02 SONDER CERAMICS, 06/24SONDER is the dinnerware and homegoods brand created by Emma Noel, established in 2024 after uncovering her passion for ceramics through a 12-week wheel course in Hell’s Kitchen. After learning the in’s and out’s of the wheel, ceramics became an immediate third space for Emma to release creatively and disassociate with the ever-present screen. Upon building basic skills, Emma began renting a studio space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where the idea for SONDER was born. Since moving into the space in Greenpoint, Emma has been working hard to establish not only an identity for SONDER, but to build inventory and interest in her first collection, Collection 01, which is due to launch in the Summer of 2024 via Instagram and a virtual web shop.

SONDER is in it’s seedling stages. Emma has grand plans for the brand to grow, evolve, and encompass even more realms of the design and creative spaces. Collaborations, future collections, events, and more are already in the works.
