Me = Crazy About Ceramics...(Via Made By Girl)

I SERIOUSLY l-o-v-e ceramics in a home. I recently bought a Tibor, which is a ginger jar here in the US but a classic decor piece in Mexico. I haven't decided where to place mine, but for now I'm keeping it on the bookshelf in my office. What do you think?!? 


I purchased this HANDMADE piece via Emilia Ceramics. They actually sell an extensive ceramic collection (all handmade) and this particular one also comes in a blue & white ZIG ZAG as a a lamp base


I can't wait to fill this GORGEOUS jar with a bouquet of FRESH FLOWERS one of these days!



Another ceramics shop I wanted to share with you was Jill Rosenwald. This shop has a ton of ceramics, from vases to cute little ICE CREAM bowls!
 
Imagine showing off this ice cream bowl at a dinner party?!? I'm sure it would get all the attention!  These are also all handmade pieces as well, which I love!

Cool jar! Reminds me of the one my husband had from Peru that I BROKE :(

Kim @ Life Analytical said...

I love ceramics, but the price tags tend to scare me off. You know how you're fine with spending a certain amount on one kind of thing but spending that amount on another thing seems excessive? That's me and ceramics.

KIM: Ahhh yes, they can get pretty pricey! $$....I try to hunt around for deals, but sometimes i find one that I just go crazy for & must have.

I want a few of those indigo and ivory zig-zag jars, but I want the ones that are taller than me.

Cheers!

Casa Artelexia said...

Love the selection on Emilia's website. It's not the "typical" Mexican ceramics that we are used to seeing. Because of your post, I'm going to look into carrying some of the chevron pieces. Thanks!!

Have fun and go to a paint your own pottery studio and create your own one of a kind! I know you could do something fabulous!!

Emilia said...

Thanks so much for featuring this piece, Jen! It looks beautiful in your home. The zigzag "tibor" was handmade and painted by a lovely 4th generation family-run business in Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico. Their work is awesome and they are such nice people!
