I am very excited to be working with Eefje Theeuws of Studio Materia on a series of new plates for Sierra Mar. We have been carrying Eefje's plates at our Post Ranch Mercantile, but this will be the first time we have collaborated on a unique series inspired by Post Ranch and Sierra Mar. Last week Eefje had an opportunity to have lunch at Sierra Mar and spent some time exploring the property. Her first inspiration was drawn from the grove of giant sequoias below the North Ridge. She hopes to capture the essence of these incredible trees in a design that will complement our Taste of Big Sur menu.
"Born in Antwerp, Belgium, Eefje Theeuws was trained in Architecture in San Francisco and Energy Medicine in Joshua Tree. Infinitely inspired by Nature's elegance and the simplicity of elemental form, Eefje's work infuses design with healing energies and spiritual essence. She worked with acclaimed architecture, interiors and landscape firms before starting her own practice "STUDIO MATERIA".
From the samples I have seen this is going to be an incredible collaboration! We hope to have the first series of plates in use by early May.
