From where I sit, there seems to be a growing population of young creative types embracing the medium of ceramics—not to call it a trend, but we seem to be developing something of a cult scene for it. Lisa Jones was one of the first ceramicists within the indie style scene (I first met her when she was involved at Souchi) to make a serious go of it with her Pigeon Toe collection, for which she recently announce the Fall/Winter 2013 collection (shades of the seasonal apparel world).

I've posted some of the new objects from the collection—which includes ceramic jewelry, too—over on MOD, as well.
