Frances is honored to be a contributor to The Kinfolk Table: Recipes for Small Gatherings -- a new cookbook from the wonderful editors of Kinfolk magazine.
Kinfolk invited 45 tastemakers to contribute recipes to the collection, and Frances was happy to share a few favorites with them. She delights in knowing that her recipes will be used at shared gatherings among friends and families.
In the editors' words: "The book reflects our ideas about the way we believe entertaining should be: comfortable, simple, slow and meaningful."
On September 9, 2013, Niagara Ceramics, the manufacturer of the Pearl Collection, abruptly closed its doors. We were deeply saddened by this news – both for the employees of the factory and for the implications this has for Frances Palmer Pottery.
At this time, Pearl Collection pieces are no longer available for sale. We are in the process of exploring options for the future of the Pearl Collection and will keep you posted with updates. We are very grateful to all our customers who have enjoyed the products over the years.
Frances will continue to create her handmade collection in her Connecticut studio. We hope our pottery will continue be a part of your celebrations and homes for many years to come.
Join us on September 22 from 10am - 4pm for Conservancy Open Day!
Frances' large cutting garden will be open to the public for tours. Her garden is especially known for its dahlias; she plants more than 100 different shapes—from the smallest "pom" to the largest dinner plate varieties. Colors and textures abound, dahlias interweave with tomatoes, zinnias, amaranth, sunflowers, and herbs. September is the height of the garden's abundance.
