Ceramic Loveliness from The Pursuits of Happiness

I totally resonate with April Brimer. After working digitally as a commercial photographer for years, she was craving something more analog.

In 2013, April caved and dove head-first into the world and possibilities of ceramics. Her darling line of ceramic housewares, jewelry and objects, The Pursuits of Happiness, are beautifully sculptural, and plenty whimsical. I

have my own set of plates and a ceramic necklace, and I love her work so much that this week you can enter to win $100 to spend at her online shop on whatever ceramic goody your heart desires! To enter, follow April’s Instagram and my Instagram, and like and comment on this photo, and to increase your chances, complete the contest widget at the bottom of this post (contest now closed).
