Currently coveting: unglazed organic porcelain vases by Portuguese ceramicist Paula Valentim of Otchipotchi, molded from natural stones.

Valentim was a librarian in London, until she “reviewed life and turned direction,” as she says, and took up ceramics. Today, she works out of her home in a small Portuguese town.

Above: The Small Table Vase measures 2 inches wide; €12.50 each.

Above: The Wall Vase is about 4 inches tall; €12.50 each.

Above: The vases are perfect for displaying delicate arrangements.
