Hello. We [Foran | Suon] are a Seattle based design team who specialize in crafting innovative pottery, sculptural objects, and home decor. Our products find intersections between fine art and design, ceramics and architecture, traditional craft and 3D printing technology. Together, we combine inspirations from pattern and textiles, historical pottery and sculpture to make fine art vessels, candle light holders, planters, home decor, and art objects. We create collectible items and we welcome clients who are interested in wholesale orders, weddings, special events, architecture, dining, retail, and interior design.
We are proud to support different non-profit organizations dedicated to the arts, innovation, and education. In summer months, we mentor talented intern team members pursuing careers in creative fields.
