Owlkill Studio is owned and operated by Adelia Sugarman. It’s primarily a one-woman venture, though Adelia collaborates with her mother on some woodworking and sewing projects. The name comes from the Owlkill River, which runs through the woods behind Adelia’s parents’ property in rural upstate NY where she grew up.
Adelia believes strongly in local sustainability and supporting small businesses. As much as possible, she finds locally sourced, vintage or discarded materials to use in creating our wares. Each item is thoughtfully and carefully sourced and crafted one by one in her studio in upstate NY.
Owlkill Studio’s simple utilitarian design aesthetic attracts a lot of fans. We love these leather and brass key fobs, especially because they’re designed to stand the test of time!
Adelia is constantly inspired by the materials she finds; their cutting boards and marble + wood cheese boards are made entirely from salvaged and reclaimed materials, and each piece of jewelry features a vintage element as the main component of the piece. Adelia loves the fact that these materials lived another life before being re-appropriated into something new. We couldn’t agree more!
The Owlkill Studio space is in the corner of a big old industrial building that’s been home to many different production processes over the years. With a lot of renovation and careful design, Adelia has turned her studio into a beautiful space. Such wonderful natural light and perfect studio plants!
We can’t wait to see more of Owlkill’s latest collection of products at our Brooklyn Summer Market this upcoming weekend! Be sure to visit the Owlkill Studio website as well as shop their products on Etsy. You can also stay up to date with Adelia on Facebook and Instagram. See you all soon!
