Lori Theriault is potter and owner of Crazy Green Studios in Asheville, NC where she and her team make service and table wares and accessories for home and professional kitchens. Lori's love of cooking spurred her love of making pots, and even better, she loves to see her pottery in the hands of passionate, creative, and talented food professionals. All work is handmade with high fire stoneware or porcelain and with food-safe glazes, and each piece, whether made on the wheel or by hand with slabs, carries the individual, handmade design of the collaboration between potter and chef. Clients include Curate Tapas Bar, Chestnut, Jargon, Rustic Grape Wine Bar, and French Broad Chocolates in Asheville, Tandem Restaurant in Carrboro, NC, and Piccalilli, opening this fall in Culver City, CA.
Over 20 immersive signature events are featured throughout the weekend! Tours, dinners, parties, foraging and more await.
This inspired, friendly and free-spirited food scene tucked in the mountains of Appalachia has been called “Foodtopia,” but the locals just call it home. Plan your trip now.
Access to affordable and healthy food and reducing food waste are important initiatives of the signature event’s charitable giving goals.
