Today I'm loving... these amazing stoneware bottles by Sara Paloma. *Put them on my Christmas wish list.
How utterly charming is this little house by Japanese brand, Lodge? The smoke coming out of the chimney is from the incense cone inside - it's a wee little incense pot. Each house is made individually by hand and great care has been taken to achieve a realistic looking surface. I like it. Available here (Japanese).
Fabulous monochromatic pieces from UK-based, online store Hidden Art Shop.
Clockwise from top left: Rose Clock by Mr Kaliski, House candleholder by Sono Design, Luxury cup & saucer by Evthokia, Blaue Blume large Lace Cake Plate by Tina Tsang, Stamp mirror by by Soner Ozenc, Mantle-Clock-C by Giles Miller, Shadow chair by Duffy London, Scribble coat rack by by HeadSprung! Ltd.
There are somethings in this world that you just don't think will change, like the wheel and calendars and public transport. And then someone goes and re-invents the clock. German company Biegert & Funk have created a super-stylish clock based on a typographic time format in 5 minute intervals with four-minute dots. This clock is not only really, really good looking (its available in a range of striking colours) but it is also packed with clever features and is low energy consuming. If you love the concept but the clock is a little pricey for you, you can always buy the App for your iPhone or iPod. Find out more here.
I've mentioned Esther Coombs before (here) and I promised a better look at her beautiful ceramics, so here it is. UK based Esther 'upcycles' old china tea sets, plates and jugs by hand-drawing her own unique art onto each piece. I think these would make a charming housewarming or bridal kitchen tea gift. Esther is going to start a commissions section in her etsy store so I'm guessing you could even get something personalised. I adore it... and yes Mum, that is a Royal Albert set in the last picture.
Today I'm inspired by the gorgeous blush-toned decorations from Martha Stewart Weddings. Easily adapted for non-wedding events - so pretty!
I thought these bright and beautiful ceramics from Ninainvorm would be the perfect way to say Hello Weekend! Nina hand-screen prints her own ceramics as well as some vintage 'redecorated' ceramics. Very cheerful. Happy weekend everyone!
Wow. This bed is amazing! The bed posts are laser cut tree shapes, hand sanded and finished with white translucent wax. It comes from Finland-based, Attila Design and would you believe, is for sale on etsy.
A big post today - lots of pretty coloured ceramics. Have a great weekend!
Curvaceous cup by jfish designs - great for warming your hands on cold days. And yes, it can stand up by itself.
Miniature clay houses from The Little Red Door.
Lotus teapot by Tjossem Ceramics.
Dandelion tumbler and blue nesting bowls by New Moon Studio. This artist has lots of beautiful things. Definitely worth checking out the entire range.

Yes, apparently ceramics can get a little odd. First up some cute little eccentric pieces followed by some a little more bizarre.
Handmade animal cups from A. Speer Studio.
Porcelain fortune cookies by Yoga Goat.
Oh yes, now we're talking 'kooky'. Hybrid creature figurines by The Runny Bunny.
And now, the seriously creepy. Clockwise from top left: planter, cup, tile and salt and pepper shakers all formed from baby heads by Kniffin Pottery. Yikes.
Am rapidly losing my patience with this wretched cold. But, will soldier on this week and show you some more ceramics - a thing I have a growing appreciation for (not quite an obsession... yet).
Beautiful ceramic bowl with hand engraved edge detail by London-based maker, LM London.
I'm a huge Pride & Prejudice fan... oh, Mr Darcy.... so I quite adore this little creamer jug by Brookish.
Flower vase by Red Hot Pottery.
Super sweet coffee/tea pot by artist Esther Coombs. Will show you more from this artist another day - she definitely has many more beautiful pieces to study.
Lace votives by Villarreal Ceramics.
Small pot from Pigeon Toe Ceramics.
... Jonathan Adler's new relief vases. Also, I have a nasty cold so the sunny colours in this picture make me feel a little more cheery. Time for a cup of tea and a little lie down.
Have a great weekend!
