colorful awesomeness

i was browsing for a wedding gift for my swedish sister-in-law on etsy (where else?) and i came across the most awesome shop that i simply must share with you.  it's called atelierBB and it is the home of the wobbly plates. these are the coolest thing to happen to ceramics since, well, since ceramics began, if you ask me.

check out these gorgeous bowls:


i want one two ten of each! in every color. because color makes me happy. but, of course, i'm not shopping for me, i'm shopping for my sister-in-law and my brother-in-law-to-be.  their home is all black & white and grey, so i've ordered some gorgeous reds for them (this may be because i love red myself, but still, it goes well with b&w, right?).  i ordered some of these (tho' both will be red) and a few of the above bowls:


the artist, brigitte bouquet, is from the netherlands, but has lived all over the world. i learned that here, on her website. and knowing my thing with eyeballs at the moment, how could i not love her when she did an artwork like this in sydney...


sigh....when my new job starts, i'm so ordering some of this stuff for us. it's wonderful! ok, and maybe i did order a few dessert plates already. since we were already packing things up. i'm weak in the face of gorgeous colors, what can i say? go, order something from brigitte already, i'm certain you won't regret it!

Did you see these on What Possessed Me? Those colors! Unforgettable.

They would make a perfect wedding gift; they are just so inherently joyous.

I think Etsy is dangerous.
