If you haven’t yet checked out HOME WORK, our exhibit at the Betts House, or if you simply can’t get enough, now’s your last chance — it’s open 11am-2pm on Tue, Wed and Thu, and also 12:30-5pm this Saturday for a Family Fun Saturday. This intimate historic home is perfect for displaying our small, architecturally inspired home accessories.

We started this project by photographing the many examples of ornament found on 19th century buildings in Over-the-Rhine, where we live:

We traced the ornamentation and reconfigured it into designs for ceramic pieces like serving bowls, egg cups, salt and pepper shakers, and a bud vase:

These architecturally inspired chipboard coasters are perfect for a party — we package them as a baker’s dozen, and each one is unique:

The table runners and throw pillows were screenprinted by hand using different combinations of repeating patterns, so that each textile piece is unique:

Built in 1804, the Betts House has been part of Cincinnati’s history for over two hundred years. Built in 1804, it is located at 416 Clark St. in the Betts-Longworth Historic District, in the city’s West End. In 1995 the oldest surviving brick building in Cincinnati became the Betts House Research Center, a place dedicated to the study of building materials and traditions.
