Virginia Sin Ceramics + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

Last weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair was like a wonderland of beautiful ceramics. If you collect and admire beautiful cups, mugs, planters and vases like I do, this year’s show was heaven. I picked up a few pieces for our home (more on those later) and was most excited to meet some artists and designers in person that I’d never met before. We had the pleasure of being the first blog to write about Virginia Sin‘s plates back in 2008 and I finally got to meet and shake Virginia’s hand in person this year. Her booth, shared with another talented designer, Brooke of BTW Ceramics, was a food stylist’s dream come to life. I wasn’t able to walk out without buying something and I’m pretty sure other people left the same way. In addition to Virginia’s gorgeous faux-paper plates, she launched a line of bowls inspired by coffee filters. I love how light and frilly they look, but how substantial they feel in person. These bowls are part of Virginia’s newly expanded tabletop collection that you can find, and shop, online. If you need a great handmade gift idea for someone in your life, these are a fantastic idea. xo, grace
