Adorable Animal Planters Will Be Best Buds with Your Flower Buds

Studio Giverny animal planters

Yoshiko Kozawa of Studio Giverny creates lovable animal planters that’ll be your (flower) buds’ best bud. Whales, giraffes, and alpaca all carry the weight of these plants on their back. But don’t worry—they’re happy to do it—and in turn, brighten your home.

Yoshiko first crafts her pieces from porcelain and then coats them in a shino glaze combination. Some, like the alpaca, include a fun pompom tail and tassel earrings. See her entire selection on Etsy. (h/t: So Super Awesome)

Intricate Patterned Line Drawings are Actually Gorgeous Ceramic Pottery

Suzanne Sullivan ceramics

Ceramicist Suzanne Sullivan produces pottery with intricate surface decoration that creates an awesome illusion. When viewed from a certain angle, the objects look like 2D ink drawings. They’ve got bold, flattened designs reminiscent of a sketchbook, with a consistency in line weight that often remains unchanged across the surface—because of this, our eye is fooled.

Ceramic Animal Planters are Sweet Companions to Your Favorite Flora

Design Forest ceramics

Design Forest ceramics

I have a well-documented love of face planters on Brown Paper Bag. My years-long admiration is because of the playful nature they inherently contain. These delightful objects dress up your plants while creating wild, ever-changing hairstyles for the stoneware characters.

Design Forest is inspired by animals—bunnies, cats, elephants, and more— and pares them down to essential, simple shapes that are minimal in decoration yet convey sweet personalities. Just look at their smiles!

Design Forest sells their entire pastel-colored collection through their online shop.

Delightful Ceramics to “Keep Company” in Your Home

Keep Company

If you’ve read this blog for months (or even years), you know how fond I am of Jen Collins and her illustrations. Since 2013, she’s applied her delightful paintings onto ceramics, and the application of tigers, swans, and cats lights up any piece of stoneware.

Keep Company is a collaboration between Jen and ceramicist Shaya Stevenson. Each piece is wheelthrown by Shaya and then glazed by Jen. As a result, the forms of beautifully crafted with surface decoration that has a carefree gestural quality to them.

Keep Company just updated their shop. Many of these pieces are gone, but there are still some up for grabs—check it out now!

Illustrative Ceramics Tell the Charming Stories of Everyday People

Ceramics by Polly Fern

Illustrator, ceramicist, and canary keeper Polly Fern follows in the long historical tradition of adorning clay with pictures. Her colorful vases, plates and bowls feature everyday scenes: a table set with a long baguette; men and women digging holes among the trees; and people riding on horses. They tell short stories—perhaps of not the most glamorous lives, but ones that are filled with people, pets, and good food. It all sounds lovely to me!

Polly sells her ceramics through her online shop.

Ceramic Animals Add Some Welcome Color to Everyday Decor

Ceramics by Dodo Toucan

Of all my favorite things to collect, ceramics are it. Charming in nearly any size, I have many—including animals, people, and ghosts(!)—scattered throughout my home. And after seeing the shop Dodo Toucan, it’s time I add to my hoard of porcelain. Created by Sarah Theron, her colorful creature masks and totems are intended to brighten your everyday decor. Some will sit on your kitchen table while others attach to your wall—whatever the use, their elegant forms and electric hues are a visual delight.

Dodo Toucan is produced in Paris, but has an online shop that ships worldwide.

Forget Face Planters: Haired Jars are Just the Vessels You’re Looking For

Laura Bird haired jar

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ll know I have a deep love of face pots. Well, they now have a worthy opponent: haired jars. This delightfully strange classification describes the work of ceramist Laura Bird, who crafts heads sporting stylish hairdos that you then lift to reveal what’s inside. The interiors are glazed with a shiny, clear finish so they’re able to hold liquids. What a fantastic addition these would be to your bar.

Laura sells a variety of ceramics in her Etsy shop, including vases, plates, and small sculptures.

Accessorize Your Summer with Sunny Ceramic Jewelry

Bea Bellingham

Recently, I shared something off my summer wish list: shirts and tanks by Doops Design. If you didn’t see them, I suggest you check ’em out—they’re fashionable with charming cacti-themed illustrations.

You know what would look great with one of their tank tops? These ceramic accessories by Bea Bellingham! They have the same sort of warm-weather appeal with repeat-patterns of bananas, chili peppers, palm trees, and more. They’re statement pieces without being too loud, making them great for a special outdoor gathering or a Tuesday at the office.

Bea sells her jewelry, planters, and tiny pots on Etsy.
