We’ve loved Luna Garcia pottery for a long time here in the studio, so I was super excited to be able to visit the actual store and workshop while we were in LA. There is a back room where you can find pieces that are slightly different from the main collection, and I wanted to buy a few to celebrate the trip.
My husband and I have seven Luna Garcia dishes – many of them from our wedding – and love them. The four colors we chose were celadon, pistachio, butter, and mustard – but here’s a full chart of the current colors they offer. In the back room, I also found a subtly gorgeous slate gray color.
Cindy Ripley, the owner and founder was there to tell me that only a few weeks before, Robert Downey Jr. had stopped by and ordered a full set of slate gray and butter dinnerware. The gray is technically discontinued, but Cindy laughed about how quickly they opened up the old glazes for RDJ. I can’t resist the Ironman either, and Cathy’s birthday was right around the corner, so this is what just arrived in Austin: The Luna Downey Jr. combo.
