I often name limited production pieces after the places I have recently visited. This is the case with Coronado Bowl. In February – just before the pandemic seized travel in California, I went to San Diego with my sisters and daughter. The trip was fast, beautiful and fantastic. It’s kind of funny because it’s never the biggest moments that stand out in memory right? On one of our days, we walked and walked. I was tired and feeling a little under the weather and was lagging behind. We stopped for a rest at Seaport Village and did a little people watching. As I looked out over the bay at the Naval Station that was once the center of our family at least one lifetime ago, it was striking how life had truly come full circle. There I was, with the my familial tribe, across time and the bay. An almost indescribable feeling of being at home in a place I’ve never been before.
This vessel is based upon a Christmas gift from one life-long bff to another. The original vessel was a bit smaller, and based upon the friends’ favorite colors.

You can’t live in the Lodi Appellation and avoid the build up of anticipation for the grape harvest. It starts at the beginning of summer, as the grapes begin to take shape on the vine. As harvest nears, passers by can see the fruit visible from the road as they drive past mile after mile of vineyards. In Fall, just as the summer heat is at its peak, wine making fever takes over. It’s harvest time. The annual festival is on and hundreds of wineries hold grape stomp events in which adventurous souls step into the vat and stomp the juice from grapes with bare feet. This bowl hails from the Lodi Appellation – an area that is world-renown for its wine.
