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. (Imagine the irregular high-lows of a cityscape.) To clean inside tall ceramics, dampen a long, thin bottle brush (Casabella Soft Tip brushes, $9 for three, amazon.com); outside, a soft cloth will do. Townsend sideboard, fitzhughkarol.com for info. Vases (smooth and ribbed), sentimentoantiques.com for info. Hand-built pots and pitchers (rough-hewn) by Devin Dougherty, peninehart.com for info.
