I am obsessed with ceramics. I am not honestly sure when or why the obsession started, but I love the mix of aesthetics and functionality that pottery encompasses. Ceramics can add instant personality to a space, elevating it to the next level. Ceramics serve as both centerpieces and secondary accessories great for creating a layered look or adding a sculptural element. Since I spend quite a bit of time just researching ceramics and looking up the work of different ceramists (more than I would like to admit), I decided to put my extensive research to use and pull together a round-up of some of my favorite ceramic pieces that I would buy right now if Amber had not prohibited my ceramic purchasing for the foreseeable future. Trying to list a mix of work for all you ceramic/design lovers out there, some of the pieces are fairly affordable while others are more aspirational or splurges.
Miro Made This: I consistently love Miro’s work, and this bowl is no exception. The rich, cerulean glaze on the inside has just the right element of surprise.
Tortus Copenhagen: I love all of his work and have one of his vases in a blue glaze. Watching his process on Instagram is also amazing. Right now, I am loving the shape and movement in the color of this vase.
Frances Palmer: Though Frances’s work feels like a splurge, I love the way her roots in art history come out in her classical ceramic pieces while managing to maintain a fresh, modern look. I particularly love her Sabine Pot.
Luke Eastop: I find Luke’s work, particularly his Crucible pieces, to be so visually pleasing. There is something about the proportions of his work that really stand out. This crucible in pale turquoise is my current favorite.
Jill Rosenwald: I have loved Jill’s work for so long and visit her site several times a month to check up on any new work. This tray lives up to all of my expectations for a piece created by Jill.
Avesha Michael: Amber not only makes fun of me for ceramic obsession, but also for my love of all things miniature, both things that clearly draw me to this tiny spoon.
Notary Ceramics: This would be perfect to display flowers from our yard.
NotonKeramik: This mug has is so beautiful. I love that it still feels sophisticated even with all of the different blues.
Lyngby Porcelain: I have wanted this vase for so long. Maybe it is in my future this Christmas.
Mazama Wares: We own these coffee mugs already and they are absolutely amazing.
