I can’t help it: I am deeply in love with ceramics. The more raw they look, the more handmade, and inspired by ancient shapes, the more I love them. Frankly I have too many ceramics pieces already at home. Most of my ceramics are vintage finds. Yet I can not stop buying new pieces when I discover them. However, I can proudly say that none of these pieces in today’s blog post is in my home. Yet I would buy each and every piece in an instant!

These pieces have all a very ancient look. They could actually come from excavation sites. To me, they evoke a feeling of empires long past and forsaken cultures. My archaeology loving heart skips a beat! 1. Takashi Sogo via Etsy. 2. Beautiful work by Australian artist Nicolette Johnson. 3. Skoby Ceramics via Etsy. 4. Bruno Gambone vases via Invaluable.

As an Urban Jungle Blogger I would love to have a balcony or even a garden where I could grow even more plants and maybe some veggies and fruits. And I’d be gladly watering them with this fantastic ceramics piece poetically called ‘La Chantepleure’. This kind of watering devices date back to medieval times.

Speaking of my plant obsession: How about these cute trinket bowls? 5. DIY trinket bowls via Lia Griffith. 6. Liquorice Moon Studio via Etsy.

I am equally smitten by these beautiful Silvia K ceramics plates photographed by Emma Gutteridge.

There we go with even more ancient looking ceramics. Pre-historic shapes and raw surfaces are absolutely trending I think. These pieces are by Japanese artist Yoko Komae found via OEN.

Last but not least I love to sip my coffee out of beautiful handmade mugs. This double striped angle mug by ceramicist Jeremy Ayers is a winner! I would love to have it! Found it via Mociun. If you want more inspiration and ideas about ceramics that I love check out my ceramics Pinterest board. And now I have to clean off the dust of my ceramics collection. Ha!

    “Silvia K ceramics plates” are the ones of my choice. Moreover, the collection seems beautiful as well as will surely help me in suggesting ceramics to people

    We all need a chantepleure in our lives! Using it must be so therapeutic.

    Love that ceramic watering vessel! I have never seen one like that. I too love ceramics. Your love of ceramics (easily seen in your photos) is one of your interior choices that draws me to your IG.
