My favorite ceramics // Flying Tiger – a budget friendly option
Flying Tiger // Bowls – large 40 DKK, medium 25 DKK, small 15 DKK // Mug 20 DKK
Evening lovelies! It is time to talk about one of my newer obsessions – ceramics! Being a foodblogger for more than 3 years now means that I have quite the collection of props, but it was actually only after the shoot for my first cookbook earlier this year that I really got into ceramics. I will gladly admit that most of my plates, bowls etc. up until then was mostly from IKEA and I honestly didn’t think much of it. I was much more focused on the food itself and maybe adding couple of cute props like wooden cutlery or a pretty fabric napkin.
However, during the shoot I really got to see how much of a difference nice ceramics can make in a photo and also just how beautiful ceramics really can be. I mean the beautiful handmade KH Wurtz pieces that A Table Story so kindly lent me for the shoot are simply small pieces of art and I cannot wait to add some of their amazing pieces to my ceramics collection!
They are quite pricey though (which is completely understandable as they are handmade right here in Denmark) and I wouldn’t be able to afford much more than a single plate or bowl at this point, so for now I would like to share these super affordable ceramics by Flying Tiger instead. They are not in any way handmade or of the same kind of quality, but I am so happy with them. They look amazing, are super affordable and on trend + they actually seem to be really sturdy and can go in the dishwater (a big plus, I hate doing dishes by hand).
The ceramics are available in the two colors shown in my photos and I think that I grabbed a bit of everything, there are bowls in three different sizes and a large mug + a smaller handlefree mug that I didn’t buy, but I think I’m going to go back for a couple of those + for more of the large mugs (perfect for my matcha lattes) and maybe an extra bowl or two – I mean at that price?! Yes please! I have heard that the collection is quite popular though, so you should probably hurry if you want to grab something.
I will do another post soon featuring more of my favorite ceramics, I managed to gather quite a collection before the cookbook shoot was over – as in I actually had to buy a new cabinet to store everything in! Yeah I probably went a bit overboard, but it is totally okay when it is work related right? ;)
What do you guys think of my new ceramics? And can you recommend some nice ceramics brands? I am always looking for new unique pieces to add to my collection – especially large serving dishes, they can be so hard to find.
