Fired Up Add the perfect touch to your Thanksgiving table.

By Kimberly Uslin


This November, we’re giving thanks for this striking vase by Chicago-born potter Debra Oliva. The black wheel-thrown stoneware stuns with pops of autumnal color and charming sketched shapes, perfect for a starring spot as the centerpiece on your Thanksgiving table. Fill it with fall blooms or allow the special conversation-starting vessel to stand alone—either way, your guests will gush. Looking for your next of kiln? Oliva—who says her favorite work is that which “beg[s] to live outside the cupboard”—has an entire functional/fine art collection of similarly hued works from teapots to tumblers, each etched, glazed and fired by the artist herself. Knead we say more? Available at Baltimore Clayworks. $130,
