 My favorite way to add color to your kitchen! Bitty Bowls are perfect for the foodie in your life who loves handmade and quality design. These are great for salt, pepper, or spice it up with unusual table spices like cumin or paprika.

Pizza and Pearls for Peace

shows, for fun, opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

Thursday September 21st is International Peace Day. To celebrate, I'm teaming up with World Pizza, Kobo, and API Chaya to bring you a fun excuse to do good. And possibly win free pearl earrings and slices of pizza in the process!

At a time when it seems the world is coming to an end with insane storms, wildfires, and earthquakes, it's important we remember people who've been suffering beyond the affects of natural disasters - victims of violence. Everyone deserves a peaceful life.

To participate, simply go shopping!
A percentage of sales will go to API Chaya.
API Chaya supports survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.

As an added bonus, 5 of you lucky pizza eaters will find a giant Sugarfina chocolate pearl atop your pizza. Ding ding ding! This means you've won a pair of sterling silver and pearl earrings pictured above. Go to Kobo to redeem your prize by September 30th.

and

Up to 10 of you luckies with newly purchased jewels (some of which are pictured below) will win a free slice of pizza. You'll be able to redeem your slice at World Pizza anytime until the end of the year.

pearl-silver-jewelry_CG-Grisez.jpg

During this event 10% of whole pie* purchases and 20% of all CG Sculpture and Jewelry sales at Kobo will be donated to API Chaya. For those of you not in Seattle, I will also donate 20% from online jewelry sales to the cause.

*valid for dine in pizza orders only - winners will be chosen at random - prizes must be picked up by September 30th

There you have it... it's a win win. You get some delicious pizza and/or fun new jewelry for your fall wardrobe and we raise money to help survivors of horrific violent situations into a more peaceful happy life.

If you are not in Seattle and unable to attend - I'm extending this offer to my website as well. 20% of all online jewelry sales between September 21-23 will also go to API Chaya.

Thank you for participating and helping a great cause!

Now at Imprint Gallery - Inspiration from the Beach

shows, inspirations, new workCatherine GrisezComment

We don't need much of an excuse to visit Cannon Beach, it's beautiful! Luckily, you can also see my sculpture in this fantastic Oregon coastal town. Imprint, a new gallery and print studio there has a selection of music boxes and special one of a kind sculptures.

  Bowl No. Twenty  - sterling silver and brass, 6" x 12" x 11"

Bowl No. Twenty - sterling silver and brass, 6" x 12" x 11"

If you are familiar with my work, you know I'm often inspired by nature and the oddities found while walking on the beach or hiking in the mountains. So it's pertinent that this piece found it's way to the coast... It was inspired by the egg case of a skate/shark (otherwise known as a mermaid's purse or devil's purse), something I found while walking on the beach.

CG-Grisez_Bowl Number 20-silver and brass.JPG

These little pouches are fascinating with their tendrils and deep black color. Interestingly, the sharp tendrils exist to secure the egg cases in rocks and protect them from predators. Most egg cases that wash up on shore are empty because the creature has already hatched and is (hopefully!) swimming happily in the sea. In contrast to the black empty pod, I chose to make the interior of this piece bright white silver, a reflection of the life within and the points to represent our instincts to hold on.

A few other pieces you'll find at Imprint...

  Manifest One  - copper vessel, 5.5” x 4.75” x 3.25"
