Thank you to Elle Decoration, UK Edition for introducing me to the work of French ceramicist Georges Jouve (1910-1964). Images from Jousse Entreprise.
Thank you also to ED, UK for introducing me to the Fabbriche collection by Rosaria Rattin for Kose. She designed the fuchsia vase above. I almost had a heart attack when I saw it! Hot pink is my absolute favorite color, and finding a modern vase in this color is difficult. I adore it paired with a more vintage looking Chinese, as well as the warm color combined with cool. (This is a color scheme I've written about quite a bit.)
I had some difficulty finding more of her vases. I love them! Wish they were available in the U.S. I want them all. They appear to be matte finish, which is my favorite.This image came from a Chinese blog (link). Simply beautiful.
Thank you to Vogue Living Australia for introducing me to the incredible work of Robin Best. Ms. Best has a deep reverence for the ancient Chinese traditions. She crafts vessels influenced by this tradition and pairs them with her modern vessels. I am in awe of her craftsmanship. She is also making me rethink the placement of my vases. Though I generally do not like patterns, I adore the way they pop against the white simple forms.

I am mixing glass and ceramics more. I never thought anyone could rival my love of Blenko, but Joe Cariati is doing just that. I am insanely in love with his glass works.
I love his take on the popular vintage barber shop bottle.
Yep. It was a good weekend.
