Pretty in Porcelain: Alix D. Reynis in Paris

A self-taught ceramicist working in porcelain (she calls the material “noble, pure, and demanding”), Alix D. Reynis designs her wares in Paris and makes them by hand in Limoges. They’re some of the prettiest pottery items we’ve seen in a while.

Above: The Portable Star Lighting Pendant at La Maison Poétique, a Bordeaux boutique. It has a twisted cloth cord and can be hung anywhere.
