Last week, I popped into one of my favorite shops, Young Blood Gallery and Boutique in Atlanta and co-owner, Rebecca Hanna pointed out a rather lovely new addition to their shop- ceramics by Bean & Bailey.
I was instantly smitten with their small bud vases, which are modern yet playful - so perfect for displaying a pretty stem or bloom.
Jessie Bean and Anderson Bailey are the creatives behind Bean & Bailey. Together, in a small studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee, they craft contemporary ceramics. As stated on their site, "We use colored porcelain slip to construct both subtly organic forms as well as faceted vessels inspired by natural crystals and gems."
Inside Jesse and Anderson's shop you'll find a variety of vases, cups and bowls to choose from. As the pair are constantly playing with new colors and styles, it's fun to check in to see what has inspired them lately...
These Matte Cups are the prettiest of colors and textures. To achieve this look, the inside of the cup is coated in a clear glaze with the outside left unglazed to show off the raw clay body. At $20 each, they are also dishwasher and microwave safe.
These last cups are actually a whiskey set. They are just under 3" high and are made to sit upon a wooden tray for serving and displaying. This is such a fantastic, original gift for the whiskey lover and it reminds me of how nice it is to discover a shop such as Bean & Bailey that's filled with quality goods for the home that are both thoughtful and functional- plus, unlike anything I've ever seen before. See the entirety of Jesse and Anderson's ever expanding collection, here.
