We’ve been fans of Portland, Oregon-based Notary Ceramics—the project of ceramicist Sarah Van Raden—ever since she exhibited at our Portland Market a few years back. Since then, her vessels and artful flower frogs have popped up everywhere, well beyond the Pacific Northwest. But becoming one of the country’s cult favorite ceramicists was not always the plan. Van Raden first took a pottery class in college, but didn’t go near a wheel again until a decade later, when she signed up for a class at a local art school. After that, she was hooked: she saved up for a kiln and…

L.A. Story: A Budget Kitchen Makeover, DIY Countertop Hack Included

Last week, we received an email from Jessica Bunge, senior market editor at Emily Henderson Design, that grabbed our attention. She had recently renovated the small kitchen in her 363-square-foot apartment in Los Angeles. Among her design inspirations? The kitchen of Sarah Lonsdale, one of Remodelista’s founding team members. Would we like to see her remodeled space, she wondered. One look at the before/after pictures, and it was clear that we needed to write about it. From the chic built-in breakfast nook to the simple plywood countertop, which covers the unattractive countertop underneath—an idea she got from Sarah’s own rental…

Green Tech and Rare Earth Elements

More aggressive recycling programs for discarded electronics would help recover the rare earth metals that allow them to operate. In contrast to the European Union, the U.S. has no laws that require manufacturers to accept these goods for recycling.

The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on climate change argued that we must cut global emissions in half by 2030 in order to meet the goal of keeping global warming to 1.5ºC as agreed to in Paris in 2015 at the Conference of the…
