Bookhou is John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj, a husband and wife design team residing in Toronto, Canada. Along with their Etsy store they also have a brick-and-mortar shop in Toronto and an online shop of their own here. They design and make items such as handbags, scarves, paper goods, ceramic items, and more inspired by the organic lines and shapes found in nature and urban landscapes. John has been trained in painting, architecture and woodworking, and Arounna started out making sculptural works before changing her focus to design and textile work. Oh, and they also have two little kiddos to raise. Their design aesthetic is that wonderful mixture of modern, urban and organic, filled with those geometric shapes we love so much these days.

Clam Lab is Clair Catillaz, currently sculpting, homebrewing, and living in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. She’s been pounding out modern ceramic lovelies for Clam Lab since 2009, but she’s no newbie to having clay-crusted clothes. She and her mom took their first ceramic class when she was 12. I’m not sure how I happened upon Clam Lab but I’ve been drooling over her pieces ever since and pinning them to Pinterest like crazy.
