There's a lot of hype around today's Total Solar Eclipse - with good reason! 🌚🌝
We couldn't help but join in and curated a few pieces that are perfect for today's festivities. Tap the image for the artists!

As we prep for the cabin photo shoot this weekend, can't help but reflect how far #thecabinthatkotbuilt has come. Less than a year ago this exterior tar paper phase was our reality for what seemed like forever. Now intern @sarahrachelbrown is on site ready to share her space with you, virtually that is. We stand on the shoulders of giants here at KōT, feeling so fortunate to represent every one of you; some of the countries finest contemporary makers!
Some photo sessions end with a treat. Of course it helps that we have the best ice cream parlor right next door that has the most decadent flavors, thanks @mortons_moo for the photo shoot help! 😉. Ice cream bowls by @tylergulden is both functional and full of surface variation detail. check out our listing (link in profile) for more process and product detail.
Just one more post to gush about our guest artist, Rachel Sherman (@malaguetahandmade).
Rachel launched Malagueta in 2002. Her label is based on improvised surface techniques such as appliqué, couching, shirting, top-stitching, ruching, embroidery, piecing, and pin-tucking.

This #cabinthatkotbuilt project is finally coming together. In preparation for our cabin photo shoot this month, we stopped at the packie to pick up some Maine distilled goodness from @bartlettedistillery Our minds are racing with ideas of how to stage this set with all our favorite handcrafted items from Maine and beyond. We are honored to represent so many amazing artists and super blessed to have the opportunity to see projects like this through. Nothing on this planet like August in Maine, hope you all are enjoying it to the fullest!
So, for those of you "folks from away" here's a little peek inside our shop. We usually don't find ourselves here at this hour but it's August; burning the midnight oil! 💼🌜🔨
