“The animal is in the world like water in water.” - Bataille

This is how George Bataille describes the immanence of animality in his book “Theory of Religion” To us, this way of being ever present in the world, always in the moment, is one that can often feel impossible.

In my work - both in the actual making of it as well as in the final objects themselves - I aim to refocus our attention on the present moment and to provide a daily point of access to what Soetsu Yanagi calls the “Kingdom of Beauty”: a world in which our everyday lives are imbued with beauty and meaning through the regular use of simple objects made with integrity in the Folk Art tradition.

For the lovers, for their children, for the animals, for the open but most of all - for my sweet Rilke Ochs Keenan.

All pieces are lovingly made by hand, by me, in Northern California.

Each item found at DECEMBER THIEVES is lovingly crafted.  We work with small artisans and independent designers who follow small batch manufacturing practices.  For them this means working solo with a handful of studio assistants or with small family run workspaces to bring to life their creations.

For us this means high quality unique products in very small quantities and a true dedication to the transformative power of a product made with passion.  Nothing is mass produced, nothing that can be reordered on a whim, and when it runs out, it runs out.

Important to note the items you find online are one and the same as those found in our brick and mortar locations- so snatch them up while you can!
