meet the maker
OATMEAL began from a meeting between friends to eat oatmeal and talk about making things.
our objects are designed and made with care in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. they are inspired by simple things and everyday life, made within a narrow, often neutral, color palette and are very important to us. we use clay and metal and other simple materials to make objects and wearables ethically and with respect for the material and the people we are making for. we hope you like what we like.
elise birnbaum is a maker, skill collector, coveter of interesting objects and founder of OATMEAL.
she can be reached at email@example.com and would love to hear from you.
