Good Goods: Shallows


This vase is sloped downward at the top, forming a shallow. When filled the surface tension creates a beautiful glassy dome with a plant protruding from the center. The vase is available from Port and was designed by Critiba.

Good Goods: Textured Bowl


Picked up this little bowl from West Elm while in neighborhood doing some errands.

Curiosities: Robert Hessler



I did a little reading on the Still House blog when I was posting last week’s Good Goods, and came across these beautiful porcelain vases by Robert Hessler. This is not your typical porcelain. Robert works with zinc based glazes that form crystals when they are slowly cooled. He adds different amounts of cobalt, zinc, iron silver, and tin oxides that result in a unique pattern every time. These two at Still House are among my favorites, but he has a large collection and a wide variety of colors and shapes on his site. (ᔥ Still House Blog)

Good Goods: Matchbook


We picked up this matchbook a few years ago in a shop in Boston. The packaging had a site listed, and it took me to a really fun French site with other games, gifts, and goods. I don’t think you can actually purchase in the US unless you plan on spending over 300 Euros. but it looks like they sell them over at P!Q. Their US distributer (wholesale) is The Sarut Group. ※ photograph by dc
