Casa Verónica’s ceramic Ixtlali Candleholders pay tribute to the Mexican drip-glaze technique, where multicolored swatches of paint cascade downward. Handmade and two inches tall, each of these mesmerizing holders is one of a kind and and finished with an interior and exterior gloss.
Available in three colors (dark grey, light grey or sand), this mug and saucer set from Brutes Ceramics is handmade in London in alluring textured stoneware, bolstered by a contrasting handle. The large mugs (which hold 260ml) are available with or without the saucer. Price is in Pounds.
Brooklyn-based ceramicist Eleni Kontos crafts custom clay portraits in fun, off-kilter, cartoon styles. Each sculpture features a small hollow body (measuring around four to five inches in height), a detachable topper head and marbled colors the artist dyes herself. Altogether, it’s an endearing, personal gift for a loved one.
