My bumper sticker, if I had one, would probably read, “I stop for flowers”. That’s what I did when I saw these beauties on the Colossal website. The porcelain florals were created by Israeli ceramist, Zemer Peled. The pieces are constructed from ceramic shards of blue cobalt traditionally used in Japanese pottery. You can view more of these amazing sculptures here in her portfolio.

Drawing inspiration from vintage and mid-century modern, artist Heather Dahl has created this collection of simple, irresistible designs found on bowls, mugs and vases. This Vancouver-based artist/ceramist sells her ceramics under the brand, Dahlhaus, and has exhibited and sold her designs through galleries and retailers all over North America. She says this of her work:
“The connection between a maker and their handmade product is so much more meaningful when it’s been made, start to finish, by one Maker.”

London-based ceramist, Hitomi Hosono, has studied porcelain work in both the Japanese and European traditions. Her current collection is inspired by leaves and flowers, of which, she says: “I find myself drawn to the intricacy of plants, examining the veins of a leaf, how its edges are shaped, the layering of a flower’s petals. I look, I touch, I draw.”
