alyssa ettinger


kristina and i often brainstorm projects together and a few weeks ago she came up with a great one: women to watch in 2007. we both decided it would be great to team up and combine our knowledge of both european and american design (she’s the european, i’m the american) to create a “list” of women we feel are important to acknowledge within the design industry. this will include designers, writers, people in film, etc and even those who do more untraditional jobs within the business. we’ll be interviewing each woman via email or podcast to give you a better introduction and will be sharing them on both sites. today we launch with one of my favorite designers, alyssa ettinger. based in brooklyn, alyssa creates some of the most beautiful pottery in the industry. she was kind enough to join me for lunch in park slope on saturday and let me pick her brain about running a business and finding a way to make a living doing what you love. [click here] to listen to alyssa’s full podcast and here to visit the site of the women to watch in 2007 section on d*s. i’ll be including links to all pieces written by kristina as well.

[just a note: the women featured won’t be only european or american, we’ll of course include anyone anywhere that we feel should be acknowledged]
