Local San Diego Artisans

Hi all! It was an incredibly busy holiday season and now that the dust has settled, we’re getting back into the swing of things. For our first blog of the year, we’re sharing some of our favorite go to San Diego artisans. We love showcasing the best of what our local community has to offer and incorporating those items into our designs whenever possible. Here are some of our recent projects featuring these “native” artisans. Hope you enjoy!

Skoby Joe Ceramics | La Jolla, California

Joe Skoby specializes in singularly beautiful ceramics. Each piece is carefully handcrafted and leaves you with the sense that great care and consideration was taken to shape, glaze and fire every piece. Our team was fortunate enough to visit Skoby at his picturesque and verdant home studio in La Jolla. Check out his instagram @skobyjoe for his latest creations.

Open Table Furniture | San Diego, California 

Andrew DePalma of Open Door Furniture has created some truly memorable pieces of furniture for our team. With his incredible attention to detail and superior craftsmanship skills, he pushes the limits of traditional furniture design. We’ve commissioned Andrew to construct some custom items for projects, a few of which can be found on the Open Door Furniture site, alongside his other creations.
