Since London Design Week last year, beautifully crafted ceramics have barely been off my radar, there seems to be a real vogue for beautiful handcrafted artisan pieces at the moment and I can’t get enough of them. I have a post in draft at present on kitchen updates for little investment and this is certainly one very pleasing way to do it – a well placed beautiful ceramic in the kitchen can detract from a multitude of sins! As I seem to have been pinning and saving ceramics for most of 2016, today I’m sharing my favourites from around the world. From the painterly to the abstract via the gold leafed and pastel here are all my favourite pretties for your perusal. Enjoy!
From top left to right on each line:
1. These mugs are from one of my favourite online discoveries of the past year, Scandi imported design from Att Pynta, I have bought quite a few lovely pieces from these guys and I adore these espresso mugs, £16 here 2. Everything from Suite One studio is crazy lovely and entirely covetable, this is a selection from their 2015 range. They are American but happily collaborated with Anthropologie at the start of summer this year, UK stores sold out fast but I’m crossing fingers they restock soon as I feel I need these in my life. Check out Suite One here and the Anthropologie collab’ here 3. Beautiful abstract and gold leaf ceramic mugs from Romy Northover, they are no longer available but you can check out her work here 4. A collaboration with an American boutique I’m a big fan of – Leif shop by Ben Fiess, these tea bowls retail at $34 and should be restocking soon, they are beautiful, I’m rather fond of the sky blue colour way, take a look here 5. I love the simplicity of these, there are quite a few ceramics on the market at the moment with raw materials offset by a geometric flash of colour, I love the understated rustic beauty of these by Arrow & Sage which you can view here 6. I saw, I bought, I received, I utterly loved! These are produced by a very talented lady who runs an Etsy shop called Red Raven Studios, I have this plate and an espresso mug, they are utterly beautiful, her sense of colour and the gold leaf detailing make these items absolute favourite purchases of mine and both are out on display in the house. Get the plate for £43 here 7. I only came across these recently on Instagram, they are made by an east London ceramicist called Limehouse Ceramics, all the designs are lovely but I particularly love these Very Freckly Espresso cups, £10 here 8. Cream dipped in blush pink and vice versa, what’s not to love about these ice cream coloured cups? They are made by Studio Arhoj, €20 each here, just oh so pretty 9. Now hold your breath for the price of this beautiful milk & sugar set by Scholten & Baijings, it’s £190 from Smug, but isn’t it just stunning? Have a peep here 10. And back down to earth with a much more accessible price is this bowl from Workshop Living in Brighton (who also stock a great range of wooden baby toys) this Japanese inspired earthenware bowl will set you back £12 here.
