What Are the New Status Ceramics (That Aren’t Heath)?

A BZippy Co. vase

There are two ways to think about status ceramics, really. Ceramics that you use daily, like dinnerware, and ceramics that sit on a credenza as art objet, never to be touched; except, perhaps, by a few peony stems. For this piece, we set out to find the ceramicists who are walking the line between both, designing and throwing pieces that you won’t be afraid to touch and use, but that still ignite some awe and respect — the new status ceramics.

There’s one thing to get out of the way first, which is that we’re looking for the successor to Heath Ceramics, the California company founded in 1948 that has managed to monopolize the ceramic dinnerware scene. They’re the wished-for — and widely known — ceramics of tasteful people everywhere, from NoHo to Silver Lake. “They’re beautiful and gorgeous, but they’re the default wedding registry dishes,” says Monica Khemsurov, cofounder of the design blog Sight Unseen. The same goes for Group Partner, which makes that boobs planter that you’ve surely seen everywhere. To find what comes next for the more discerning ceramics-lover, we spoke with ceramicists and shop owners and scoured the coolest homewares shops to learn more about who are the ceramicists to know and buy, right now.

We considered Cody Hoyt’s ceramic vases (they go for $5,400) and Matthew Ward’s painstakingly glazed bowls ($545), but they felt too fine-art and exclusive. Of course you’d have to be in-the-know in the ceramics world to have heard about these guys, but you’d also have to follow the art world to get your hands on them. The same is true with Giselle Hicks, who has nearly 13,000 Instagram followers, but whose work isn’t readily available for purchase.

A group of works by Giselle Hicks

So we set out to find the status ceramic that is accessible and usable, but also requires a little in-the-know knowledge. A ceramicist that a group of like-minded ceramic-lovers will recognize as of-the-moment and special, while still not being something you’d need fine-art investor money to afford. Here’s what we found.


Her name is Bari Ziperstein, her line is BZippy Co., and everyone we spoke with mentioned her work. She’s based in Los Angeles, but her playful, colorful pieces have attracted attention around the country. The interior designer Kelly Wearstler has used them as accent pieces in her recent projects. The style-defining shops Ten Over Six, Oroboro, Dream Collective, Egg Collective, Mociun, and Coming Soon all carry BZippy. Herman Miller decorates with BZippy in its showrooms, as does J. Crew. She is universally accepted as what’s hot now. “She’s become very iconic for her shapes, colors, and glazes,” says Fabiana Faria, co-owner of Coming Soon. Owning a BZippy means entering a world of the ceramic elite.


This BZippy vase is actually a two-for-one. Pull up the top, flip it over, and you have two vases to use side by side.


If you’re ready to dive in and fully commit to a BZippy original, this vase is a great encapsulation of the way she plays with bright colors and strong shapes.



The true Workaday status item, though, would have to be one of his stools or tables. Ceramic furniture, far more rare than any tabletop ceramics, show a real commitment to the material.


And in that ceramics-as-furniture vein, there’s also Natalie Weinberger. Her tabletop work is sold at the Primary Essentials, among other homewares stores, and she was also just in an all-women New York Design Month show at the Egg Collective, where she showed her all-clay lamps, shade included, “That was one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while in ceramics,” says Khemsurov, who’s definitely seen the most in ceramics.


As for Weinberger’s other work, Khemsurov explains, “It’s understated, which is why cool girls like them. They’re easy to fit into décor. The shapes are sleek, but the finishes are a bit more rustic. So they have that beige-y hipster thing with perfect shadows cast by your trendy plants.”


As for dinner plates and registry dishes besides Heath, there’s East Fork, which uses colors that Khemsurov calls, “a bit more adventurous.” The North Carolina-based brand just revealed a new collection in May at the West Village boutique Calliope during NYC x Design.


Over at the Strategist we’re huge fans of Hasami’s Japanese porcelain plates, because of this gorgeous glossy gray-blue color and the perfect lip, so no food slides off the edges. Theirs is also the only dinnerware sold at Totokaelo, so it counts as “directional” dinnerware.


To go back to Instagram-famous ceramicists doing hand-thrown work for a moment, Helen Levi, with 171,000 followers, has reached peak Brooklyn-based young ceramicist, but her work isn’t quite everywhere enough to be overused yet. Her signature look is as if you put a bunch of color dyes in a bathtub, swirled it around, and dipped some serving bowls and mugs in it.


And here’s a carafe, which we at the Strategist, as big fans, have written about before.


And then there’s Natalie Herrera, whose work is more exacting and precise than what you’d normally find thrown on a wheel. She works a day job at the creative studio RoAndCo and opened up her ceramics shop High Gloss as a side project. The thing is that Natalie doesn’t regularly come out with new items, so you’ll find most pieces on her website sold out, and the moment she comes out with new ones, they sell out again. Buyers must be on their toes to pick up a Herrera original.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best women’s jeans, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, ultra-flattering pants, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.

Every editorial product is independently selected. If you buy something through our links, New York may earn an affiliate commission.

Orangeburg bakery a favorite of Rosie, Gov. Cuomo’s mom

CLOSE

Nanuet Restaurant re-opens with an event hosted by lohud.com’s Jeanne Muchnick, the food and dining writer.
Mark Vergari, mvergari@lohud.com

Rosie O’Donnell is an Aunt Mia’s fan. So, too, is Matilda Cuomo.

And Maria Caputo, the owner and sole baker behind the Orangeburg bake shop, still can’t believe her good fortune. After all, her journey to owning her own place started with a bet she made with her husband more than eight years ago.

At the time she was working as an office manager — a job she held for 25 years — when she bet him she could make black and white cookies as good as the deli down the street.

NANUET RESTAURANT REOPENS: And yes, the pizza’s the same

STRAWBERRY FIELDS: Where to pick your own strawberries

It took her three months but the Montebello resident, whose nieces and nephews always referred to her as “Aunt Mia,” soon perfected the recipe. Not long after, she was baking for family and friends who insisted she do something more with her self-taught talents. That led to additional recipes and cookies — all of which are made without preservatives and in bite-sized portions.

Eventually, she quit her job to devote herself full-time to baking. When it got too hard to bake the quantities she needed at home, she turned to Eva’s Catering in Pearl River, who gave her kitchen space. She was there two years before opening her own shop in 2012.

“I literally googled how to open a bakery,” she said. “And then I called the Board of Health, because that’s what it told me to do.” 

 

She’s since rebranded her business to reflect the locally made gifts she sells in the front, changing the name from Aunt Mia’s Gourmet Cookie Shoppe to Aunt Mia’s Gourmet Cookie and Gift Shoppe. Selling local wares — everything from barbecue sauce made in Pearl River (Smokey ‘Burbs) to honey made in Palisades (Lomar Farms) to bracelets, mugs, dishtowels, and other kitchen accessories is important to her.

“It’s my way of giving back,” she said. “I think it’s important to give local artisans a showcase and to give area residents a place to find them all in one space.”

She also recently renovated, moving up the counters so she has more room in the back to bake. And, thanks to a new edible printer, she can put logos and other designs on cupcakes, cookies and cakes.

Also new for spring — and what drove O’Donnell’s chef in the door — are Caputo’s hamburger cupcakes, a vanilla cupcake with brownie “hamburger,” “cheese” made of fondant and buttercream “ketchup” and “mustard.” They are doing so well, she’s considering a “cake taco” version.

She’s also doing cookie pops — a great shower favor — and cookie pies with a crust made of cookies. Available options include apple crumb, blueberry crumb and brownie caramel with pumpkin and pumpkin cheesecake planned for fall.

Caputo also recently introduced her own homemade Oreo cookie. “It doesn’t have a name yet because we can’t call it Oreo,” she said.

In all, she offers over 45 cookie varieties as well as various versions of cupcakes, brownies and cakes. 

Her bite-size black and white cookie, one of her first creations, remains among her top sellers. Also up there: her trademarked Grahamello, a s’mores-like cookie made with a graham cracker cookie, with marshmallow and dipped in chocolate. And she does cookie sandwiches, two chocolate chip cookies with a layer of buttercream studded with sprinkles in between.

Along with her Orangeburg bake shop, customers can find her chocolate chip cookies at Defiant Brewing in Pearl River and her cookie pies at Bailey’s Smokehouse in Blauvelt.
