Kiss Arse Pottery


I do like a bit of fine china on my lips and I’m lucky that an ancestor owned a pottery so I have plenty of beautiful old china. (Check out the lampshade that I whipped up with my glue gun last night!) But sometimes I don’t want pretty china, I want china with attitude. I wouldn't mind sitting down with my ‘floozy’ cup for a spot of tea. In fact, all the pieces in this shop are covetable.

If you’re not keen on cups you might like this Artsy Fartsy mug.

These plates would be fun to use or they could be hung on the wall as an art piece.

Now there's something about tiny things and demitasse cups are no exception. These vintage cups are marked 'The Downtown Club' - conjuring up images of jazz, cigarettes and red wine.

You have just found me a new favourite shop on etsy. Trixie Delicious's shop is fantastic! I am in love with the seven deadly sins collection.

I'm loving the Floozy tea cup. There's something funny about such a delicate feminine activity having such a harsh word put on it.

I am on the hunt for a perfect vintage tea cup ... but i do like ones with a bit of sass. My old flatmate got me a mug that said 'keep your bush trimmed and neat' with a illustration of a rose bush on it ... ha

Very interesting selection of China indeed! Great fun! I love your lamp shade though best - pink and orange are one of my favourite colour combinations! Very pretty!

TheresaJ said...

Love both the artsy fartsy mug and the floozy cup, but the dip bowl had me in stitches.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comment regarding my pillows. Planning to make more... may start another Etsy shop for my non-jewelry items -- or perhaps an Artfire shop. Haven't decided yet.

Your lamp is fabulous!

Victoria said...

Great finds, but the lampshade is my favorite!

Nicole said...

Dear Chrisy, I am stopping by to thankyou for your kindness and sympathy during our tragic time. Whilst we still have funerals to go to and lives to adjust with the loss of a loved one... life is moving forward slowly. Thankyou again for your kindness. Nicole Elswyk xox

Holy cow -- this is so great! I have been buying stuff from Folded Pigs with brains on them -- They say, "I love you more than zombies love brains." Her shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5037354

This gives me some more ideas -- thanks!

Hey Harriet said...

Love that Artsy Fartsy mug! And the 'LSD in the dip' bowl is funny. I think I was at that party!

I'm a huge fan of Circa Ceramics on Etsy. I go ga-ga over the designs on their ceramic pieces. I want to buy everything they have!

Little Jane St said...

Tea from real china is the best! Tastes so much nicer. That lamp is spectacular!! the skies the limit with a hot glue gun and a bit of imagination isn't it??

The Sea Wind said...

Playful art! I'm in awe with your creative mind.
