Mrs Peterson Pottery is a Blue Mountains based business that create some very divine pieces.
A stunning range of hand-made porcelain jewellery and homewares that have me smitten with their charming irregularities, wonky forms and cute impressions. I really am a sucker for anything that shows the mark of the maker and the process it is created with!
Tell me I’m not alone, aren’t they just beautiful?
Another recent discovery is the work of ceramicist Helen Levi.
Hailing from Brooklyn New York, Helen’s work has a fresh approach to this very traditional art. She has a sense of playfulness with the materials which allows her to create pieces which are unique and interesting, ranging from the quirky to lovely combinations of textures and colours. I am especially in love with her marbled collection featured below with its rustic, raw appeal and unpredictable patterns. So pretty.
Other than making functional objects, Helen plans to stem further into sculptural work, creating on a larger scale and having a little more creative freedom from the practical. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with!!
If you are interested in purchasing some of her beautiful pieces you can do so via her web store.
Here is a recent design that showed at Milan Design Week Salone del Mobile 2014.
POT.PURRI by 3 dots collective is an interesting design collection of modular containers which can be mixed and matched to create over 50 unique objects spanning from vases and vessels through to lamps.
The main segments are made from concrete and wire of various diameters and dimensions, all of which are interchangeable. This allows the customer to create a custom combination of pieces for their project and furthermore, allows them to update their purchase by reconfiguring whenever they please.
I love the pop of colour that the wire elements bring to the collection, they break up the heavy, solid aesthetic of the concrete perfectly and mimic the forms and patterns in basketry, just with a polished, modern edge.
If you are looking for some items that are classic, timeless and durable to add to your kitchen than look no further then the fabulous Falcon Enamelware range.
These iconic products have been baking mouth-watering meals since the 1920s! Traditionally they were only available in that classic white and navy combo but now Falcon has plans to extend the colour range starting with a brilliant red. These pieces will last the test of time, you can use them in the oven or on the stove top, hell, you can bring them camping if you wish! Picnics, parties or just everyday meals this range is a staple for any kitchen and gains extra brownie points for being dishwasher safe (We ALL love that !)
A recommended addition to any home and a true design classic.
Readily available through many stores worldwide, for Aussies I found Peters of Kensington to have the best prices 🙂
