pigtoeThe folks behind Portland, OR’s Pigeon Toe Ceramics are to be admired.  They seem to have a passion for what they do, and turn out some lovely products.  I mean you have to love a group of people who craft lovely objects with and aspiration to “provide mankind with everyday beauty.”

About Pigeon Toe Ceramics: “Pigeon Toe’s aspiration is simple: to provide mankind with everyday beauty. Highly curated and refined, each piece is culled from skilled hands, trained minds and inspired hearts. Founded in 2009, our studio exists in the heart of charming Industrial North Portland. Featuring artisan objects that transcend trends, each piece is an attempt to redefine a new age of homegrown, grassroots aesthetics. Our designs are naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully charming. Each piece is treasured. Beautiful. Authentically hand-crafted. Each object emanates enduring value.”

See?  Doesn’t Pigeon Toe Ceramics sound like just the type of enterprise you want to support?  They make some nice things for the home I like the simple yet elegant Dent Bud Vase and the pretty and practical notched bowl.
