We don’t much care for the trend of ceramics shaped like body parts—with one exception. Lately we’ve noticed faces, cast in ceramic and glass, peeking out from dark corners, and heads stashed unceremoniously on shelves. It’s a look just eerie enough for our taste: part death mask, part Pablo Picasso’s visage vases. Here are a handful of favorite face vases and head-shaped pots, suitable for Halloween and beyond.
N.B.: Michelle has been coveting another face vase over on Gardenista this week, painted with the haunting face of an opera singer. See more in Object of Desire: A Vase with a Famous Face.
