BIG IDEA
Get acquainted with locavore clay as Northwest ceramicist Betty Feves receives a retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. Feves exactingly sourced her materials, digging up very specific, distinctive hunks of Oregon dirt—from Deadman’s Pass, say, or a particular remote road between Ukiah and Sumpter. You could say this show takes the concept of terroir to a deeper level. mocc.pnca.edu

KILLER COMBO
It’s one thing to use Jacobsen sea salt (facebook.com/JacobsenSaltCo), harvested from places like Netarts Bay and distilled in Portland. But to rack up serious PDX points, serve Jacobsen’s in glass salt bowls from Vitreluxe (vitreluxe.com), a Portland workshop just tabbed for a Wallpaper design award.

WORKSHOP
Avery Thatcher’s original wallpaper inspiration came on trips to South Africa and Indonesia. “People papered every inch of their walls with colorful stuff,” the 34-year-old Portlander says. Her Juju Papers stay true to that spirit with bold, graphic prints, which designers (and civilians) prefer for accent walls. jujupapers.com
