:: Lapid Love




My Latest find........ Lapid, Israel.
There hand painted and have a simple modernist aesthetic.

 It's a lovely indigo blue under glaze, on a creamy mottled clay body.

Something strange is going on with my succulent....waving 

 It's been painted by STEEF, imagine him or her sitting in the heat, brush in hand?

Ray from Retro Pottery Net has a number of posts with insightful info and lots of eye candy images, if you'd like to know more! :)
Don't forget to say hello!



And if your reading this Ray......... was $13.00 a bargain? :)

I came across this enamel sign at a car boot sale, the colours are amazing, as is the cordial may I add!

I'm not usually into signs but who could resist!
It's an approved reprint by Dodo Designs, Kent, UK.

  1. Hi Pippa....What a great piece, I have had a few in that shape and pattern, but not in blue...lovely... The Lapid variations never cease to amaze, and for $13!. Lapid still remains surprisingly unknown/undervalued...but all the better for us to buy.....Thanks for the mention too! :) Ray.

  3. Love your Lapid Pippa, simple and beautiful.

    Are you going to hang your sign? maybe you could hang it in your garden if it's not really your thing? Great colours.

    Hello back (to your succulent) x

  8. I have not run across the Lapid bottle things. Super nice shape. Reminds me of lapis lazuli in the color... Maybe? The sign is very nice. Dana is right, Rose's lime juice is quite smooth.
