Sin – Uni Candlestick – Handmade Stoneware – Terracotta
Virginia Sin, the woman behind SIN, is a Brooklyn-based multi-disciplinary designer. In 2006, she left LA for Brooklyn, abandoning, “way better tacos” in the name of making a name for herself. With her collections of overalls, small rocks and medium-sized succulents in tow, she set up a studio in Greenpoint and developed her first line: The Gluttony Collection.
Working to continually broaden her design horizons, Virginia has focused her recent attention on redefining ceramic coils, translating her graphic designs into weave structures and challenging the limitations of clay in the lighting industry, in hopes to bring some extra warmth into the world.
“Home is where you do whatever you want. That’s why we do whatever we want: meticulously hand-building, crafting and weaving American-made home goods that make you feel good.”
“We don’t make things. We make comfort. We make reasons to go home. Things you can wrap up in. Things made slow. With two bare hands. Things worth sharing. Or hoarding. Depending on your prerogative. Things that help you find home, wherever you are.”
