Lauren Denney handmade ceramicsHandmade ceramic wall art by Lauren Denney

The close up photo of this wall art looks like dainty biscuits on a baking tray, but they’re actually porcelain buttons and not the slightest bit edible at all!

Created by Lauren Denney, this unusual piece of wall art looks effective in its monotone colours and features 24 handmade white porcelain buttons on a black background. The picture comes framed and ready to be hung on a wall.

You can buy the porcelain button wall art picture from Lauren Denney’s store; whilst there, it’s worth checking out her other handmade ceramic homeware creations too.

Funky ceramic sink tidyModern sink tidy for a contemporary home

This looks like a yellow rubber glove discarded by the sink after doing the washing up, but it’s actually a ceramic sink tidy!

This quirky item has been cleverly created by designer Helen Johannessen, from Yoyo Ceramics, and looks exactly like the infamous Marigold’s. It’s got all the details and creases of the real thing, as if it’s just been taken off.

Placed by the sink, the ceramic rubber glove would be a useful place to store your scourer, plug or dish cloth and it’s sure to fool people.

It costs £22 and can be purchased from Yoyo Ceramics.

If you like the quirkiness of this design, then some  similar items we’ve featured before include the glass plastic bag bowl, the porcelain flour bag container, the porcelain carton milk jug and the tin can storage jar.

White china crisp snack bowlChina sweet dish for entertaining

These unusual illustrated bowls are part of the tableware collection by designer Martha Mitchell, a graduate from Nottingham Trent University.

Her unique ceramic collection features black and white illustrations from popular everyday food products on china bowls and other products. On the crisp bowl, for example, you’ll find tiny images of well known crisp packets, such as Wotsits, French Fries and Monster Munch.

On the sweet bowl, there are cute little images of sweet packets, such as Cadbury Eclairs, Pick ‘n’ Mix, Haribo Strawbs, Werthers Originals and Maoam Stripes.

All of the illustrations are applied by hand, so each piece is unique. The illustrated crisp bowl and illustrated sweet bowl are £12 each and would be perfect to use for Christmas entertaining or party nibbles.

There are lots more products in the range too that are worth a look, including a nice egg cup, mug and cake stand. All the illustrated products are available from Martha Mitchell Design’s online store.
