Alyssa Ettinger has been making pottery since she was 14, and has a range of dinnerware and jars. Priced from $25, alongside the normal products, are a selection of sample and ‘seconds’ (meaning that they weren’t perfect enough to be a ‘first’ sold in her actual store) vases, bowls, cups from her collection are available for half their normal price on Etsy.
This lantern is from Alyssa’s ‘Glow’ collection, and is hand cast porcelain made from the mold of an antique jar. It can be used indoors, but has a wire so it can be hung up – they would be dazzling as a decoration at a romantic garden reception – just imagine them hanging in the garden after the sun goes down on a summer night. Priced at $90 for an identical set of two, they would also make a great wedding gift if you’re after ideas!
