Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!
Meet Monique and Dan Feldman of One of a Kind Rockport!
In your own words… what do you do? Describe the thing(s) you “make/create”
We make gorgeous handmade one of a kind Planters, dishes, and our signature Coral Reef Sculptures.
What inspires you to “make/create”
Our love of nature, plants and the beautiful phenomena that happen every day.
Roughly how much are you expecting in losses over the next month?
Almost 12 grand.
What measures are you taking to reduce lost revenue?
We have opened and expanded our Etsy store and are attempting to implement order pick up.
Any advice on what could help in this troubling and challenging time?
Just to stay positive and shop local as much as you can.
Created using Stoneware, these pieces are hand sculpted and patterned, then bisque’d before having a lead-free glaze applied and layered in gorgeous designs, making them food safe. They are then re-fired at an extremely high temperature rendering them oven and top-rack dishwasher safe as well.
