After launching and growing The Handmade Showroom
(est. 2015), founder Marlo Miyashiro had visions of creating a new gallery-style shopping experience with a distinctively curated collection of fine wearable art and beautiful, functional housewares created by independent artists from all over the US and all over the world.
The original plan was to add this concept to our main store at The Handmade Showroom, but after a move to a much smaller space in early 2019*, the idea was shelved with the hopes that we would eventually find a larger space that could house both concepts comfortably.
As fate would have it, the space next door to the Showroom became available that same summer and we jumped at the chance to turn our idea into reality!

The space, a former Teavana store, was ready for an update! After 3 months of hard work to update the space and curating our inaugural collection of artists, we opened for business on September 1, 2019!

We had a fabulous Grand Opening party on September 15, 2019 where Marlo M. spoke from the heart to a room full of our artists and favorite customers while our amazing helpers modeled some of the jewelry designs from our inaugural collection.
We are quite proud of all that we have accomplished to bring this new project to life and look forward to helping you find your newest favorite things at Bezel & Kiln!
*In August 2020, The Handmade Showroom moved to our largest space to date on the 3rd floor of the newly renovated Pacific Place! More info on The Handmade Showroom website
