Happy Thanksgiving! A gift for you...

for fun, opportunityCatherine Grisez4 Comments

In this season of gratitude I’m giving thanks for many things - family, friends, joy in being creative, beautiful places to embrace nature, and of course all the support and love I’ve felt from you over the years. It’s easy to loose self-esteem and have growing doubts when spending a lot of time alone in the studio - your words of encouragement and purchases of my work mean the world to me and remind me that my artistic contributions to the world mean something.

As a token of my appreciation I’m giving away a piece of jewelry AND a Bitty Bowl. My way of celebrating Black Friday is to GIVE.

What are you thankful for?

Open Studio - October 14

for fun, new work, shows, opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

I’m very excited to show off my new jewelry line inspired by hiking Mt St Helen’s this summer as well as a new line of hand sketched enamel copper bowls.

October 14th / 11am - 4pm

Please join Ann Chikahisa with Chikahisa Studio and myself for our fall open house! It’s been 4 years since we last opened our doors to the public so this chance doesn’t come around often.

Come for a mimosa and snacks, stay for the jewelry and art! You’ll get first dibs at my newest work plus I’ll have some discounted classics available.

For any of my students… this is a great chance to come check out my holloware set-up. I’m happy to talk shop and answer your questions.

Doors will be open Sunday, October 14th from 11am - 4:00pm @ 1244 S Concord St. Seattle, WA 98108

Feel free to bring friends. We look forward to seeing you!

Pizza and Pearls for Peace

shows, for fun, opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

Thursday September 21st is International Peace Day. To celebrate, I'm teaming up with World Pizza, Kobo, and API Chaya to bring you a fun excuse to do good. And possibly win free pearl earrings and slices of pizza in the process!

At a time when it seems the world is coming to an end with insane storms, wildfires, and earthquakes, it's important we remember people who've been suffering beyond the affects of natural disasters - victims of violence. Everyone deserves a peaceful life.

To participate, simply go shopping!
A percentage of sales will go to API Chaya.
API Chaya supports survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.

As an added bonus, 5 of you lucky pizza eaters will find a giant Sugarfina chocolate pearl atop your pizza. Ding ding ding! This means you've won a pair of sterling silver and pearl earrings pictured above. Go to Kobo to redeem your prize by September 30th.

and

Up to 10 of you luckies with newly purchased jewels (some of which are pictured below) will win a free slice of pizza. You'll be able to redeem your slice at World Pizza anytime until the end of the year.

During this event 10% of whole pie* purchases and 20% of all CG Sculpture and Jewelry sales at Kobo will be donated to API Chaya. For those of you not in Seattle, I will also donate 20% from online jewelry sales to the cause.

*valid for dine in pizza orders only - winners will be chosen at random - prizes must be picked up by September 30th

There you have it... it's a win win. You get some delicious pizza and/or fun new jewelry for your fall wardrobe and we raise money to help survivors of horrific violent situations into a more peaceful happy life.

If you are not in Seattle and unable to attend - I'm extending this offer to my website as well. 20% of all online jewelry sales between September 21-23 will also go to API Chaya.

Thank you for participating and helping a great cause!

Free earrings for your mama!

opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

Mother's Day is coming up and if my mom taught me anything, it is how to be a generous gift giver (of course that's in addition to her being a crazy awesome selfless giver of love, support, and fun!) . So in celebration of my mom and all your superwomen moms out there, I'm giving a free pair of matching earrings with all necklace purchases this week. 

No need to do anything extra, no code needed. I'll simply include a pair of earrings with every necklace purchase. Free!

Through this Sunday, May 7th.

Copper leaves for you?!

new work, opportunityCatherine GrisezComment

This Saturday is the Pratt auction and your chance to own Part You, the collaborative copper leaf sculpture we all made! Imagine an interior or exterior wall of your house covered in copper leaves, or a growth of them floating down from your ceiling, or perhaps a shelf of your bookcase converted to a forest floor diorama, or ??? The possibilities are only limited by your space and/or imagination! Comment below if you have another great display idea or location for this unique piece...
