and we’re FOUR + our annual birthday giveaway


Hello! Happy Holidays!


And  well, Happy Birthday to Herriott Grace.
Back in November we turned FOUR!
Can you believe it?


Truth be told, it wasn’t long ago that HG
was a teeny little holiday shop
I worked on during my spare time in university.
And while we’re still pretty wee,
it means the world to us to be here.


So thank you.
Thank you for supporting what we do
and for making this whole thing




And in honour of our special day,
we’re giving a few things away.
The large (and beautiful) pedestal in this photo (!!)
as well as a few other treats from the HG workshop.
Leave a comment on this post
and we’ll choose a winner at random
on December 18, 2012. (check back here December 21, 2012)



And if you’re a new visitor here, welcome!
If you haven’t done so already, you can learn a little more about us here.
Find our recent press here and well, catch up on what we’ve been up to, here.




Plus, they is a lot in store for the holidays!
Stirring spoons (my fave!),
rustic pedestals,
porcelain dishes,
evergreen gift wrap,
egg coddlers,
dessert plates,
table laterns
and detailed pins are all back in stock.


And our cloud cookie cutters
will be back again soon.

    Congratulations on 4 years of success in a world that moves too fast and oftentimes ignores the beauty of those precious objects made by hand. As a potter I feel so strongly the value of working with one’s hands and the joy of wallowing in the process of creation. It is something I hope I am passing on to my daughter, who is only slightly younger than you are!

    Your talents and philosophy are the best heirlooms you could ever pass on.

    Happy Birthday!

    I come from a family of wood workers and wood hoarders. My memories are of my grandfather, great uncles, uncle, and father puttering at their workbench on dark winter days, prowling their stacks of precious woods – cedar, ebony, arbutus, and so much more – just to find the right piece for a guitar inlay or the perfect shim. Your website and your father remind me of these beloved people. I love your sensibility and the the work you do and hungrily check each update! And the photos are fantastic. Your success is so well deserved and I wish you sustainable growth for many more years.

  458. Lynne Berry says:

    Well congrats on the four wonderful years. What an honor it must be to work along side your father. That is priceless. I am totally obsessed with wood. Totally, totally love your unique pieces.

The wood, the serendipitous finding of it, how it was “turned” to a different use, made its way to you and then my being lucky enough to snag the precious piece from your website. Thank you for all the little happenstances that brought the beauty to me! Merry Christmas, too!

    It always makes my day brighter when one of your emails comes though.
    Wishing a myriad of magical birthday wishes.
    What you do with your Dad is truly heartwarming. Not to mention that I adore your product and attention to detail. It was so exciting to get my cloud cookie cutter in the mail, everything and every tiny thing about it is perfect. At the moment I keep it out as a piece of art, it was meant for a gift but I have not been able to part with it as of yet (and my favourite thing to do it give people presents so that says a lot).

    Thanks for being you.
    Lots of love & laughter,
    Ashley xo

  991. Erik Henderson says:

    Happy Birthday and Happy Holidays. I just finished watching the Herriott Grace video on Vimeo and immediately after sat down at my desk to visit the website. The beauty behind this endeavor is the philosophy that has been firmly planted by your father. Once a passion turns into a job it’s time to walk away. I have seen my father struggle all his life to provide for his family, sadly it took me to reach my 30′s before I appreciated his efforts. He mostly fills his time now with home improvement projects teaching himself along the way. In my day job I am an accountant and I’m sure it makes him proud to see what I have become, but recently there isn’t a day that goes by that I look down at my hands and I feel I should be using them towards a stronger purpose building things as he has done. Here is to 4 more years and for your father’s passion to continue to carry on.

  992. Allana says:

    Wow! 4 years, and what a mark you have both made on the handmade world in that time! Congratulations. We love our cloud cutter and it is such a special part of our birthday celebrations when we bring out our beeswax candles. Thankyou for such a generous giveaway opportunity! Whoever wins will be blessed indeed :)
