Notes from the Importer:  Heliotropes California Red came into existence out of a hope to bring together queer makers in support of one another. We were approached by our friends at Sacred Thirst Selections, asking if we would be interested in creating a wine, pairing up with a queer artist to design the label, and then donating a portion of the proceeds from said wine to a charitable cause.

The Cause A portion of the proceeds from this wine will be donated to The People's Pottery Project. Their mission is to employ and empower formerly incarcerated women, trans and non-binary individuals through paid job training, access to a healing community, and meaningful employment in their collective non-profit ceramic business.

The Artist The artwork for this label comes from the incredible artist Lia Halloran. Halloran’s work often uses concepts in science as a bounding point for her work, exploring how perception, time, and scale informs the human desire to understand the world and our emotional and psychological place within it. Halloran has participated in several interdisciplinary projects with a variety of collaborators to curate exhibitions, write on art and science intersections and experiment with new media technologies. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, ArtNews, and New York Magazine among others. Lia lives and works in Los Angeles and currently serves as Assistant Professor of Art and Director of Painting and Drawing at Chapman University where she also teaches courses that explore how creativity and problem solving can be the point of intersection for art and science.
