So THIS Is Where You Can Buy All Those Stunning Ceramics You See On Instagram
If you've ever been scrolling through Instagram and been stopped in your tracks by a mug, you're not alone: One of the biggest advantages of the social media platform is the exposure it's offered to smaller ceramics artists, allowing consumers to reap the benefits with unique, artisanal wares. But it can be hard to scroll back through your feed to find those eye-catching pieces, so we did the hard work for you. We scoured the depths of Instagram for the best ceramics you can purchase—these are our top picks.
If you're looking for mugs with eye-catching colors, Brooklyn's Dustin Barzell has you covered. With bold patterns and beautiful pinks, blues, and turquoises, these will brighten up your morning (they're a favorite of Unicorn Toast inventor Vibrant & Pure). Buy 'em online at ceramicism.football, starting at $60.
Hanselmann Pottery is the epitome of farm-to-table chic, featuring bowls, plates, and drinkware in an earthy off-white with a beautiful, naturally textured band on the bottom. We especially love their thumb cups, which feature an eye-catching and ergonomic divot in the body. Check out the full collection at Hanselmann Pottery, starting at $20.
A Question of Eagles
These gorgeous mugs and cups take a rustic, off-white base and add surprising textures, with drawn-on designs and an accordion-like construction that will have all of your co-workers talking. They also sell bowls, plates, and planters. Find it all on their website, starting at $32.
If you're a fan of Alison Wu's dreamy pastel colors, you'll love Ren Vois, where founder Tina creates ceramics in a sunset palette. We love the lavender bowls and the cotton-candy-toned unicorn platters. Check out Ren-Vois.com for the full collection, starting at $30.
If you're looking for pieces to make you smile, you've come to the right place. A Brian Giniewski piece is unmistakable—with bright colors dripping down the sides of mugs and bowls, his work will bring a sense of play to your time at the table. We also love his rainbow-confetti-speckled plates, which are like a party for your food. Pieces start at $24 on his website.
If you have a tiny arrow tattooed on your wrist (or you've just always wanted one), you'll love Sarah Wolf's gorgeous, bohemian ceramics. Handmade in Portland, they benefit from bold primary colors and shapes evocative of color-blocked nature. We especially love the turquoise mountain mug. Find them on WolfCeramics.com, with prices starting at $26.
