A person would be hard-pressed not to appreciate the work of Leah Ball. Specifically her ceramics, which she happened to stumble upon when turning towards the material to create displays for her original jewelry business. Soon they took a life of their own, moving away from her bronzed accessories in order to shine alone.
Based in Chicago, Illinois, Leah Ball is especially inspired by the ocean when creating her home goods. Born and raised in Carlsbad, California, "her aesthetics are based upon the patterns and rhythms of the Pacific coast, and her ceramic work has a distinctly oceanic vibe—a feel seen most evidently in her preferred colors and line work," reports Cool Hunting. They have an organic aesthetic as well, which many lovers of craftsmen will appreciate.
