Deceptively simple pottery from Another Country, founded by Wallpaper alum Paul de Zwart. De Zwart's intention is to create “well-made, well-priced design with a modern craft heritage,” he says. The company launched with a line of contemporary craft furniture made from sustainable woods, and then expanded into pottery, candlesticks, and cushions.

Above: Designed by Ian McIntyre, the Another Pottery Jug is made of slip-cast terracotta fired to an unconventionally high temperature, which vitrifies the body of the clay and gives it the strength of stoneware (while also achieving a scorched color); £58 from David Mellor Design or from Makers & Brothers.
Above: Two standard-sized White Stoneware Bowls; £16 each from David Mellor Design.
