Artist Feature: Honest Works Island Pottery

Today I wanted to share some very beautiful pieces of pottery created by Kelly at Honest Works Island Pottery.

Palm Tree Vase

What strikes me about this work is the mix of beautiful colors and patterns.  I've taken a ceramics class before and my pieces looked nowhere near as good as these.  Absolutely stunning.

Rooster Mugs

A lot of the pieces are nature inspired and Kelly says that, "Inspiration is all around! It's the simple things in life. The blue sky, the rolling clouds, the aqua waters, island palms, Everglade wildlife, birds in flight...the colors of nature and vibrancy of life."

Cookie Jar

See more work in her shop and blog.


  1. Ceramics is not one of my areas of expertise either, but I love admiring good quality pieces. I agree that her pieces have a beautiful mix of colors and patterns.

  2. Gorgeous! Lovely vibrant colors>

  3. I love everything made from ceramics, especially coasters and necklace pendant. That rooster mugs are extremely amazing. I wish this is my area of expertise..
