Hodgepodge of Illustrated Ceramics
If you are looking for a real conversation piece for your table- I find illustrated ceramics are a great story for the table.
Anything can be illustrated and applied to a ceramic item. Just look- I found a hole hodgepodge of interesting, odd, unique, and artistic illustrators who applied their skill and craft to ceramics. Below you will find everything from women bathing and the British seaside to a bob haircut, a spirograph, a wreath and spiders and skulls.
I can hear the conversation now:
Me: “Can I pour you some tea?”
Friend: “It seems that I have women bathing in my tea cup!”
Me: “Oh yes, that’s true. You do have women bathing in your tea cup now that I’ve added water to the cup.”

To have a similar conversation at your table- find your closest illustrator friend and introduce them to your closest ceramist friend- or maybe if you are lucky- they are the same person, and browse through their cool creations.
Do you have any illustrated ceramic pieces at home? Any interesting stories attached to the piece?
