Busy Hands Studio plays with a lot of mediums - ceramics, embroidery, puppetry, knitting, sculpture, printing, illustration, sewing, design, writing, collecting, baking, and more. Our hands do a lot, and both pairs of hands touch every product we make throughout the process. Their mission is to support the daily rituals and artistic process of creative people: painters, culinary artists, sewists, crafters & tinkerers. All of thier products use high quality earthly materials and fine craftsmanship to bring beauty to your space. Like us, they care about the environment and are inspired by the natural world. They are worried about climate change and the prevalence of plastic everywhere in our world. Thus, they are mindful and consider the environment with every purchase and creative decision we make. Busy Hands Studio use regional clay and reclaim every scrap of it. They reuse packaging materials from neighbors and local businesses. They use found objects in our creations. When you purchase products that are crafted by them, you’re supporting our intentions and ethics. Based out of Jackson, Michigan.
The minimalist pin cushion is slow crafted organically and mindfully and it truly feels that way. The Minimalist Ceramic-Wool Pin Cushion is perfect for the seamstress, sewist, embroiderer, crafter, and textile artist in your life. Vessels are hand-thrown by us in Michigan, USA. We collaborated with our local organic farm, Sandy Acres, using wool from their heritage breed Jacob’s Sheep. We felted and shaped the wool to fit perfectly in our vessels, which sit perfectly on your table!
