We are Pigeon Toe
Pigeon Toeʼs aspiration is simple: to provide mankind with everyday beauty. Highly curated and refined, each piece is culled from skilled hands, trained minds and inspired hearts. Founded in 2009, our studio exists in the heart of charming Industrial North Portland. Featuring artisan objects that transcend trends, each piece is an attempt to redefine a new age of homegrown, grassroots aesthetics.
Our designs are naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully charming.
Each piece is treasured. Beautiful. Authentically hand-crafted.
Each object emanates enduring value.
The result? Heirlooms that are hardly old-fashioned. Objects that appear discovered, rather than acquired. Objects with a vision, a purpose. A heritage.
Objects with a story.
Owner & Designer,
After learning how to throw in fourth grade, designer Lisa Jones spent a lifetime avoiding pottery. From graphic design to marketing to video installation, Jones steered clear from life in craft until her longing to work with her hands took her full-circle, back to her days as a 9-year-old ceramicist.
With an aversion to fast-paced and mass-produced goods, Lisa formed Pigeon Toe with a vision to design uniquely beautiful objects that incorporate a touch of history in every piece. The sort of history that can be valued, but not bought. Treasured, but not replicated.
Now in Pigeon Toeʼs fifth year of existence, Lisa introduces a new collection twice per year, collaborating with other local makers to round out her ceramic designs. With a focus on craft, handmade and homespun goods, each Pigeon Toe piece represents a story woven with rich heritage.
Pigeon Toe is a creative evolution. Much like each design developed in Portland, Lisa has lovingly curated a sustainable, aware collection harking back to an era where artisans not only create, but inspire.
