Our favorite dishes are usually the ones with a lot of color and a little spunk, so naturally, we're loving the whimsical pieces from Chicago's Circa Ceramics.
Duo Andy Witt and Nancy Pizarro create their wares in a Ravenswood studio, drawing inspiration from restaurants, coffee houses, commercial tableware and how people use these pieces.
Bowls and mugs range from $20 to $100. They also offer made-to-order three-piece place settings ($145) that include a 16-ounce bowl, a lo bowl and a plate.
In Chicago, check them out at ArtWalkRavenswood on October 4 and 5. Their products are available at several stores nationwide (listed on their web site) and through their Etsy store.
