Our (ever-growing) list of Black-owned businesses has no shortage of homeware stores and makers to shop. To better spotlight some of the many things these companies offer, we picked through their inventories in search of ceramics that can instantly freshen up any room in your home while also serving as functional décor. From minimal vases for your bodega flowers to handmade trays for displaying knickknacks to cheery mugs that’ll add some joy to your morning coffee (or tea) routine, read on for our favorite ceramic pieces from Black-owned businesses. (A note that while not all are made by Black artisans, all are sold by Black-owned entities.)

Goodee, an online shop founded by twins Byron and Dexter Peart, focuses on curating products from sustainably minded artisans and brands. Among them is this four-legged anthropomorphic tray designed by Sebastian Herkner for Ames. According to Goodee, the tray — which comes in both black and red finishes — is handcrafted in Colombia’s Tolima region and is inspired by the pottery exhibits at Bogotá’s Museo de Oro.
