Functional art

Looking for something to give to the person who has everything? There’s little chance they’ve got a handmade, elk antler-handled pizza cutter. Although the pizza cutters are made in Georgia, the elk antlers are from Jackson Hole: The makers come out to the Jackson District Boy Scouts of America Elk Antler Auction every year. Each pizza cutter is unique. Mountain Dandy also carries elk antler bottle openers by the same artisan. $120, available at Mountain Dandy, 125 N. Cache St., 307/690-0606, mountaindandy.com

One(s) of a kind

The idea is that every Alex Marshall plate, bowl, tumbler, mug, and creamer be different. And, it’s not just Marshall’s forms that subtly vary, but also the patterns in her glazes. Mountain Dandy carries much of Marshall’s line of Classic Place Settings in a range of neutral colors, and has samples of more than twenty different colors you can use to order a custom set. Dinner plates from $49, available at Mountain Dandy, 125 N. Cache St., 307/690-0606, mountaindandy.com

Central asian style

As we write this, the mother-and-daughter team behind Page & Company (Lizzie Page Watson, daughter, and mom Anne Page Watson) are off in Kyrgyzstan shopping for traditional felt pillowcases and area rugs (shyrdaks in Kyrgyz) so you don’t have to. Not that these colorful, patterned, 100 percent wool pillow coverings and rugs aren’t worth flying halfway around the world for. From $85, available at Penny Lane Cooperative, 307/264-2388, 185 Scott Lane, pageandcompanycollection.com

beautifully indestructible

Pam Barlow makes each Copperdot leather bag to “outlive you,” she says. “I couldn’t find a bag that could live up to my lifestyle. I’m tough on things,” says the lifelong horsewoman. Barlow saw a scrap of chap leather at Flat Creek Saddle Shop, the perfect size for two satchels. Every Copperdot bag pairs supple leather with solid brass or stainless steel hardware, interior cow hair pockets, and straps that “have the same conditioning and feel as my good bridles,” says Barlow, who still makes each bag by hand. From $420, 307/690-4564, copperdotleather.com

take note

We’re thankful that textile designer Alexa Pulitzer—who has worked on designs and silk printing for brands from Prada to Ferragamo—turned her attention to stationery full time in 2004. Pulitzer is 100 percent New Orleans (she was born and raised there), but her quirky and elegant designs, which often feature animals, are 100 percent Jackson Hole. For example: Her Hornabet line takes the letters of the alphabet and renders them in a font that looks like horns. Paper & Grace carries the entire Hornabet line of monogrammed notepads. $17, available at Paper & Grace, 55 N. Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

animals in the kitchen

Bird & Buffalo, the quirky and creative brand established by local Courtney Leavell, makes dish towels with prints of Jackson Hole wildlife. Right now, we’re loving her bison and bear designs, but every time we pop into Penny Lane Cooperative, which also sells Leavell’s block-printed cards, gift bags, and T-shirts, we find a new favorite. $22, available at Penny Lane Cooperative, 185 Scott Lane, 307/699-0769, birdandbuffalo.com

Of course you’re going to get something interesting when an Army veteran and a ski instructor team up to design clothing. Friends Spencer Hirst (the ski instructor) and veteran Ben Agee’s Western Range Clothing makes pearl snap button-down shirts for men and women, and bow ties and neckties with an antler pattern on them. For spring and summer, it’s hard to go wrong with their Antler Logo hat. From $26, available at Penny Lane Cooperative, 185 Scott Lane, 307/264-1890, westernrangeclothing.com
