Cosmic Diner Collection

Cosmic Diner Collection-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve always been fascinated by space, so why not make room for it in my kitchen? Italian designers Diesel Living and Seletti’s eleven piece Cosmic Diner Collection is made of porcelain and decorated with realistic images of the planets, the sun, and several moons. I love that several of the pieces could pass for abstract if you didn’t know what you were looking at.

Elnaz Nourizadeh

Elnaz Nourizadeh-1-Design Crush

 

Iran-born, Melbourne-living Elnaz Nourizadeh started working with clay and learning pottery when she was 17 years old. In 2008 she began her professional life as a potter in Tehran, then moved up and on to having her own studio upon arriving in Melbourne in 2013. Elnaz’s explorations in clay and candy colors are striking and functional, pulling the best from both the modern and ancient ceramics.

Kähler

Kahler-1-Design Crush

 

Kähler was family-run for four generations, from the foundation of the Kähler workshop in 1893 until 1974 when the last generation left the company. Since then the company’s focus has been on following trends and adjusting to them, which they’re remarkably good at. I can’t get enough of their homewares and hope to add some to my own collection soon.

Fringe and Fettle Ceramics

Fringe and Fettle-1-Design Crush

 

Joanna Buyert is the potter behind Fringe and Fettle Ceramics, though she admits it took quite awhile to settle on one artistic discipline as a focus. After a lifetime of creating and making, Joanna went with pottery because of its endless possibilities. I love her simple functional pieces that are sure to make daily activities involving them much more pleasant.
