Cultured Finds

Featured Artisan

We love our cultural heritage, the understanding of connection, and the happiness that arises when we pause to be with each other. The genuine commitment and opening to tradition and innovation. In this, we aspire to connect familiar elements of finely crafted pieces by highly skilled artisans into today's casually sophisticated lifestyle.

We offer more than beautifully crafted pieces; we create a connection to culture and people, whether they grew alongside us across the kitchen table or newly welcomed members of our tribe. From Italian olive oil cruet, hand-embroidered tablecloths, Argentinian blankets, and alpaca wraps to vintage pieces from around the world — all these elements are part of our sobremesa collection and the experiences we bring to the community table.

The Community Table

Studio Findings’ sees the community table as a sacred place to gather, connect, and nourish. We see it as a celebration of friends, family, and a community coming together to share stories, share food, and recollect the day’s journey to indulging ears. The community table is our sanctuary to be accepted, authentic and present in the moment, honoring the ordinary and lifting the extraordinary.

We've journeyed around the world to bring cultured experiences, curated products, and the exceptional people that made them - to the table. The community table is our collective melting pot, made of a community, a culture, and global goods that share the intention to be seen, heard, and beloved.

Each product we create and curate carries a story from where it originated, the value of the hands that formed it, and now takes mindful residence at your table. In bringing these products to you, we desire to demonstrate love and appreciation for different cultures + people + experiences. We crave to connect, gather, be seen, and be nourished.

Dawn Klinger

Serving Love.

Dawn has been working in clay since she was 14 and a freshman in high school in Jupiter, Florida. She went on to graduate from the University of Arizona in Tucson with a B.F.A. in Fine Arts with an emphasis on ceramics. Her background is in sculpture and hand building. She wanted to use those skills to create a business. She decided on hand-building dinnerware using the slab techniques she used previously in her sculpture work.

“Working with clay is my craft, connecting with people is my passion, and putting good things out into the world is my love. I am ever grateful to live so close to what I value in life and the clients who choose our pieces to grace their most treasured spaces.”

Through her travels across the country, from her roots in Maryland to her current home in Oregon. She gained inspiration from the people, culture, and landscape she encountered. The colors, textures, and inspirations behind her work reflect her life experiences, personal style, and pursuit of a beautiful but uncomplicated life.

Her dinner and serving ware are beautiful and functional. They are dishwasher and microwave safe, and the slab building techniques make them extremely durable. She takes her time and infuses every piece with love and attention to detail. When you purchase her products, you can expect handmade ceramic pieces that will last a lifetime and beyond.
