One of Martha's favourite potters is Guy Wolff. Based in Washington, Connecticut,Guy was discovered by Martha years ago on one of her many excursions through the state to seek out the best craftspeople and artisans. He has since become her favourite potter and her homes are filled with examples of his pieces, many of them custom-made for Martha. Wolff has been doing his art since 1971 and he is a big believer in architectural pottery, pots that stand the test of time, both in terms of their functionality and their style. Drawing inspiration from the 18th and 19th centuries, Wolff is as prolific as any of the great masters. Martha has had him on her show numerous times and always extolls the virtues of his work.
Now, any of us can enjoy the beauty of his work in our own homes, thanks to a recent wholesale partnership with Restoration Hardware, a home-furnishings store that launched in California over 30 years ago and that, today, has become a leader in the industry. You can view some of his pieces below or at the Restoration Hardware website.
