Kaenon (pronounced: KAY-nun) emerged in 2001 from an intense passion and a clear desire to never compromise. Kaenon was founded by two brothers who were unsatisfied with the sunglasses available on the market. Determined to create something better, they developed the proprietary polarized SR-91® lens — the world’s first non-compromising polarized lens. Wrapped in unique, California-designed frame styles built for comfort and performance, along with distinct colorways and hand-painted treatments unique to Italian craftsmen, Kaenon sunglasses became more than a reality, they raised the standard in performance eyewear.

JJ Potts started in 1999 with a few make shift tools from the kitchen, some clay and a lot of patience. With just a few high school pottery classes under their belts, they setup our first pottery shop in the family garage and began making and selling Shroomyz ceramic garden mushrooms. The first shop was quite rudimentary to say the least, plaster from the hardware store, super soaker squirt guns and chicken wire were just a few of the makeshift tools they used to make the first Shroomyz. If anyone remembers those very first Shroomyz off the press they truly were “one of a kind.” Demand for the Shroomyz grew quickly and their college friends were soon recruited to help out in the JJ Potts studio. Since then most of the original crew has moved on and got “real” jobs but, many of the current employees are still college students working their way through school. Since leaving the garage, the factory has grown and more equipment has been added to the operation but the original electric kiln given to us by their father to start the operation is still in use today. The production has evolved quite a bit over the years and they have a few more Shroomyz under our belts, but their passion for creating unique and lasting ceramic garden art lives on. Made in the USA.
