8. Look for handmade lamps, sculptures, and planters
“Handmade pottery can add elements of color, texture, and visual interest to any interior space,” explains Casey Taylor, an independent ceramic artist who teaches at Kingston Ceramics Studio in Kingston, NY. “From incorporating artisan crafted mugs on your open kitchen shelving, to bringing in sculptural ceramic vessels to your living space; these objects bring the maker into your home and can elevate the depth of design by offering a very tangible and human element.”
“Many people assume handmade ceramics to be primarily cups, plates, bowls, and vases- but the reality is you can find a plethora of clay objects to adorn your home that are functional in many other ways,” shares Taylor. “Lamps, sculptures, and planters are all wonderful ways to incorporate handmade pottery into interior design and add elements of light, color, and texture in unexpected and creative ways.”@kingstonceramicsstudio
