Vendor Profile: Krystal Speck.

Who are you...you, as a person?
I am stubborn lady who loves making beautiful ceramics.

What is your business called?
Just me, Krystal Speck.

What does this business specialize in?
Handmade porcelain tableware & art objects. I also like to create special projects for folks, like custom porcelain installation art and commissioned works.

Where are you located (home, studio, store front)?
I feel like I've hit the jackpot, having recently moved in to a beautiful space in the Wallace Studios building. Many artists and designers are located here, and I have four wonderful studio-mates that I share the studio with. I'm always around other people making art, which helps keep me inspired.

Do you have any new products/inventions/designs/projects up for grabs at the Love & Rummage Trunk Show?
Yes! I have brand new porcelain, footed bowls that will debut at the show...calm white on the outside with vibrant floral interiors. I will also be bringing along lots of graphic coffee cups & tumblers, my big vases, and I also have some porcelain medallions with subtle, carved inscriptions like, "a great love." Romance. It's in the air, kids.

What is one thing from your trunk that would make a great Valentine?
One of my pretty porcelain tumblers filled full of valentines treats would make a lovely gift. For the frugal shopper, my porcelain medallions might be just the thing.

What would be your ideal Valentine to receive?
A brunch date with my sweetheart involving pancakes, a double americano and flowers from Coriander Girl (maybe he's reading this?).

How do you feel about February in Toronto - drab or dazzling?
You can make it dazzle, just get fancy sometimes (even when it's minus 20).

Do you believe in true love?
Yes, you gotta.
