RachaelPots – Afternoon Light
Ceramicist Rachael Scharf believes that a piece of pottery is most beautiful when it achieves its optimal functionality. This is the philosophy that grounds RachaelPots, a Brooklyn-based ceramics company that offers thoughtfully crafted, thoroughly useful goods to bring ease to the home. Their kitchen line provides unique pieces that you didn’t know you needed (but won’t be able to live without), like garlic scrapers, salad dressers, and berry bowls, and her vases and planters make a strong case for the beauty of simple aesthetics. Each meticulously handmade product is thrown on a potter's wheel, a traditional technique that Rachael picked up while studying in Florence, Italy.

ITEM WE LOVE

There is nothing so satisfying as sitting down at a table with a loved one to spill tea and enjoy each other's company over a bowl of grapes or berries. Fingers plucking at fruits between conversational gesticulating, a plastic or metal colander can do this moment no justice. Elevate the moment with a handmade beauty that does its job well and is as pleasingly tactile as the bounty it holds.
