Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
January 2014 Designer Joshua Klein & Chef Jason Fullilove has selected our counter plate, fire table & baby bowl + a new small dish -all brown body, glazed in our whiskey blue-for their new spot on the Malibu Pier. We are thrilled to be working with all these exceptional chefs and very excited about our new venture with Chef Fullilove and the Malibu Pier team.
/update March 2014, with custom stamp in hand we will be impressing select pieces for the Malibu Pier collection with the MALIBU PIER logo, let the countdown begin!
/update March 2014, getting ready to glaze the collection and execute final firing, bringing the clay to full maturation. The glaze hardens in the final fire for a more durable body + decorative layer creating a glass like coat over the stoneware clay. This firing is a one -two week cycle and yields anywhere from 1-24 pieces per firing.
December 2013 Executive Chef Vartan Abgaryan of Cliff’s Edge in Silverlake has both the quail egg and stormy grey Counter Plate and has placed a special order for a small butter dish in our signature style
July 2013 Petersen is in production on plates, bowls and table service ‘pourers’ for Chef Matt McCallister‘s FT33 in Dallas, TX. A beautiful grey finish has come out of our relationship as well as a funky & functional pourer.
/update March 2014 we are finally sending out the final box of goods to Chef!
