The Shopkeepers shopping guide to the best ceramics makers and shops is a selection of 20 of our favorite products. Lovingly handmade and handcrafted, ceramics are always a great gift to give and receive. This roundup of some of our favorite ceramics is a mix of goods from independent shops that feature ceramics and from small makers with online shops. Many ceramic makers have online shops that only open when they have a new batch of goods. So be sure to sign up for their newsletter to know when their shops open. We love that shopping online still means we can support our favorite independent shops far and wide. These shops and makers are located the U.S., Ireland, France, U.K., Italy and Australia. This is just a small selection of the amazing ceramics available around the world. We love discovering new shops so if you have a favorite ceramicist or shop you would like us to know about share with us via button below.
