Ben Medansky carefully makes practical things that double as artworks. His ceramics label features items like candle holders, cups and bowls that are so stunningly beautiful, you'd probably be too scared to use them. 

Starting his business in L.A in 2012, it has quickly grown due to Medansky's quirky design (using a faux gold nugget as a cup handle, for instance). Locally uoi can grab some his range from Melbourne's Third Drawer Down.
