Buy – Flight Attendant Once you have tasted flight you will forever walk the earth poster, canvas
Gold’s interest in ceramics began last year when her son took her to a pottery class for her birthday. “I started throwing and I thought, This is so much fun,” she says. “I had a studio space, and [decided] to make this a business. My son said, ‘Mom, why can’t it just be a hobby?’ That’s just not me!”
The shift from designer denim to ceramics isn’t quite as big of a leap as it seems. A seasoned entrepreneur, this is the sixth company Gold has founded, albeit the first outside of the fashion industry. (Her most recent venture, Babakul, sold bohemian clothing until the label dissolved in 2014.) But all the while, she’s also had a foot in the world of interiors and real estate: For years, Gold has been designing and staging, including flipping a number of properties. Along the way, she struggled to find a brand that produced both high-style tabletop pieces and practical home accessories like pet food bowls or entry baskets that matched her taste. Her solution? “If I don’t find something, I’ll just make it,” she says.
