A Portland, OR-based company, Pigeon Toe Ceramics produces high-quality ceramic pieces for the home. Fine artist and former graphic designer Lisa Jones takes the homegrown, local aesthetic to heart, hand throwing each piece from clay sourced and manufactured in the city of Portland, and firing them in a kiln powered by solar and wind energy.

Jones' Spring 2010 collection includes plant hangers, crockery and a series of pendant lights, all with Pigeon Toe's trademark simple lines, unassuming colors and clean, luminous simplicity.

In addition to commissioned and pre-made wares, Jones also collaborates with local female artists to produce limited-edition edition runs of hand-painted pieces. Known as PTC+, the series includes work by Alyson Graves, Kelly Britton Andreini, and Alia Smith.
