CRAVT Pop-Up. Soot Studios.

Sunday, March 21, 2021

CRAVT Pop-Up is hosted at Ritualcravt, to bring exposure and attention to artists and craftspeople.  These Pop-Ups will showcase an individual maker in our storefront with their products, goods, art, and jewelry for a one day event! We will house local and non-local artists monthly. 🙂
Come by anytime March 21, 2021, 12-6pm to meet the maker/s who will have a generous selection of their work available for purchase. No tickets necessary.

This Pop-Up will be featuring Soot Studios {@soot.studios on ig}!

“My name is Lewis Vernal Aire (they/them) and I would like to welcome you to the cumulative home of my creative work. I believe that the cultural standard for makers at the moment is based around the idea of being focused on one form of making. But, I make many things. I am a potter, a poet, a hairdresser, a photographer, a cook, and those ideas are not separate: they are intertwined, and they are all a part of me and they all influence my process as a craftsman.

I created Soot Studios to collect all of these crafts in one cohesive place in which all of these facets of myself are represented. At one point, I had multiple places I was holding each thing that I do, one for hair, one for pottery, one for poetry, and so on. In splitting these I felt as though I was splitting myself, so I made the decision to combine all of them.

I love to make, to create. Making is a part of who I am, for I am not the goods themselves, I am the culmination of knowledge, learning and process. I am not a potter or a poet, I am both at the same time all the time and it is important to me that I exist as authentically to you as I do to myself.”
