maryhill clayworks + clever gift wrap

by Grace Bonney

yesterday i heard from talented ceramicist jacques schickel of maryhill clayworks. in addition to having a lovely collection of ceramics available for sale- i was positively nutty about the gorgeous hand-painted gift wrap project he showcased on his studio blog. i’ve always wanted to switch to entirely hand-made gift wrap for the holiday season and this is definitely the inspiration i needed to get started on ideas for this year. jacques final project reminds me of one of tord boontje‘s wonderful woodland designs and would be perfect for a shower, housewarming, birthday or holiday gift. click here to check out jacques’ process and here to check out jacques’ work at maryhill clayworks.
