I work to design and make tableware special enough to accompany the heartfelt gatherings that make up some of our most memorable moments together. In short, I believe that your plates should earn their seat at your table and that together we can make mealtimes everywhere more beautiful.
She draws inspiration from watercolor paintings when formulating the custom glazes for her undulating porcelain pieces. Each dish in this collection is painted by hand and finished in gold.
Her true focus is food. “Food is always central to my tableware designing process. I think about the food a piece will serve, what the needs of that dish are (hot soups stay hot longest if served in a bowl with higher cupped sides rather than in a shallow, wide bowl) and then consider things like the color and texture of the food. From there I look to create interesting surfaces to complement these qualities.”
