There aren’t many (or probably any) farmhouses in San Francisco. But designer Lisa Neimeth’s house was once a dairy farm, and she has converted a chicken coop out back into a ceramics studio where she makes plates out of dark, rich California clay. Nearby Alemany Farm, where Neimeth volunteers, is also influential: “There’s an old silo I’ve incorporated into a lot of my pieces, and my color palette reflects the land.”
