A student from Brown as part of the Public Policy Engagement Project interviewed us earlier this Spring to hear about our plans for our new home. Hear about our vision for the neighborhood here: Olneyville - A neighborhood in Transition An excerpt from the interview:"Jim Schatz and Peter Souza are the new kids on the block. A couple that just moved in January, they're the owners of a Wonder-Certified™ ceramic ware business at the edge of Olneyville.

J Schatz relocates to 46 Dike St. in Providence, RI

Feeling Lucky to be in Rhode Island. This past few months have been wonderful. We have successfully relocated our studio to a historic mill building at 46 Dike St. in Providence Rhode Island. Built in 1880, the building was the former dye house for the Weybosset Mills and is on the national register of historic places. The 5,000 sq. ft, one-and-one-half-story, sixteen-by-two-bay rectangular building has windows on both sides that allow natural light into the building throughout the day.

It is reminiscent of the original latex rubber color, hence the name Di Gomma, which is rubber in Italian.
