There’s something about the tactile experience of using matches that makes them a lovely way to begin your relaxation ritual. Sleek storage and display for your matches. The bottom half of the container is unglazed – if you can score some safety matches, try your hand at striking one off the underside of the container. Make it a set with the Striker Storage Jar.
Handmade stoneware match safe thrown on the pottery wheel. Looks great on the fireplace mantle or your rolling tray.
Dishwasher safe, although handwashing will prolong the life of the object.
About the Maker
Niki Marie Groulx is a Canadian ceramic artist and designer making small batch handmade production pieces in her home studio. Niki and her husband are both makers and business partners – first they built up their contracting company together so that they could then buy a home in the country with enough room for Niki’s ceramic studio… and some chickens, as you do. She was just starting to dream up accessories when we introduced ourselves.
Working primarily in porcelain and stoneware, she makes functional and decorative ceramics with the hope of enriching and adding beauty to a person’s everyday rituals. Niki’s home and studio are an extension of the style she has developed: modern, clean, fresh palettes with little accents of personality and colour.
