d. hergt design.

I couldn’t resist…bought the ceramic ornament {above} from D.Hergt Design this morning. I love her “jumbley” pieces {above} and those gorgeous shades of greens and blues…and I can’t resist the little swirls and flowers pressed into the porcelain. Some of her pieces have a little ladybug tucked away. So sweet!

HAPPY ceramics.

Such an aptly named line of ceramics by Kevin O’Shea….HAPPY! I love the shapes, and the designs, and the colors. Ok. Pretty much all of it. The little bowl on the bottom left is a wall vase…swoon!

Kevin’s day job is an interior designer…you can see some of his portfolio here.

99 feelings.

July 16, 2009


I love this project by Belgium based Art Mind. It is a series of babushkas with added textures to convey different feelings. Here’s how artist, Mitsy explains it:

“It derives from a project I did many years ago reflecting my self-portrait. I called it ‘how the outside can tell how you feel inside’. I started out with 9 feelings and then I suddenly thought of making 99 of them…”

I love the swirly “giddy” one above…You can see all of the babushkas on her flickr page…or check out her blog…she’s multi-talented, and has lots of crafty things to share…{including a rad scratch-off lottery-ticket tutorial}.

Joanna Mendocino creates wonderful whimsical little ceramic pieces for her shop Pretty Random Objects. I first saw her work on the fantastic blog, Creature Comforts a little bit ago. I’m going through a little ceramics phase these days. can’t seem to get enough. Isn’t that little bird vase the sweetest thing ever?!!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
