Made of flexible rubber, this fragile-looking vessel is virtually kid- and pet-proof. Fold the neck inside the base to create a petite bubble-shaped container, or pull it out to reveal a gourd-like form. Available in five colors, including turquoise (shown).
Perhaps best known for its hand-blown glass creations, this 38-year-old company also produces a line of unique stoneware. Pieces are hand-thrown, one by one, on a potter’s wheel and hand-glazed, so each has a distinctive, artisanal quality. Available in celadon or white (shown).
Repeated hot-water machine washings (and some quality time with the agitator) helped give character to these colorful molded felt cover-ups. To clean the glass inserts, just remove and wash. Available in three colors.
