Our Story

Two creative women who love art and the moon.


Meet our



Adrienne Hodge & Lauren Tarbel.

 These ladies met in art school at UT about ten years ago one fateful day when they worked in the ceramics lab together on respective projects. Their paths crossed again nearly two years ago as neighbors and moms of small children, and they've been working and dreaming together ever since.

“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”
