Handmade goods are the best kind of goods. I’m always trying new things and taking new classes (yoga teacher training, cooking classes, you name it, I’ve probably tried it), so it comes as no surprise that next up on my wish list is trying wheel thrown pottery.
Maybe it was that iconic scene from Ghost with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore that instilled in me this love for pottery making, but I really can’t help but love the messiness of the art. So when I discovered the Instagram account, @tortus_copenhagen by Eric Landon, I became totally enthralled and literally liked every picture and video. Not only is it mesmerizing to watch these creations come to life, but the pottery itself is truly beautiful. Thin vases of all different shapes, sizes and colors — totally dreaming of having them all over my apartment one day.
Perhaps I’ll make a visit to the studio when I visit Norway this summer.. a girl can dream, right? Well, in the meantime, do you know of any authentic wheel throwing ceramic places to go to in NYC?
