Favorite shop: Global Eye Art collective

I first met Kristen Cramer at an amazing craft show called Homespun that was held in a giant orchid greenhouse here in Santa Barbara. I was taken with her organic pottery and her obvious love for her craft.  I left with her card and a small pot for one of my many plants.

The little pot that started it all…

Fast forward several months and I learned through Instagram that Kristen would be opening a shop in beautiful Santa Ynez.  The shop is truly an art collective with pottery, linens, furniture, lighting, jewelry, art, and gifts.  I rarely leave empty handed!

I have Kristen’s pots, vases, and other vessels scattered about The Little Glass House…

I love the organic nature of Kristen’s pottery.  It works beautifully in modern or traditional settings.

But my favorite and most recent purchase is a stunning small lamp that now sits on my kitchen counter. Kristen just recently began to make lamps and I think they are perfection,  from the linen shade to the touch of brass!  Even the cord is pretty!

I’m in love with a lamp!

If you are local to the Santa Barbara area, I highly recommend a visit to this unique shop. There are also workshops, such as an upcoming wheel throwing class and a ceramic jewelry making class. If you aren’t nearby, take heart.  You can shop from Global Eye Art Collective’s website and online store!

  1. Hand made pottery has a very special feel to it, it’s more tactile and personal. I love all the little vases and that lamp, so beautiful! Thanks for sharing! xo, Eva
