From intricate textured tableware to sleek pretty planters, ceramics are having a major moment right now – and I, along with the rest of Instagram, am 100% here for it. The beauty of ceramics lie in their dual functionality and artistry; they’re sculptural and unique pieces of artwork that can actually be put to practical use. What’s more, ceramics are surprisingly accessible. Sure, one-off pieces from established big name retailers can get expensive, but there are a plethora of independent artists offering handcrafted small-batch collections at a fraction of the cost. Enter Etsy: the paper goods and crafts site we all know and love, which also happens to be hiding some of my favorite modern ceramic stores. Stand by as I round up six of the best Etsy ceramic shops.
For a minimalist approach to ceramics with a touch of glam, head on over to Honeycomb Studio’s Etsy shop.
From Bud Vases to Ring Holders and Breakfast Bowls, the studio has a delightfully curated collection of ceramics for the modern home – all with that signature flash of gold detail. Founder Courtney Hamill crafts each piece by hand, meaning no two pieces are ever the same. Who says bespoke has to cost the earth?
Get back to basics with Henselmann Pottery’s rustic-minimal collection of hand thrown ceramics.
The New Mexico-based studio has made a name for itself as the go-to for kinfolk-esque tableware. Think earthy tones and natural textures. Simply add a wood backdrop, linen tablecloth and a few artfully scattered green herbs for the ultimate farmhouse-inspired flatlay.
Cool and contemporary are seldom used to describe the whole ceramic aesthetic, but the KSceramics collection goes to show that ceramics are actually more versatile than you think.
KSceramics looks to Scandi-minimalism for inspiration, resulting in a collection of sleek geometric tableware clad in cool-toned pastel hues. Owner Ksenia prides herself on thoughtful design and good craftsmanship, and this attention to detail shows in the quality of her pieces, which easily belie their affordable price tags.
Night Shift Ceramics
Inspired by bright colors, graphic patterns and unique shapes, Night Shift Ceramics is for those looking to add fun and personality to their space.
Some of my favorite pieces feature in their vibrant terrazzo collection. I recommend opting for the Ceramic Terrazzo Jewelry Dish to add a touch of vintage panache to your dressing table.
Calling all sophisticates! For all things modern chic and marble, you have to check out ONEandMANY.
The studio’s matte marble glazed dinnerware is the epitome of elegance. Though the silhouettes are modest and simple, the real magic lies in the imperfectly perfect prints and patterns their pieces come in.
If you’re still not over the whole millennial pink thing then CONCEPTCeramic is the Etsy ceramic brand for you.
Alongside saccharine-hued tableware, Zlatina, the owner of the studio, is known for experimenting with different textures. Delicate scalloped tumblers and minimalist origami-inspired bowls are just a couple of the gems worth exploring – when you eventually outgrow pink that is.
