Here I am, fan of pottery. Handmade or machine made, vintage or brand spankin’ new, oldschool or contemporary, I love it all.
Clare Dubina found a fabulous way to mix it all together in a show stopping result: upcycling vintage stoneware into new modern vessels. I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE. Know it. lol :)
So that I would be stuck on mobiles, it would have to be very contemporary looking. And that’s exactly what Melissa of AMradio does.
Made out of plastic straws (Hum hello!? Brilliant.) or in brass in some cases, she creates beautiful intricate geometric lightweight mobiles (or Xmas tree ornaments, or plant hangers) that’ll fit any modern decor.
Her shop also offers many awesome vintage finds, such as there rustic looking wooden crates.
While you’re at it, check out her husband John’s shop too, Urban Brewery, which offers small kits (with instructions, of course) for those who want to explore making their own beer! Pretty awesome!!
Talk about flashy perfect color combos! Nicole Porter‘s wood vessels are turned from single planks, then painted and sealed with non-toxic film. Perfect fruit bowls or serving platters, yeah?
And those spoons could totally be hung on an art wall (seriously considering it…)! SO PRETTY! :)
With a passion for making simple utilitarian objects, Shelley of Vitrified Studio created fabulous ceramic and stoneware pottery pieces that will fit any kitchen or dining room.
I love the organic shapes, low key colors and practical quality of everything from this Portland shop! GO! :)
