Andrea Barbosa is a creative living in Austin, TX, and specializing in small batch pottery. Every Javelina Ranch piece is lovingly made with her two hands. When she's not at the wheel, she enjoys thrifting, styling, sewing, and long walks to the fridge for a nice glass of rose. Her favorite day is Sunday, when she and Pete listen to Van the Man and do domestic like things. Oh, and their pups love sofa time. When it happens. Not that it does. Too often, that is.
Stoneware and custom glazes. All items are food safe unless otherwise noted; which is rare. It'll be really called out in the description if it's not food safe. Promise.
Every piece is either wheel thrown or hand-built from hand-rolled slabs. Like with all things handmade, each piece is unique. Even within a set you can see subtle variations in the shape and glaze—you can tell that they're siblings, made by the same two hands, but they're not twins. There's a certain beauty in the perfectly imperfect.
This little brand has been named in the hopes of something bigger to come one day. Javelina Ranch is just a home on the east side; and to be there now already feels like a dream come true. Hopefully, in the future there will be a parcel of land here in Texas that's perfect for the name, the studio, the event space, and the home that for now is only envisioned in daydreams. Until then, little pieces of that dream come to life in the things that are made along the way.
HUGE thanks to Skip Hobbie Productions for making this film for me!
I get so many compliments on my logo and consistent branding throughout my website & packaging—and for that I owe a HUGE thank you to Ann Marie Flamenco, the main squeeze over at The Brand Stand. Her Identity package has done so so much for Javelina Ranch!
