Gladding McBean Struts Their Stuff at NYC’s Fashion Week

Ralph Lauren is a nice accessory
to Gladding McBean’s gorgeous pots



GMcB has been supplying pots to Ralph Lauren (RL) for a number of years. They use them in their stores across the world. We have shipped as far away as Dubai. A few months ago the people at RL contacted Gladding, McBean and got Sarah Bradshaw on the phone. She mans (or in this case womans) the Garden Pottery desk. When RL said they needed 17 pots in three short weeks for the upcoming Fashion Week in New York, (typical lead time is anywhere from six to 14 weeks), Sarah did not flinch!

Interstate Brick's Vincent Garduno: Respected, Proud, Humble and Now Retired

Vince Garduno
Vince and his crew: Cody Cherrington, Mark Young,
Dave Gunter, Vince Garduno, Shaun Cleverly,
Luis Mendoza, Jason Terrill and Glen Bergeson



Vince Garduno is retiring from Interstate Brick after 46 years as maintenance manager and his absence will be keenly felt by all the people who worked with Vince and those who Vince tutored these past years. Vince is a big man, a very humble man, a man of few words and a man loved and respected by everyone at Interstate Brick, especially his loyal and hardworking maintenance crew. I also will miss Vince. Of all the maintenance managers I’ve worked with in my travels around the world, I would rate him at the top of my list; he is a very capable maintenance manager. No matter how daunting a job might be, Vince would say, “Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered.”

Interstate Brick-West Jordan, UT: 468+ Years of Employment

The year was 1978. If you were mindful to music, you might have been listening to “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty. If you were into film, you may have seen the premiere of “Superman” starring Christopher Reeve. If you were applying for work at Interstate Brick Company (ISB), your name was either Dave Gunter, Marvin Morse, or Sonny Ward…

Please help me congratulate Dave, Marvin, and Sonny, all of whom, as of 2018, join the existing team of eight other employees of Interstate Brick Company that have 40+ years of service. This grand list of tenured professionals in their respective fields brings a combined total of 468 years of experience to Interstate Brick. I asked the members of this 11-person crew a few questions recently.
