Best Sweet Ceramics: SKT Ceramics

Artist Susannah Tisue is the maker behind local handcrafted pottery brand SKT Ceramics, a line of porcelain pieces — mugs, vases, dishes, teapots and more — featuring charming illustrations of plants, animals and the occasional bits of architecture. Tisue founded her studio in Brooklyn, New York in 2006 after spending time as a resident artist at Greenwich House Pottery. Now based out of Cincinnati, her one-of-a-kind pieces are made of English porcelain and are either wheel-thrown or pressed and then screen-printed or hand-painted with Tisue’s original and whimsical line drawings. Each piece is then glazed and fired to create sturdy, rustic and food-safe works of daily art. Find a fuzzy bumblebee on a bud vase, a fox on a sake bottle or a grasshopper on a coffee mug — all coated in a calm, cool and signature celadon-colored glaze (other colors exist, too). Find SKT at Findlay Market Thursday through Sunday or at wholesalers like MiCA 12/v in Over-the-Rhine. SKT Ceramics, sktceramics.com.
