About the artists

alexa villanueva – lexa luna studio (Sunday only)
Handmade ceramics, The Future Ancestor Tarot Deck and Companion Book, original 2024 Illustrated Moon Calendar ✨
@lexalunastudio on IG 

lexa luna studio is a workshop that offers handmade ceramics and tools to accompany you and your daily rituals: from grounding mugs to illustrated tarot decks and calendars. Created by Filipina-American artist and mother, Alexa Villanueva, this studio strives to bring gentle magic to the home and serve in your journeys of self reflection and healing.

Day Moon Press
Letterpress-printed goods and handmade book arts 

Day Moon Press is a family owned and operated letterpress print shop, working as both custom and retail printers in Seattle for over 40 years. Founded by Maura Shapley, and now continued by her daughter Tess, in the retail arm we work primarily with antique handset type, cuts, and hand-carved wood and linoleum blocks. We make cards, broadsides, hand-bound journals, illustrative prints, and small books set letter by letter in lead type, putting old techniques and materials to new purpose.

Debora Spencer
Paintings of powerful women

Debora is a painter, muralist, pro photographer, and all-around exuberant maker of beauty. 

Golden Repair
Gift Wrap Lab – a unique and hands-on experience for individuals who want to add a special touch to their gift-giving. Say goodbye to generic wrapping paper and embrace the joy of creating your own hand painted paper with our mobile printmaking station.

Golden Repair is led by Luz Bratcher. After nearly two decades of experience in the user experience design industry, Luz discovered she was less interested in making things and wanted to make spaces for people to explore art mediums while learning about their creative souls. In this post-pandemic season where it’s easy to move too fast and alone, reorienting can feel simply monumental. Art invites us to slow down and get curious as a way to process, heal, and integrate our experiences.

Laura BrodaxModern Glaze
Transferware ceramics; vases, tumblers, soap dishes, souvenir series large plates, small plates and tiny bowls 

Laura Brodax is a ceramic artist and photographer. She combines original photography, drawings and found patterns to customize stories on tile murals and porcelain wares. Inspired by antique Asian and English pottery, urban ephemera and nature’s sensitive chaos, she brings these ideas forward through transferring underglaze onto clay. Commissioned tile murals can be found in many locations in the Puget Sound Region. She operates the storefront studio and gallery Modern Glaze, located in the long fade between Greenwood and Shoreline.

Mandy Greer – Mandy Greer Studio
Luscious elevated pom poms and weavings

Mandy has been making lush, immersive fiber installations for more than two decades. Mandy Greer Studio is her project to bring her sensibilities to the smaller immersive installation we all are making all the time — our homes. Our homes create a kind of sigil of who we are, and how we see ourselves, and our histories. Each MGS piece has its own story. But all are part of her process of seeking to get to the mythical energy of place — whether it is the layers of action and unspoken stories of graffiti walls in the city, or the deep seductive mystery of our gloomy mossy forests in the PNW, or the narratives of texture from wherever she travels.

Spill The Tee
Handcrafted shirts, glassware, and more

Spill The Tee, a Seattle based small business that celebrates diversity and inclusivity in our collections. Specializing in screen printing and reverse dyeing apparel, Cristina Buenaventura crafts unique and trendy designs that reflect their Filipino/mixed heritage. Alongside apparel, they also design glassware, rainbow catchers, greeting cards, and more! 

Featuring two Seattle plant growers, Plant.Root.Love (from Ravenna) and Bird Berry Nursery (from Beacon Hill). In addition, we’ll have incredible artist made ceramic planters from @AmyKastelin ceramics (from Ballard).

plantbaby is a Seattle-based, sustainable plant marketplace with a mission to unlock the plant diversity in our communities by working with local growers to market their plants online with the option for delivery in the Seattle area with the care your plants deserve.

Jil Smith Insatiable Studios
Handmade lampshades and lamps

Jil Smith has been making handmade and bespoke lampshades and lighting fixtures for 30 years. Her work can be seen at the Seattle Art Museum shop. She maintains a showroom at her Greenlake workshop and sees people by appointment. Jil has a long and lovely partnership with Kristin Nelson of KriKri who makes lamp bases as well as tableware ceramics. Their collaboration has produced a series of smaller lamps perfect for gift giving this holiday season. 

Stefan Gruber
Stefan Gruber (they/them) is making shirts, zines, stickers, comics and pottery all based on their animation cast of characters that’ll also be there for sharing!

Stefan is an experimental animator and performance artist who creates hand-drawn, digitally finished experimental animation shorts. They are animation department founder and teacher at The Nova Animation Project and the founder of Seattle Experimental Animation Team (SEAT).

xerxes irani
Pottery that isn’t very holiday themed, but stuff that really warms the heart

Xerxes makes things because he has to. He doesn’t really choose what he makes, it just kind of spins out of the wheel through his hands in the form of clay. Minimal is the general approach to the forms in his work with a sprinkle of mark making and typography to adorn those forms. He works a tech job during the day, lives on Bainbridge Island and is also writing this in third person so it sounds like someone wrote it for him.

janet galore
Cards, mugs, t-shirts, flip books, mini-terrariums, and surprises

janet galore is an artist and designer based on Beacon Hill, Seattle. They co-direct The Grocery Studios with their partner, demi raven, and their chihuahua, Ernesto, who sometimes art directs photo shoots.
