Handmade Home-wares to Treasure

I have a real love for handmade home-wares.   I can spend hours in  op-shops scouring shelves for stoneware, glassware.   Sometimes I can get very lucky by finding the odd designer piece that has been over-looked by a stylist or collector.

Bison Australia, Dinosaur Designs and La Chamba Colombian cookware are my all time favourites.

If ever you are lucky enough to own a piece of the lovingly handmade Bison stoneware, make sure you hold on to it forever because these pieces are sure to be collector’s items.

Their colour palette is beautiful, certainly it has got to be part of the reason I am so drawn to Bison.  

Dinosaur Designs are an iconic Australian brand.  The bold and vibrant colours are so gorgeous it’s hard to pick out a favourite.  

It was instant love for this Colombian black clay cookware when I saw Nigella Lawson using it on one of her shows.  I was hooked, I couldn’t get it out of my head.  Turns out La Chamba cookware is handmade in Colombia and thanks to the internet, I can buy it online, but it is also widely available in good kitchenware stores.

Has anyone else been lucky enough to find an exceptional piece of home-wares in an op-shop or flea-market?
