Sophia Keys of Apricity Ceramics makes dirt pretty, or at least that’s what she’ll tell you. From her Atlanta, Ga studio Sophia hand throws or slab forms each piece of porcelain clay to create functional pottery for everyday luxury. No two pieces are exactly alike, and that’s the point.
Sophia’s philosophy is to use the good stuff everyday. She wants her customers to love her pieces and use them daily, even if they’re tempted to save them for special occasions.
Currently, Apricity Ceramics offers two tabletop and accessories collections, the Drops Of Honey and the Dew Collections.
The Drops Of Honey Collection, featuring a two-toned beige and white glossy glaze is highlighted with a variety of 22k gold bees and gold luster “honey drops”. This line includes trinket dishes, ring cones, full dinner sets, vases, honey pots, and mugs: perfect for garden lunches and tea parties.
The Dew Collection is her answer to an everyday line, great for all seasons and family gatherings. It includes trinket dishes, ring cones, full dinner sets, vases, bowls, and mugs. This line is available in a variety of colors and can be further highlighted by a rim of 22k gold luster.
Whether putting fresh wildflowers in a Dew vase or drinking that first sip of coffee from a Drops Of Honey mug, both collections were created to invoke Apricity: the feeling of warmth on a winter’s day.
