designer jane schouten of all the luck in the world recently made over these simple ceramic vessels. these vessels weren’t familiar to me, but in the netherlands they are used (though not as frequently anymore) to absorb excess heat and moisture as they hang on the side of radiators. jane decided to update a collection she found at a thrift store with paper maché and her own decorations. now they make for a colorful wall decoration! great work, jane!
