Etsy Find! Paulova Ceramics

Morning, friends!

Firstly, thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday from Young House Love.  Your comments made me blush and were so, so kind.  I always love new readers – welcome!

Today I’m featuring Paula Lopez-Otero’s beautiful pottery which I found via her etsy shop. Inspired by Scandinavian design, Paulova Ceramics are handmade in San Francisco and feature simple, clean lines. All of Paula’s pieces highlight some sort of contrast in textures, from the exposed raw clay body, to the interior smooth glaze, to the cork, which tops the jars.

My personal favorite pieces are these darling salt and pepper bowls. They come in a variety of fun colors and are of course handmade in every way. Wouldn’t they make a great housewarming present or a lovely gift for someone who loves to cook?

Paula’s creations also include candles (which come in a variety of scents) and other pretty bowls. She even has handmade garden stakes!

I love the handmade feel of these pieces – the hand stamped words such as “salt” and “sugar” are organic and turn ordinary clay into a memorable piece. Love!

    i love your site! i was tapping my foot with impatience after yhl gave us a sneak peak of your place last week and the full house tour was even better than i expected! i spent wayyyy too much time browsing your site alst night and i had a few questions :)
    first, do you have a full house before/after or tour somewhere that i missed?
    second, i noticed that you change things up a lot and i was wondering what you do with things you replace? i always feel so guilty getting something new if it means something else is just going to go into storage. do you always try to find a new home for your items? or do you sell/donate them?

    I am SO very glad that you’re featuring Paulova Ceramics. I have one of her jars with cork lid that I use for my salt cellar… I use it every day and LOVE IT. I purchased it originally as a cream and sugar set, I use the cream vessel to hold my makeup brushes, etc. Paula also worked with me to create a custom wall plaque. She’s a dream and her work is absolutely WONDERFUL!
