Mission Arts and Crafts is the marriage of two of two similar aesthetics that emerged throughout the 1800s and is still popular today.

According to Wiki, "Mission furniture is a style of furniture that originated in the late 19th Century. It traces its origins to a chair made by A.J. Forbes around 1894 for San Francisco's Swedenborgian Church (San Francisco, California). The term mission furniture was first popularized by Joseph P. McHugh of New York, a furniture manufacturer and retailer who copied these chairs and offered a line of stylistically related furnishings by 1898. The word mission references the Spanish missions throughout colonial California, though the design of most Mission Style furniture owed little to the original furnishings of these missions. The style became increasingly popular following the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901. The style was popularly associated with the American Arts and Crafts movement."

New Mission Workshop explains, "Arts and Crafts style began in England, Australia, America and Canada between 1880 and 1910 as a backlash response to the industrial revolution of the time. It was instigated in the 1860s by artist/write William Morris, who created the “Morris Chair” we still have with us today. The backlash was by artisans fighting back against “soul-less” mass-produced items from large factories. Also, it was a backlash against lavish ornamentation of the Victorian age. They were in favor of the master craftsman, who created all the parts of an item and assembled and finished it, with help from apprentices. This is in contrast to manufacturing plants, whose goal it was to turn out the most pieces possible." Read more on their blog here

According to her website, "Hanna pushes the limits of the material, piercing her wheel thrown forms with careful attention to how the piece may alter under the high heat of the firing. Often her work will slump, acquiring an entirely organic movement that occurs only by nature." Just look at these incredible designs.

If you're looking for a new home accessory that stands out, make sure to stop by our store and check out the lovely ceramic work of Hanna Traynham! 

Legacy Modern supports local artists and you should too!
