Caroline Reehl Ceramics

Allow me to introduce you to this beautiful hand-made pottery line, dancing out of Birmingham, Alabama. All of these pieces are made by Caroline Reehl, an Alabama native and full-time potter (and style lover). A Fine Arts major at Mississippi, she's strongly influenced by her Southern roots, and especially by the strong women that she sees around her. She uses the flowers (roses and lillies-my faves) as metaphors for both inner strength and external beauty and light. There is a lovely optimism and, indeed, femininity to her work. I love the piece above, it reminds me of a living rose bush creeping into unintended spaces over time. But I was also really taken by the "golden roses" directly below; the gold is such a shock-a very strong statement on the white canvas of the vase and other flowers. Really beautiful and unique. Visit Caroline's website for more background, but I would also highly reccomend both her blog for a fun perspective into Caroline's style as well as the Facebook page for more pictures of her most recent work. Charlotte's in Raleigh will be having a trunk show of her full collection in April (April 26 & 27) so stay tuned for more on that!
