An art form handed down through generations, ceramics has played an important role in human culture for thousands of years. Coming in all shapes and sizes, it’s also a great way to bring texture and personalisation into your home. From dishes and decorative pieces to flowerpots and lamps, you can choose neutral colours for an earthy look, or an assortment of colorful pieces for an eclectic vibe.
Choosing ceramics is always a very personal experience. Not only are you choosing a color, size, and shape, you are also choosing a sense of mood. Whether it is an accent piece, a custom-made design, or something you use every day, handmade ceramics will add a grounded touch to any home environment.
To start, imagine which space you would like to enhance – walkways, patios, entrances, and common interior spaces are most ideal. Afterward, consider your styles and colours.
Your home is sacred and your personal space should speak to your soul. It should be a reflection of you, so choose shapes, colors, and textures of ceramics that are aesthetically pleasing, feel good, and function well. Pottery, like any art, should have purpose and meaning, so strive for works that have a story. The best ceramics out there are a fine balance of neutral yet refined. Ceramics are made from the earth, crafted by hand, and made into something beautiful and functional. It’s pretty amazing, why wouldn’t you want to bring a component of nature into one’s living space?
