Throughout the month of September My Craft Curator has decided to highlight the ceramic creations of craftswomen and craftsmen from all over the world by posting a photo of a crush every day on our Instagram page. Under the hashtag #30shadesofclay we can give free rein to our passion for small pots, vases, plates, cups, and many more! And so that you can find it a little easier, here is the report of all the ceramists presented during this first week of the “Month of Ceramics”.
Ceramist based in Indonesia, his creations in light tones combine rusticity and elegance.

Our stay in Norway in August gave us the opportunity to fill up with Norwegian craft inspiration. Among them were the ceramics of Ment. They are two sisters, one specialized in ceramics and the other in wood. Their creations are housed in a former ski factory in Fåberg, Norway. Fun fact : their creations are the only representative of Norway at the Maisons and Objet (a major French Interior design fair) this year!
We discovered the Casa Cubista ceramics during our first visit to the THEM pop up. Since then we never got tired of this sleek graphic design playing on stripes, dots and braces. Founded in Olhão, a busy port of the Algarve in southern Portugal, the name ‘cubista’ is the name of the cubist-style white buildings found in the streets of the old city.
Les petites porcelaines
First favorite of our selection for Sarah, small porcelain are created by Justine Ribera in his shop Vallauris capital of ceramics. Presented in the form of a triptych, the post presenting the small porcelain thus proposes a decoration corresponding to the style of these pretty two-colored cups.

L’atelier des garçons
The two creators of L’atelier des garçons have chosen this material for its softness, its plasticity and its light tones. Two styles with two different results, one purified playing on the
transparency of porcelain (the work of Jean-Marc) and the other colorful inspired by the architectural style of cities like Royan and Brasilia (the work of Eric). What is certain is that these two styles please us as much as the other!

Winner of the “Elle British decoration award” in the ceramics category, Vicky Lindo’s work is easily recognizable by its motifs and shapes reminiscent of antique ceramics and these bright blue and red tones.
A ways away
To end this first week of 30 Shades of Clay, we have chosen the nice little bubbles of ceramist Clare McGibbon of A ways away that displays faces on charming glasses, plates and cups.
We hope that this first selection has added a few must-haves on your favorite ceramics list! See you next week for more # 30shadesofclay!
See you soon,
My Craft Curator
