Overtake a Piece of Furniture With Ceramic Vases or Teapots

Dominating the runner on a rarely used dining-room table or decorating an unexpected cabinet, large ceramics can work like sculpture. Whether your collection is a mixed palette or a single color, think about creating an intriguing “horizon line” by juxtaposing tall and short, angular and shapely, smooth and rough.
