Most people can’t resist buying adorable new mugs every time they stumble across them at Target or Pottery Barn. If ceramic pieces available at the regular home décor stores aren’t up to your high standards, Ende Ceramics will be your cup of tea.
Natalia Gruszecka and Jakub Kwarciński, who studied ceramic design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland, started this brand. Their Etsy shop is filled with all sorts of different porcelain pieces, including vases and figurines, but cups and mugs are really their specialty.
What makes their creations so unique and instantly recognizable are their distinctive cup handles. They’re curved, double rimmed, or shaped as infinity signs, and there’s something truly whimsical about each one. Some of the cups are also uniquely shaped and feature quirky and fun illustrations.
Ende Ceramics pride themselves in creating “everyday objects that combine functionality, original aesthetic form, and high-quality luxury materials.” They’re characterized by a surprising combination of a modern form, traditional design, and attention to detail.
