This weekend at the BUST Craftacular, you can ward off the blue Mondays with Mondays handmade ceramics! Brooklyn artists Jennifer Flore, Nina Lalli, and Signe Yberg create beautiful handmade ceramics for use and display. Each piece is a work of art, and no two are the same. Mondays creates bowls, cups, dishes, platters, planters, vases, and more. I’m loving their Green Bubble Plates, Triangle Vases, Confetti Cups, and Small Shell Bowl (all pictured here). Come see Mondays at the BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire on Saturday, September 29 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Read More
