MANILA, Philippines – I never thought I’d find myself in the ceramics rabbit hole until I tried out a pottery class for the first time by Tahanan Pottery Studio for an “artcation” package at I’M Hotel last October. Making a clay mug from scratch and seeing the end result – a wonky, quirky, and matte yellow mug – was more satisfying than I expected, and I’ve been on an Instagram ceramics shop binge since then.

As I add more and more rustic plates, bowls, serving plates, saucers, and coasters to my growing ceramics collection (with no signs of stopping), I realized that aside from function and form, there’s a certain beauty and uniqueness to each handcrafted piece or set, especially those with slight damages, chips, or imperfections. You’re never getting the same piece twice.
