Hanker Time: TheLuLuBird Pottery

“I have a personal theory that everything you need to know about life you can learn from working with clay.” – Liz Aldag, The LuLu Bird Pottery

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this pottery and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I grew up near a huge pottery mecca in Seagrove, North Carolina and many Saturday mornings were spent helping my mom pick out gifts from the local stores. Pottery always seemed outdated until recently when I spotted The LuLu Bird Pottery.

Ceramic Cloud Serving Bowl, $34

The artist, Liz Aldag, is based out of Durham. I love everything about her collection collection- the colors, the shapes, the sizes, and the variety of pieces. I also love how functional each piece is. The cloud bowl would be perfect for serving up popcorn and the mugs below make me crave a cup of hot chocolate.

Black Mountain Planter, $40 

And these planters- they are my pottery soulmate. I want to fill up every windowsill in my house with these beauties. I’d definitely wash the dishes sooner if I could look at these while I scrubbed.
