These 9 ceramic shops from Etsy offer beautifully made, original art pieces that completely elevate your aesthetic.
This handmade piece from Free Folding takes the gritty industrial aesthetic and gives it a minimalist twist. Its matte-white ceramic build is perfect for holding a couple of potted cacti, though we love it for corralling desk objects at your workspace, too.

Swiped with deep-blue brushstrokes that are unique to each piece, these handleless coffee cups from 1220 Ceramics are the artistic touch that your tea cupboard's been waiting for.
Handcrafted objects bring an inimitable touch of wabi-sabi to a space — this planter from Megan Louise Ceramics is molded without a potter's wheel, so each one displays small variations and imperfections that make it truly unique. The lace imprint gives it a distinctly boho look, grounding your aesthetic and adding a little calm anywhere it's placed.
We love the wearable-art quality of Marissa Grana's ceramic jewelry — each piece is slightly different, which make them all the more charming. These geometric studs are available in 10 different designs, each beautifully accented with 22-karat gold.
We can't see ourselves ever storing away this offbeat art piece. Handthrown by Wren Lab Ceramics, this warped vase holds a small bouquet or single frond with art-object elegance. Its molded matte exterior gives it irresistible visual tactility.
Bean and Bailey specializes in faceted gem-like vessels that feel ultramodern and versatile in a space, thanks to their exterior matte finish. These salt bowls are a fabulous way to set out your spices at a dinner party, though we also like them as just the same.

Honeycomb Ceramics' trio of bud vases each stand at a teeny-tiny 3.5 inches tall, and they're accented with a band of gold leaf to really make them shine. They're just the right size for buttercups, chamomile, or other dainty wildflowers.
This mug from Julia Smith Ceramics looks like it was practically made for curling up with on a cold night. It displays a dusky gradient of greens and blues, highlighting a bare-branched tree silhouette and a shining golden moon.
Handmade in the Netherlands by maker Nina van de Goor, this ceramic plate has a style that couples folk art motifs and storybook whimsy. It's food-safe, though we think it's more suited to wall display than tabletop use!
