We love working with people who are as passionate about their craft as we are. This holiday season (starting December 6th) we are featuring two local artists in the 7D Kitchen at Crave Kensington hand their handmade goods, perfect for holiday gifting. The Made By Pollock Pop Up Shop will be open daily with regular Kensington Bakery hours.
Made by Pollock
Keli Pollock is a Calgary Art Director/Designer and has been working in the industry for over 20 years. We worked with Keli in redesigning our logo and new look at Kensington. Growing up in Medicine Hat, home to many clay based factories, it's only natural that Keli has been playing with clay since she was a child. Influenced by her design background, Keli's pieces have a minimal aesthetic and refined colour palette. Through the process of slip casting high fire porcelain, her vessels are simple in form, highly tactile and always food safe. We love these comfortable, functional and beautiful pieces and hope you do too!
Ingrained Woods is the creative outlet of Mark Shannon, a professional photographer based in Calgary. Having always been drawn to working with wood, the shop was founded in 2014 with the aim of producing one of a kind functional works of art in a variety of hardwoods. Drawing from years of visual inspiration, the handmade designs are driven as much by imagination as the wood itself - guided by the grain, the knots and the colouration. Pieces to be used in food preparation use food safe glue, and are sealed with an organic beeswax/mineral oil finish. In addition to kitchen-destined pieces, Ingrained Woods also makes hardwood fly boxes for both conversation and ideally to be used on the water. Each unique piece features recessed barrel hinges and rare-earth magnetic catches along with inset ripple foam. Custom pieces, laser etching/engraving, and commissioned work available by request.
