Do you love handcrafted ceramics? If so, you are in for a treat…
Last June, Mila, my niece Lily and I got stranded in Singapore because Mila had only 6-months left on her passport to enter Bali.
Luckily, I had some good friends living there and we ended up staying with them for a week until we received Mila’s New-Zealand passport.
During that time, my friend Sofia took me to a lovely home decoration shop where I spotted some really beautiful, handcrafted ceramics by Zakkia Homewares.
A Sydney-based studio founded by Swedish Sara Lundgren, Zakkia Homewares produces beautiful handcrafted ceramics and objects to love and cherish for a lifetime.
I fell hard for the two black ceramic pots (above on the right) and really pondered whether I should be backpacking for three weeks with ceramics in my bag.
In the end, common sense prevailed (for once!) and I just took a picture of the brand to look it up later.
Once back in Europe, I spent a lot more time on Zakkia Homewares website.
When I found out that our home in London was being photographed to feature in a magazine, I immediately thought of them to complement the recent rugs I put in the lounge and our bedroom and add warmth and textures to our home. The shape and matte finish of these ceramics have a lovely, soothing organic feeling.
I think initially they are sold to host small plants and succulents but I have been trying them around the house and they work beautifully against the walls of our tadelakt bathroom, or our bedroom with white floorboard.
The other ceramics I got are these beautiful stoneware dark grey jug and matching milk jug from H&M Home. So to make room for all these lovely goodies, I’m letting go of a few things on BODIEandFOUpreloved like this beautiful white carafe designed by Nelson Sepuvelda.
