How a Ceramist Transformed a Los Angeles Treehouse. September 2019.
Here an excerpt:
A rickety bridge with bungee-cord cables is the only way to access the ceramist @RainaJLee's #treehouse, a 68-square-foot fir-clad structure shrouded by a Brazilian pepper tree at the base of Los Angeles’s Mount Washington. When Lee bought her home in 2013, the space was, she said, “just a place to come and read.” Then in early 2018, her partner, Mark Watanabe, an architect, lined one wall of the treehouse with plywood shelves supported by salvaged pine branches and installed a tea table of his own design in the center of the space. Suddenly, Lee had a showroom, and though her ceramics are now sold at boutiques including Seattle’s Totokaelo, New York’s Michele Varian and Los Angeles’s Poketo, she’s lately been hosting impromptu sales in her treehouse.
