In my ongoing quest to feather my nest with all things delicate, white, and ceramic, I have stumbled upon an Atlanta-based artist who has stolen both my heart and my self-admittedly snobbish discerning eye. Meet Honeycomb Studio, which specializes in 'small scale porcelain sculptures'. Ever since I added this sweet copper-ringed apothecary bottle to my knickknack shelf, I have a serious 'collect them all!' situation on my hands.
The thing is, I wasn't going to pull the trigger; I've been curbing my spending of late. Instead, I tweeted about that polka dot charmer to get the urge out of my system. I didn't tag the shop in my tweet—yet Honeycomb sculptor still Courtney responded. After several back-and-forths about the wonders of the Internet, I was sold. Now I felt compelled to support Courtney and her art.
In addition to the porcelain bottles I plan to amass like the grown-up version of Happy Meal toys, Honeycomb Studio also casts these antlers from horns that have fallen in the woods during the animals' natural shedding process. As Courtney explains, they bring the 'architectural element of a deer antler into your home without the taxidermy “ick factor”'. Plus that metallic accent? It's the extra special touch that marks everything Honeycomb does. And that, my friends, is how you justify shopping addiction artist patronage!
