Soft Words

Poetry doesn't come to life on the pages of a book on the shelf. Designer and poet Noelle VanHendrick believes poetry is meant to be lived with, curled up with, shared, and tucked into the comfortable corners of life to delight you each time you find it. That vision she and her husband and collaborator Eric Hendrick have realized in these celebratory pillows.

Noelle's poems spiral around each cushion in a spontaneous, writerly typeface with folk art illustrations. One is an ode to love, and the other a celebration of home, and the author will personalize them for you by hand writing your choice of names and year in the center in same, playful script. Individually or together, the pillows are a joyful decorative accessory that warms your heart as it cushions your body. They also pair beautifully with the couple's poetic ceramics, the Home Platter and the Union Platter. Made in Vermont.

Check out Noelle's Home and Union Platters.

Noelle VanHendrick and Eric Hendrick are a husband and wife team who have been creating together since the year 2000. They met in pottery class at West Virginia University and where good friends for a good while. They courted candling wood kilns and playing chess. Now, from their home in southern Vermont, they make it all happen. They homeschool their three sons and create art for the world to enjoy. “It is poetic, I have raised my sons on buckets of love and cups of beautiful…”, says Noelle. “ I intend for it all only to get better and better….” There is an underlying mission to the work. A mission of cultivating world peace beginning at home, in the body, mind, and spirit. Eric and Noelle create and design goods that align with this mission.
