Kiwi Urn | Hello Moon Studios

Hello Moon Studios consists of Rick and Amy Bain and their 2 children, Elva and Thurston. A family of artists, Rick and Amy are both professional musicians as well as potters. The Bain’s make all their lovely porcelain in their home studio with their children playing around them. Their daughter, Elva, has started making her own porcelain magnets she occasionally sells, along with her drawings, next to her father at the local weekend market and at various Art Nights around town. Their son, Thurston, has just learned to draw and is doing amazingly well just like his sister, he seems to prefer science experiments lately, more than anything else. “Both our children love to play in the clay with us!”

Amy started working with master potter, Andrew MacCorkindale in the very early 90’s. He taught her everything she knows. He is a dear friend and wonderful teacher. Andrew hired many local artists to work in his shop, it was always an amazing place to be. Rick worked with Andrew also and learned the trade directly from him as well.

Rick and Amy bought Andrews business, MacCorkindale Porcelain, in 2002 (just 2 short weeks before they had their first child) and continued his work while adding more to the line.
