I adore polka dots. Always have. I don't know why, but I do. Some of my favorite dresses over the years have been polka dotted. I think they are fun and whimsical, and they always make me happy.
Imagine how delighted I was when I came across a shop on etsy called Polka Dot Clay Studio! How could a girl not love that? And when you look at this wonderfully whimsical pottery you will understand exactly what I mean.
Karen Hansen, the artist behind Polka Dot Clay Studio, makes really imaginative ceramic vessels. These are NOT your grandma's flower vase, for sure! Each piece is a really unique piece of art. I love the out-of-the-ordinary shapes she chooses, and of course, the polka dots reel me in, big time. She has a really terrific sense of color as well.
I have not yet purchased a piece from Karen, but I have my eye on a few, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of them showed up on my doorstep in the future.
Here is a sampling of Karen's work. Be sure to go to her shop and check out her complete collection. You will not be sorry!
(THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE! I think it's the daisy that makes me swoon!)
I really love all of Karen's work. I hope you will take a minute to browse her shop. It will certainly bring a smile to your day!
If you have a favorite artist on etsy, I would love to know about it. I'm always on the hunt for unique talent!
Have a great day!
