Artists are invited to bring, three pieces of their work that represent their style, technique and expertise. These examples are not necessarily what the artists, if selected, will produce for the restaurant.

Artists should also bring a bio and artist statement.

Representatives of the restaurant will be present to share their vision, discuss the concept and make selections.

The selected artists will contract directly with the restaurant representative. All fees, designs, and deadlines will be determined between artist and restaurant. Once the price is agreed upon, Artists agree to pay a one-time only commission to LeMoyne of a 20% commission of the agreed upon total. Should reoccurring orders be placed by the restaurant with the artists, there is no further financial obligation due to LeMoyne.

Pieces that will be needed are:

  • Plates
  • Bowls, large and small
  • Cheese boards
  • Serving platters
  • Pitchers
  • and possibly drinkware.

Artists are encouraged to be creative in their designs, serving pieces should have a small footed base, artist choice.

Color palate suggestions are;

  • blues
  • greens
  • black
  • oyster white/grey


All pieces must be food safe;

  • Wood must be coated in Butcher Block Oil, no varnish or lacquers.
  • Raw edges are acceptable on the wooden serving pieces, it is expected that no two pieces of wood will be the same.
  • Pottery must be commercial grade.
  • Glazes can be Gloss and Matt.
  • No textural surfaces that will prevent proper sanitizing.
  • Pottery must be dishwasher, oven and microwave safe.
