British designer, Tracy Wilkinson launched TW Workshop earlier this year for her new collection of handmade ceramics, one of a kind furniture and home accessories. I love her planters, ceramic vessels intricately woven with wicker and twine. The rustic, handmade look would be a wonderful way to warm up a modern space—especially this time of year! She has a masters degree in fashion and textile design from the royal college of art, and now lives and works in LA. Shake it Tracy.
Portland’s Pigeon Toe Ceramics makes these wonderful string lights. There are ten porcelain light shades in a set and you can get them unglazed or glazed with your choice of 15 different colors (shown here in peach). They can be used indoors or out, what a lovely way to light up an outdoor, summer party. Shake it.
Dahlhaus ceramics are all handmade by Heather Braun-Dahl, who now makes her living working in clay and painting out of a small studio in Vancouver. Her pieces caught my eye on Etsy and as I read on about her I realized I’ve seen her striped vases at Anthroplogie! Heather says— “dahlhaus ceramics is handmade pottery inspired by my love of spring and gardens, vintage fabric, modern pop art, and color.” She doesn’t use any decals to glaze her work so it’s all single glaze fired to cone 6 with foodsafe glazes, all mixed in her studio from scratch. Shake it Heather.
Joon&Jung is a conceptual product design studio based in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The two met at the Design Academy of Eindhoven and have been working together since 2008. They have an eclectic collection of wonderful creations, but the Melting Cup was too splendid to pass up. Each cup is hand made with a slightly different shape to each. They have developed color clays to bring the cups a misty warm hue. “Melting your heart and it will melt on the table” So lovely. Shake it Joon&Jung.
