these ceramic Ghosts by Anders Arhøj & Louise Gaarmann simply stole my heart – it’s amazing how you can paint a set of eyes on something and suddenly they’re adorable little  creatures.

Based on the ideas of the Japanese Shinto religion believing that everything in nature has a soul – a mountain rock, a plant, a pebble on the beach – Anders ArhøjLouise Gaarmann designed a wide range of ceramic figures and blew life into them. The small Ghosts inhabit your living space and are useful for many things – paper weights, door stoppers, toys, wedding ring holders, kitchen talismans or as company on a lonely night with no friends around to talk to. Each Ghost is unique, hand thrown in earthenware, hand glazed, hand decorated and low-fired in the kiln three times.

    These are not like the kind of ghosts I am used to reading about but they are interesting in their own way. They remind me of incense cones.
