This Popular Pottery Brand Is Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary with Two Dreamy New Pieces for the Breakfast Table
Of all the little luxuries you can add to your kitchen, handcrafted pieces of pottery might top the list. After all, whether you’re enjoying your morning coffee or entertaining at a dinner party, what’s better than adorning your table with exquisite, one-of-a-kind pieces? That’s why we’re big fans of North Carolina-based ceramics studio Haand, which is known for its elegant bowls, plates, mugs, and more made with durable, heirloom-quality porcelain in a variety of beautiful glazes.
In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, Haand is introducing new items to its inventory, starting with the expansion of one of the brand’s most popular lines, Cloudware. This dreamy motif shows off deep blue and white swirls inspired by the North Carolina summer sky. And now Cloudware fans (and newbies) can add the Tapered Mug and the Cirrus Vase to the breakfast table.
Haand crafts drinkware in a variety of thoughtful shapes, like the Short Mug, which is designed with a low center of gravity for sturdiness. The brand new Tapered Mug features a more traditional design, but still with a few of Haand’s signature touches. Most notably, it includes “a slightly wonky, wavery rim,” as well as a handle that’s strong yet lightweight. The tapered shape is intended to keep your coffee or tea hotter for longer, so we see this mug as especially ideal for lazy Sunday mornings. Coming in at just over 4″ tall, each mug can hold 10 ounces of liquid, perfect for a regular-sized cup of coffee. And because of the freeform method with which Haand blends the two colors for this line, no two pieces are the same, just like clouds floating in the sky. Pick up multiple mugs for a gorgeous display on your shelf that’ll look and feel uniquely like the real thing.
In addition to the Tapered Mug, Haand also added the Cirrus Vase to the Cloudware line. It’s a petite vase designed to really show off the Cloudware shape, as the blended colors work with the rounded base. Inspired by the shape of a chiminea, it can double as a carafe thanks to a clear-glaze-lined interior. Place it as the centerpiece of your table, rest it on a windowsill, or use it for serving at your next gathering.
If these two new pieces already have you excited, then you’ll also want to check out the new glazes that Haand has launched as part of their anniversary, too. A handful of pieces are now available in the new Vespertine, a deep blue akin to the dark depths of the ocean or night sky, and Turmeric, a rich sunshine yellow that looks like a just-picked buttercup.
