whilst hunting around flickr I discovered this wonderful handmade mug – it invites you to wrap your fingers around it. It is perfect in all its imperfection.
There seems to be a return to the handmade and the quirky. People want to bring the imperfect into their lives and homes, welcoming in a bit of soul. Some recent examples of this happening is the home collection for toast with a collection of hand pressed ceramics. Hand pressing only goes to accentuate the wobbles and the wonkiness especially when all glazed in soft muted colours. Another example is soulestudio who are obviously inspired by nature to produce pieces that just make you warm inside. So embrace the imperfection, the wobble, the dribble.
