I'm so excited to share that I was recently invited to share my advice for homeowners looking to decorate with handmade ceramics on the Redfin blog! It's an honor to be recognized as an expert — although it's still hard to imagine myself as one! Even with six years of making under my belt, I do feel that I have a long way to go before I'm a maestro of my craft.
Here's a short snippet of my advice from the Redfin article:
10. Consider both style and functionality
“My advice for homeowners decorating with pottery is to think about both style and functionality,” says Audrey Mason, Owner and Pottery Artist at Pottery Mason in Rehoboth Beach, DE, a small-batch ceramics practice based in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. “When you’re choosing handmade pottery, look to invest in pieces that fit in with your home’s aesthetic and color scheme, whether that’s clean whites and grays for a modern home, or speckled blues and greens for a nature-inspired retreat.
“Ceramic artists today are creating pieces in just about every style, so it’s always possible to find something you’ll love,” shares Mason. “As for functionality, consider pottery that’s not only beautiful, but useful as well. Replace your store-bought soap dispenser with a handmade ceramic bottle, display your fruits in a uniquely glazed serving bowl, or even look to commission a pottery artist for a custom wheel-thrown dinnerware set that will look stunning on open shelving.”
