Handmade Tennessee: Porcelain Salt Bowls by Bean and Bailey
Bean and Bailey ceramics is a southern duo producing small-batch functional porcelain pots. Artists Jessica Bean and Anderson Bailey’s modern slip-cast ceramics address the needs for containing, serving, consuming, displaying, growing and showing. They use colored porcelain slip to construct both subtly organic forms, as well as faceted vessels inspired by natural crystals and gems. Their mutual interests in process and aesthetics have brought them together to create a product line of slip cast functional wares. Their raw porcelain salt bowls are featured in DIY Network's Blog Cabin 2015.
