Maria Moyer is a sculptor who splits her time between Oakland, California and Manhattan, New York.
Much of her work is hand-formed, unglazed porcelain that she sands between firings to create a sea-shell-smooth finish. For her, the feel of the work is as important as its form. She prefers to reveal the natural skin of the clay and the remnants of human touch, rather than to cover the clay with glaze. Most of her work is nonfunctional, with the exception of a limited collection of porcelain-and-leather jewelry.

Imogene + Willie owners Carrie and Matt Eddmenson share a long and varied history in the fashion industry. Both began their careers at Sights Denim Systems in Henderson, Kentucky – once the world’s preeminent denim development laboratory. Carrie has worked in product development with numerous companies such as Paper Denim & Cloth, Earnest Sewn, Levi’s Vintage Clothing and Ralph Lauren’s RRL, just to name a few. She has worked with many companies to develop many modern day denim processes and finishes. Matt has helped develop products, fits, finishes, and branding for Earnest Sewn, Elie Tahari, Billy Reid, Rogan, and many others. Matt and Carrie have known each other since grade school, but reconnected while working at Sights Denim and married in 2006. In 2009, the Eddmensons moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where they operate Imogene + Willie’s showroom and flagship store out of a retrofitted 1950’s gas station.
