One of my favorite stores in downtown Austin is Hacienda. Not only they have an amazing taste but they are also friendly and very easy to work with. I have been selling my pieces in Hacienda for almost a year now and we have a fantastic relationship. Their style is rustic, but yet modern and inspired in the classic ranch life, which I love. My Ceramic Ice pieces fit right in, with the ice cubes decorated with cowboy boots and horseshoes, or the wine stoppers and trivets showing designs motivated by the beauty of longhorns and the freedom of horses.
Something else that is so worth mentioning about Hacienda is their support of local artists. When I approached them last year, they embraced my style and were eager to work with me, creating an entire display in the store for my pieces. I immediately felt their appreciation for my work. And I, as a true ‘Austinite’ (I looked it up!), enjoy very much creating pieces that celebrate this wonderful city, with its music and unique architecture. And as a proud Texan I love decorating wine stoppers and ice cubes with the lone star flag. You can visit Hacienda at 204 Colorado St. Austin, and see all the exclusive gifts they showcase, including Ceramic Ice. We hope to see you soon!
