Pretty, pretty porcelain
I’m a sucker for white porcelain ware. So when Portland’s own Lisa Hough recently launched her ceramics line Pigeon Toe Ceramics, I couldn’t wait to see the new collection in person. Last week, Lisa brought in some samples for our store (her studio is actually just a few blocks away from the shop!).
I love the simplicity and organic form of Pigeon Toe Ceramics. And the gentle dents and folds are a visual reminder of how each piece is handthrown and formed by the artist. One of my favorite pieces in the collection is the Dent Bud Vase ($26). It has an endearing shape, and it would look great in any style of home.
Seeing the collection in person, I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of each piece. Although it looks fragile, the Dent Bud Vase can easily pose as a paper weight. With it being so weighted, this is one piece that I wouldn’t be afraid to showcase in my kid and animal-friendly domain.
The current Pigeon Toe Ceramics collection can be found on our online shop here. Currently the lead time is about 3 weeks. And look for Artist Series coming soon!
