Not Made in China

When I saw Hugo Didier‘s booth at the Spring One of a Kind Show, I quite literally ran across the aisle to check it out. I mean, really. A shop with the name “Not Made in China” is pretty much up my alley, right?

M. Didier is a 3rd generation ceramic artist, and desires to merge the traditional with modern. His “not made in china” artwork on many of the pieces is meant to promote and encourage the idea of buying locally made goods. That’s a message I can get behind.

The small coffee cups are lovely…

… but I personally prefer the larger ones. The better for drinking the most tea possible!

Et, biensûr, la petite poutinière est parfaitement Québecoise et Canadienne!

You can take a look at more of Hugo’s ceramics on his site HugoDidier.com and on Etsy, and find him on Facebook and Twitter, as well as at various shows and expos.

And there you have it, our first “maker” feature in far too long. Not Made in China kicks off our 2nd time around with Canadian+Handmade. Happy to be back!

Cheers to that,
