One of my home decor splurges in recent years has been handmade ceramics. This past year has made me appreciate the quality of unique, one-of-a-kind work even more. And I love that ceramics combine art and function into pieces you can both use and treasure. Here are 18 of my favorites who create the most stunning pieces…
Top row: Ceramicism, Lily Glass, From Tree to Sea*
2nd row: Julia Ballenger, Pomelo Casa, Knotwork LA*
3rd row: Lolly Lolly Ceramics*, Rami Kim Studio*, Deepblack Design*
4th row: Mud Witch*, Om Ceramic*, Concrete Geometric*
5th row: A Ways Away, Eliana Bernard*, Uno Ichi*
6th row: Freckled Pottery, Balcony Ceramics*, Rare Bird
One thing to keep in mind with most of these makers…everything is limited edition and sells fast. They are often one person making ALL of the pieces. So if you see that items are sold out, subscribe to their email list and follow them on Instagram. Then you’ll be alerted when their next collection is out to scoop some up! And, if you’re looking for something special, you could always reach out and see if they’ll create a custom piece for you!
