Earlier this year, Minnesota photographer and ceramist Louisa Podlich launched e-commerce site A Mano ("by hand" in Spanish) as a way to present handcrafted, limited-edition products by artisans all over the world under her carefully curated eye. It includes hand-painted, all-seeing-eye ceramics by Demetria Chappo (Brooklyn, NY); gold-embellished ceramic jewelry and vessels by Elizabeth Pechacek (Hastings, MN); marbled silk scarves by Jamie Bertsch (Milwaukee, WI); nature-inspired pottery and ceramics by Libby Armstrong (Tallahassee, FL); modern twists on terra cotta pottery and ceramics by the Object Enthusiast (Omaha, NE); and colorful, quirky porcelain pottery by the Wide Prospect (Brooklyn, NY), plus Podlich’s own brand, also called A Mano.

Tonight, Podlich bids her studio at the Thorp Building in Northeast Minneapolis adios with a moving sale to reduce the shop’s inventory, including leftover treasures from past collections and the current summer collection, which will be marked 20 to 40 percent off. There will also be a table of Podlich’s own pottery “orphans” that never made it onto the site at “extremely reduced prices.” Out of towners can take advantage of a 20-percent online discount on both A Mano’s Etsy site and the store’s e-shop today only (12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.) with the checkout code “MOVINGSALE.”

A Mano will be moving into the Northrup King Building in October; stay tuned for a grand opening party to come.

5-9 p.m. Tues., Aug. 12. Thorp Building, 1618 Central Ave. NE., Suite 218, Mpls. Note: Central Avenue is closed at 14th Avenue; street and lot parking is available. weshopamano.com & etsy.com/shop/weshopamano
