What makes it a Rhody Gem?

While you may have spotted these colorful wares at Terrain (part of the Anthropologie family), they originate right on Wickenden. Owner and studio potter Dwo Wen Chen’s stoneware plates and bowls are so intricately designed with organic etchings of birds, ferns, and vibrant flowers, you might not want to eat off of them – but you totally can because they’re as sturdy and utilitarian as they are beautiful. With fine ceramics displayed around the perimeter of the shop, Three Wheel Studio doubles as a workspace where Chen creates most of the merchandise, but other artists’ pottery, glass, and jewelry also add variety to the diverse collection. Their e-commerce shop makes it easy to shop online and pick up in-store, but patrons explain that the best part of visiting is learning about the individual pieces and their makers. Whether you’re looking for a dynamic table setting or novelty mugs and jars, Three Wheel Studio will have a colorful piece to fit the bill.
