new from perch ceramics

I love it when an artist decides to switch things up and try something totally different from his or her current style, so I was thrilled to hear from Amy at Perch. She’s been selling her ceramics, handmade in Brooklyn, for the past eight years and decided it was time for a change. Instead of her trademark glossy white clay and smooth lines, she’s embracing matte terra cotta and rougher, thicker edges. The new collection is called “Artifacts,” and it includes vessels in four sizes with triangles or circles in white or black. The prices are great for handmade work ($32–$48), and you can shop the full collection online right here. Here’s hoping I can fill them with plants that I won’t accidentally over water by the end of the month . . . xo, grace

  1. I’m so happy that you shared these – I’m always on the hunt for fun containers for plants!

  2. I love the rustic, earthy designs. They look wonderful with succulents. I would love them!

  3. I love these. Perfect combination of traditional materials with a really modern feel. Also I am basically a sucker for any photo with a cactus in it.
