RACHEL’S PICK: HANGING MACRAME PLANTERS BY CAMPFIRE STUDIO & MEREDITH BROCKINGTON
We were introduced to these amazing local artists by a personal connection. They came in for a meeting and brought in just a single sample, the first of their spring line, to give us a feel for their work. And that’s all they needed because let me tell you, when I first saw that Macrame Hanging Planter it was love at first sight. I just knew we had to sell their hand crafted work here at Home Remedies. The perfect blend of textures, these wall hangings will add that right amount of somethin’ to any space. And yes, I know what you’re thinking… it always comes back around. And with these artists, it’s only getting better.

As owner & Proprietor of Home Remedies, I guess you could say I’m the captain of this ship. After years of traveling out of state for a good selection of fabrics, I opened Home Remedies in April 2010. We’ve evolved quite a bit since then, and I’m so glad you’re sailing along on this journey with us!
A FORMAL INTRODUCTION: CAMPFIRE STUDIO & MACRAME BY MEREDITH BROCKINGTON
A little bit about Campfire Studio from Kristen Camp…
Porcelain is our primary medium, because we love the smoothness of the clay and its intense white coloring. We bring in color by recycling our scraps of clay and hand dying it in batches to create natural grays and other neutrals. Marbling is done by mixing the colored clay with the pure white clay during the throwing process. We love that with marbling every piece is completely unique!
A little bit about Meredith Brockington…
Meredith is an art director, photographer and macramé artist based in Portland, Maine. Since receiving her B.F.A. in Advertising Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology, she has worked as a full-time art director for the iconic American heritage brand L.L.Bean. When she’s not on set, Meredith can be found off-grid adventuring, traveling with her Hasselblad, sipping iced coffee with friends, hosting dinner gatherings, or jamming to live music.
