Samples, Seconds & Surprises!

Nov 7, 2008

We were excited to stumble upon the etsy shop of one our favorite Brooklyn ceramic designers, Lorena Barrezueta. We've long admired her take-away container inspired Gourmet Collection, so we were delighted to see the deals at her Samples, Seconds, and Surprises etsy shop.

We first spotted Lorena's work at The Future Perfect. The process of creating the dishes is all hand-done and extremely labor intensive. We love how texture is only on the inside of the dish, while the smooth outside gives it a polished look. In fact, Lorena developed the method of casting the dishes through trial and error, even after being told that it was impossible.

All of the styles above, and many more are available at Lorena's etsy shop. To see the full-range of colors, visit Lorena's website, where you can place orders with her directly (for the full-price dishes).

(A little off-topic for AT, but be sure to check out her new collection of ceramic jewelry. Love it!)
