I am a sucker for beautiful ceramics. I can always find a mug I love, and don’t even get me started on tiny plates and bowls. So cute! Of course, running this blog and the baking and food styling that comes with it increases my lure to ceramic homeware. My foodie creations and photos just wouldn’t be as beautiful without them! So, as a fan of supporting small businesses and creativity, here’s my guide of Where to Find Beautiful Ceramics.
My plates, bowls, and mugs are purchased a little bit all over the place. I often find beautiful homeware during my travels. Most recently, I a pretty ceramic tumbler at the Japanese Garden during our visit to Portland. I’ve also got really good at keeping my plants alive (I used to be the worst plant mama, always killing them by watering them either too much or too little), which has turned me on to pretty planters and pots.
With that said, as I mentioned in my recent post about living sustainably
– I try to be mindful of what and how much
I buy. I’m very choosy about what I decide to add to my little collection of ceramics and often go with the one in one out principle, meaning that if I purchase a new mug, I donate one of my old ones to charity or a second hand shop. Or gift it to a friend. I hope you do too!
