Tiny house builder is using Kickstarter to fund her mobile pottery business

Jumping Creek Pottery Tiny House

Kaitlan Murphy is a carpenter and potter based in Revelstoke, BC, Canada. In 2014, she built a tiny house that features an eyebrow dormer and stained glass windows, and painted her company’s name, Jumping Creek Pottery, across its side. This little green home on wheels is Kaitlan’s mobile pottery boutique, where she sells her handmade cups, mugs, bowls, plates, and more. She creates pottery from her hands and her heart, with the goal of reconnecting people with the beauty of food preparation and enjoyment. Eating nourishing food from a hand-turned bowl, or sipping cider from a mug that warms the hands are gorgeous, sacred experiences that are often forgotten in our frenetic, throw-away society. With her current Kickstarter campaign, she’s aiming to raise $25,000 to invest in equipment and streamline her studio, so she can continue to create beauty that she can share with others.

New York City’s West Side may soon be getting a massive floating hotel if the folks behind the much-anticipated SuperPier anti-mall have their way. Youngwoo & Associates, the developers of the shipping container megaproject, have hatched a plan with RXR Realty to transform a decommissioned cruise ship into Manhattan’s first permanent hotel at sea. The team was inspired by the Anheuser-Busch “Bud Light” hotel that took over a Norwegian Cruise Line ship during Superbowl XLVIII.

Hey gardeners! Consider planting an extra row for the hungry this year

Gardening, garden for the hungry, plant a row, grow a row, growing food, growing extra

Although it may be known by many different names, the “Grow a Row” program is one that’s gaining popularity all over the world. The concept is pretty self-explanatory, and can make an enormous difference in another person’s life: as you plan this year’s garden, just aim to plant one extra row of whatever you’d normally cultivate—like tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, beans—for an organization that helps the hungry.
