The Westfield location opened on Friday, and serves as a compliment to the downtown flagship store, located at 40 State Circle. 

"We were looking to grow a little bit and reach more people," Ferwerea said.

The business, which was first established on Corn Hill Street in 1969, creates half of its own inventory and also sells products from about 70 different pottery studios.

Employees are planning a grand opening celebration for the new location, which is located directly across from , in the near future, Ferwerea said.

I happened to be at the Mall yesterday evening and was delighted to see the store had opened outside of Nordstrom's mall entrance. My husband and I had a great conversation with the employees and we will be shopping there for interesting and fun items for any upcoming occasion.
