A Cupboard Full of Handmade Ceramics

May 19, 2012

Emily Reinhardt is an object maker living and working in Manhattan, Kansas. While making ceramics for her own Etsy shop  and keeping up with her daily blog, she is inspired by the well-designed, everyday objects which people choose to surround themselves. Fresh out of college, Emily is determined to spend her life doing what she loves— making objects. Emily enjoys rainy mornings, hot tea and croissants, because it always takes her back to being in Paris.

As a perpetual renter, I’m always concerned about turning my space into a home. One area I’m really focused on is my kitchen. I’m in the process of making and collecting the perfect supply of handmade dishes. Someday soon I’d like to have a cupboard full of only handmade ceramics.

[Cups: 1. Tasse / white mug by ArtetManufacture; 2. Short white porcelain cup by vitrified studio; 3. Egg shaped mug by sarahveakpottery; 4. Dent tumbler by PigeonToeCeramics; 5. Green Cup by lauracooke.]

For me, it’s all about the connection I feel with that piece of pottery. Sometimes it sticks out right away, and by looks alone we’re instantly connected. Or maybe I have to hold it for a while and realize how great it feels in my hands.

[Bowls: 1. Everything bowl by clam lab; 2. Heart bowl by RossLab; 3. Small ceramic bowl by aLittleDishes; 4. Small gourd bowl by gleenashop; 5. Stoneware bowl set by SuiteOneStudio.]

Sometimes I find myself reaching to the back of my cupboard for a specific bowl over all of the others, just because it seems like a good match for my mood. A bowl can do that to me. How about you?

[Plates: 1. Stoneware mini plates by alluvial; 2. Minimalist plate by OneClayBead; 3. Handmade wedding plate set by christianesutherland;4. Organic entree plate by urbancartel; 5. Zen plate by NingChiao.]

Sometimes I get lost in thought when I’m using dishes that have been made by hand. I imagine this piece of pottery as it started out, just a wet lump of clay. And then I usually smile to myself, because I’m just so darn impressed by what clay and people can do!

[Serving: 1. Hand-Carved stoneware platter by LeiliDesign; 2. Folded serving bowl by PigeonToeCeramics; 3. Burlap tray by FringeandFettle; 4. White focaccia platter by atelierBB; 5. Grasp porcelain bowl by flatearthstudio.] 

The perfect kitchen cupboard opens wide and offers the eye a small private ceramics gallery, full of mismatched dishes made by all different people, with a story connecting to each piece. The guest gets their choice of which piece they want to use, and the owner gets the joy of telling their guest all about the piece they chose.

[For the tabletop: 1. Vita salt and pepper shaker set by MichikoShimada; 2. Mini mortar and pestle by clam lab; 3. White on white bottles by vitrified studio; 4. Porcelain head vase by karst; 5. Robin’s egg creamer by juliaedean.]

Functionality and beauty are two non-negotiables on the insides of my next kitchen cupboards!

    My cabinet is full of dishes I made as a college senior - I had a light course load my last semester and decided that I would need dishes and mugs in my new life as a real adult, so I spent many evenings in the ceramics studio. I still am using them, 12 years later! I have added some other handmade dishes, as well, some made by family memebers - they are so full of life and memories!

    Couldn't agree more! I've been a sucker for studio pottery since i can't remember when, and my kitchen is a clutter of wonky sides, thick glazes and stoney rough bowls. There's something so intimate about a handmade pottery bowl to me. I was only saying to my housemate this morning that very few people recognize how much of a meal's experience is down to the plate or bowl it is served in- and when every town has a thrift, there is no excuse not to have beautiful things in every room of your home.

    I love mismatched dishes, and have a collection of handmade dishes and cups. I love how each feels, and how the mood and look of a meal can change depending on the dishes or cups. Home made food, served in hand made dishes feel so nourishing on so many levels. Just as we need to take time to savour the process of making and really tasting and enjoying our food with loved ones or alone, being mindful of the vessels that hold our meals is just as meaningful. Beautiful selection!

    Yes. I know the feeling of connecting with that one individual cup, bowl, plate. I too have pantry shelves graced with hand created functional pottery. I believe these beautiful works of art compliment what is served in them. Thank you for sharing.

    My kitchen wouldn't be complete without some of Brigitte (Atelier BB) Bouquet's work! Her Wobbly bowls brighten up my kitchen and make my garden harvest look even more spectacular. I love mixing up work from different artists to make for a more eclectic feel, in the heart of my house. Great finds here!

    Beautiful collection! I too would love a kitchen filled with handmade pottery :) I have an aunt who is a potter and she is always giving her stuff away, so I have a stack of mis-matched bowls and some mugs--but I love them all more than I do my other matchy stuff :) They are so personal and comforting to me. Slowly, but surely, we can all fill our cupboards with some HANDMADE LOVE :)

    Wow, it is truely amazing. I have a love for white dishes, and haven't really considered handmade ones. I know, sounds odd. But, they have always sounded do, childish, to me. But this proves that there are some great artists out there, and now I may have to start investing in some.

    my husband and i have been, over the last several months, beginning to swap out our very mismatched (and not in a good thrift store eclectic sort of a way) cupboards piece by piece for handmade pottery. last year we became friends with a potter and bough a couple of his bowls and tea vessels and that started it all. we can't afford to go for everything all at once so we save up and look for things piece by piece that we really love. I was just popping on etsy to look for handmade plates and teapots and here you were with this article! :)

  • AdrienneLojeck

    Adrienne Lojeck from WingsOfClay said 4 years ago

    Using items that are handmade, such as handmade dishes and kitchen items, brings an energy of connection to everything you do. When I wear handmade jewelry, or serve a meal out of a handmade bowl, I feel a profound connection to the maker or artisan, and that connection manifests as increased attention to the details of my surroundings, to the moment, and to the loved ones I am with.

  • christianesutherland

    Christiane Barbato from BlueDoorCeramics said 4 years ago

    They are beautiful! That's exactly how I went back to making ceramics: I just decided I didn't want any Target bought plates anymore. I wanted to eat out of handmade ceramics everyday! It was a project that took me back to ceramics classes for 3 years and I make sets of plates now for people that think like me, that it's such a pleasure to eat out of a handmade plate and that even the food tastes better!!

    I couldn't agree more! My husband and I have started to buy one piece each a year from 'PotFest' (a gathering of potters and ceramics makers showing in the UK, but from all over the world). We love using our unique, mis-matched pieces every day, and it is an inexpensive way to build up a collection :) Their website is here for anyone who is interested:- http://www.potfest.co.uk/

    What a great article and such gorgeous pieces! How neat it would be to fill my kitchen cupboards with all handmade ceramic pieces and have my guests pick their own to use for a meal. I love that!! =)

    All of a sudden I remembered the little red clay dishes we made as young children, using clay from our creek bed. They fell apart, but still...it was fun at the time. Ceramic indisputably beats plastic any day of the week....imo.

    ceramics take more storage space, but it would be worth it.

    I could not agree more. Like all handmade items, pots bring a joy to what might otherwise be a bland bowl of cereal or average cup of coffee. I have pots for every occasion and each time I use them, I learn something else about them.

    Absolutely amazing. You know, in a way, I kinda wish creating wasn't so limitless. I could list off the top of my head over 100 projects that I would love to jump right into. When I hit the lottery, I am just going to have a frame put up and invite a few hundred artists over for a giant interior design fest. I would be more than content not seeing a single corporate logo in the entire home.

    They are so beautiful! ... but I can't afford to spend more than $20 on a single cup! I just can't! I love handmade... but this is not a great ecomony for it. :(

    My thoughts exactly! How does one create a wedding registry that can direct guests to items one likes? X

    Love your outlook on pottery. I love to see the person behind the pot, each touch to the clay expressing a unique voice. I am constantly inspired and amazed by fellow potters and their work - it keeps me going in my own development.
