You Heard It Here First: Every Cool Girl Is Buying This Home Accessory

Interior designer Orlando Soria was the first to confirm our sneaking suspicion that pottery was making a major comeback this year. It's not that handmade pottery is particularly innovative, but the influx of cool young ceramicists to hit the design scene in recent years has created a shift in our decorating vernacular. What we once considered to be our grandma's old tchotchkes are now trendy again—and it seems like everyone is jumping on board.

Soria isn't the only one adopting pottery in his designs. Stylist Emily Henderson loves including handmade ceramics in her vignettes: "I always try to support local artists, and I have a growing collection of handmade ceramics," she told us. So the question remains: Where do we find these elusive new potters? We scoured Tictail, a marketplace for up-and-coming designers, and we weren't disappointed. Click through our favorite pottery finds and give your home instant cool-girl status.
