Dripping” Face Planters and Pots Look Like They’re Melting from Within

Drip planter by Kinska

Drips are in. Sweet, sticky drip cakes are one of Pinterest’s 2017 wed­ding trends, and the same goes for ceram­ics. The lat­est drip pots by the Lon­don-based Kin­ska use her sig­na­ture min­i­mal­ist palet­te and tiny faces that are over­run by drib­bles of black and white glaze. But rather than look­ing messy and hap­haz­ard, it adds visu­al ten­sion to the oth­er­wise sweet, tran­quil faces—like the­se pot peo­ple are slow­ly melt­ing from with­in.

Illustrated Ceramics Capture the Beautiful Spontaneity of Sketchbook Pages

tiger painting

Leah Goren is an illus­tra­tor known for her awe-inspir­ing sketch­book. That spon­ta­neous, painter­ly-style works on more than just paper, though. She’s trans­ferred her vis­i­ble, ener­get­ic brush strokes to hand-built illus­trat­ed ceram­ic plates and ves­sels. They too feel like some­thing out of her 2D illus­tra­tions, but with the­se, they’ve got an added prac­ti­cal pur­pose of dis­play­ing fresh cut flow­ers or store your favorite rings. Per­son­al­ly, I wish she’d make anoth­er one of the tiger dish­es.

Leah sells her one-of-a-kind ceram­ics in her online shop. But if ceram­ics aren’t your thing, Leah also has a Skill­share class called Illus­tra­tion & Inspi­ra­tion: Keep­ing a Sketch­book.

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.
