Trunkt is such a great source for wonderful designs! These ceramic bowls and vases are by dbOHome. Dana Brandwein Oates is the founder of dbOHome and she designs and creates all the pottery herself. Dana’s story of how she started her business is inspiring, she says: “After years of collecting, snipping swatches, pulling out clippings, painting and re-painting, touching and feeling everything in every home store in NYC, I decided it was time for me to start creating.” dbO Home was born from Dana’s desire to make things. Handmade things that add something special to your home to give it your own personal style. So dbOHome offers handmade, hand glazed one-of-a-kind ceramic home accessories all thrown, built or caste in Dana’s home studio in Litchfield County, Connecticut. And yes, these vases, bowls, plates will add something uniquely yours to your home.
I can so much relate to Dana’s story… when I lived in NYC, this city did the same thing for me… wandering the streets of tribeca and meat packers district in 2000, being overwhelmed by inspiration and trying to make sense of all crazy new ideas in my head… I decided it was finally time to go in the direction of my dreams and do my own thing…at that time it wasn’t exactly clear what that ‘thing’ would be, but it was clear that it would be something that had to do with crafts and design…so I guess Bloesem was also born in NYC…every day it gives me a special feeling to be linked to my favorite neighborhoods and stores in this beautiful city through Bloesem… and hopefully I will return one day with my family… most of all, I love what I do and hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
