GLAZE LAB // MARCH 2019
For the March edition of Glaze Lab, we wanted to share with subscribers our joy in overcoming a tough challenge in surface creation: matte. The majority of our wares come in a satin or glossy finish, but for the past six months we've been experimenting to produce an ultra-matte finish with a flatter appearance and grittier surface texture.
After many tests (many ugly, flaking, gnarly tests) we created this ultra-matte in a coral-blush using a tinted, atomized engobe. Applied to the surface of our standard bud vase and lined with a clear gloss glaze, we think it is something special.

F+F @ NINObrand
Our buddies at NINObrand in Philly were kind enough to host us for a pop-up this past month and boy did we enjoy meeting and chatting with old friends and new!
It's always great to feel the local love by doing a pop-up in Philly and by the turnout we received, you can be sure we're looking forward to our next opportunity to do so.
F+F @ AD Design Show
Talk about a busy month!
On top of everything else, we hunkered down for a weekend at the AD Design Show to show off to visitors our new colorway, experimental finishes and forms, as well as classic Felt+Fat wares in a full range of glazes.
