Starting our list off strong with an abstract marbled ceramic bottle. Bold Bear Studios was founded by Bernie Daroux, who has been working with clay since she was 14 years old. BBS is a Brooklyn-based ceramics studio with custom, unique pieces such as coffee pour-overs, mugs, and necklace pendants. Due to her marbling process each piece is different from one another, and all are finished off with gold lustre detailing. You can reach her directly on Instagram @boldbearstudio and DM her to purchase whichever custom piece suits your fancy.
A self-proclaimed “nasty woman from the Deep South”, Sarah Babin’s original art prints are made from handmade paper collages that are inspired by surrealism and vintage printed material. Due to her back ground as a performer and writer, each of her pieces tell a different story; believes that: “Art is a conversation. It is social. It is freeing.” Plant Things is also available as a 4x6 postcard that you can definitelly use as a framed print, or a custom collage you can create on your wall.

Ceramics and Theory
For ladies and gentlemen that have an expansive, and not-so-polite, vocabulary. We love multi-use items like cups to store pens and pencils, flowers, makeup, and makeup brushes. Ceramics and Theory founder Dustin Yager has been working in New York City since 2016, but has displayed his works all over the country in cities like Minneapolis and Chicago.
First and foremost, Zeynep Kilik would like to let everyone know her name is pronounced Zey like "hey" and Nep like "yep". Got it? Good. She just spent a year in Italy and has made it her mission to let anyone in the tri-state area know about it for the next decade or two. Other than that you can find her tearing up the West Village, yelling at hipsters in her heavy Brooklyn accent.
