Introducing: Mica Black

Introducing: Mica Black

We live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. This area is rich with minerals and gems. While hiking through the mountains around Asheville the ground glitters with mica that has been ground into the soil. If you know where to look, you can find a full stack of the sheets of the crystallized mineral. When the stacks of sheets get big enough it is called a book. Mica is formed in a variety of colors, but it is fragile and translucent when it is broken down to a single sheet. This fall, Nick was hiking through shining rock and found a book of mica that was pure black. This inspired our new black glaze - Mica Black.

The High Contrast Cup Collection

The High Contrast Cup Collection

Something that we are passionate about at The Bright Angle is finding ways to support artists, and one of our favorite ways to do this is through our Design Residency Program. Daniel Garver came to us after spending a two year fellowship at Penland School of Crafts and is an artist of many mediums. While he was here he created this limited edition collection just for us! The cups are American made one by one with the finest porcelain that we mix from scratch here in our studio. The High Contract Cup Collection will be listed in our shop this Saturday at 9am EST and they are sure to go quickly.  Once they are gone you won't be able to get them again.
