Time for another homewares break. I stumbled across this brand in Liberty at the weekend and it really struck a chord with me. Liberty stock a large range of their ceramic ware. It’s beautifully simple stuff – very elegant at the same time as being very raw. I’m in to the basic items they produce such as the simple plates and bowls. In particular Liberty stock these super raw vases that look like they take their form from tin cans.
The odd decorative items are beautiful too as the glaze crudely fills in the forms almost obliterating any real detail that might have been in the black terracotta clay they’re made from. It’s a nice mix between the very ornate world of French baroque and quickly thrown japanese peasant pottery. The stuff is deceptively light, but feels of a very high quality.
The brand produce a lot of other “lifestyle” products, but it’s really the ceramics I’m interested in (and the candles look ace too). You can view more of the their ceramics here, although it’s hard to see the beauty in this stuff until you pick it up in person. Try and get past their website; it’s not very user friendly to say the least.
