I am totally in love with this beautiful pottery from Atelier Stella Pottery. So in love I have just purchased the ceramic plant holder in the top picture. Stella has only been making and selling her quirky pottery since last summer and working a full time job alongside her pottery business means pieces are limited. More of her work is due to hit etsy early March, to check out her past pottery check out her tumblr page here.
"I trained in graphic design and illustration, moving to London 8 years ago to work as a children's book illustrator. Four years ago I started doing ceramics at an evening class and totally loved it. So this summer I decided to take the first step as a ceramic artist, I bought my own kiln, did the renegade craft fair in London and after an amazing response I haven't looked back since!
I hand build and sculpt all my work from slabs and pinch pots to create one of a kind pieces that I would love in my home - and I do have a lot! I'm influenced by Swedish and Italian potters from the 50's and 60's, mixing the rustic use of patterns with the frivolity of character.
As I have a full time job and a small kiln I only make work in small batches. Due to this reason I can't take any custom orders at present, but will add work as I make it. Apart from the small succulent pots I rarely make the same piece twice and when I do they tend to vary in size, pattern and glaze so if you like a piece grab it while you can!"
