The porcelain housewares created by Emily Reinhardt, an industrial designer based in Omaha, Nebraska, are utterly gorgeous. Since she considers modern heirlooms and treasures, it is only natural that they would have such a timeless appeal. Granted, some of the patterns and silhouettes are easily dated to today's generation, such as the polkadots and geometric angles, yet overall Emily Reinhardt focuses on organic hues and forms that would complement many homes.

Working under the alias The Object Enthusiast, Emily Reinhardt strikes a fine balance between imperfections and finished products. She reveals, "It’s a style of throwing that embraces the imperfections, and so I decided to take that a little further, and I started cutting pieces out of the walls intentionally with a knife. It happens really organically, and that’s exactly what I love about creating." Stats for Chic Ceramic Housewares Trending: Older & Chilly
