This time last year, native New Yorker Greg Garry & Michael Jorris relocated from Soho, New York to LA for work.

Moving from a small NYC apartment to a spacious Park Labrea 2 bedroom has meant that Greg and Mike can spread out a bit, add to their record collection, have a guest room and for the first time garden! Their place is a combination of vintage finds, artwork that Greg has collected over the years, and pieces that Mike has made like the cameos shown below.

The bar – Absolutely fabulous!

When Greg & Mike moved to LA they had 1 crate of records…

Recently I rediscovered Beth Katz, a photo editor I had worked several years ago at Fit Pregnancy Magazine, when she popped up as I was searching for folks to follow on Instagram. Beth has a beautiful, refined sensibility, that is both elegant and calming.

I began following Beth, only to discover that she had begun making the most beautiful ceramics. Every time I saw her feed, I kept thinking, why hasn’t she been doing this forever, these are gorgeous?

But that’s not how things work, we do things how and when we do them. So now Beth has launched Mt Washington Pottery, and I made a visit to her home in Mount Washington, California to do a studio visit to get a closer look.

Beth’s work is almost all white, like her home, which is tucked up into a hillside, surrounded by trees. Thus, this COLOR STUDY, is devoted to her and her work. Enjoy!
