Art pottery is not only beautiful and decorative, but it can be functional as well. Just Art Pottery carries many different types and styles of art pottery to choose from, so there’s something for everyone and every budget.  

Whether you’re looking for something arts and crafts, mission style, mid-century modern, art deco, contemporary, or something more traditional and classic, you’ll be able to find the perfect art pottery gift for that special person in your life. Here are some ideas for vintage and handmade gifts for any occasion.  

History lovers and antique fans will love art pottery gifts, too. There are rich historical stories behind pottery gifts from the people who made them to those who may have enjoyed them for a lifetime before. They are not just gifts or presents to be used a few times and stored away. Art pottery gifts can be cherished in any home.

Ceramic Baskets 

Vintage ceramic baskets are functional and decorative pottery gifts used as accent centerpieces for a counter or table. Pottery baskets are also practical gifts that can be used to display fruit and vegetables or flowers or as a stunning statement piece on their own. The vast array of options in styles, patterns, and shapes makes it easy to find a vintage pottery basket for just about anyone in your life.

Art Pottery Bowls  

Ceramic pottery bowls come in various sizes and prices and range from traditional styles such as art nouveau, arts and crafts, mid-century modern, or modern deco. Bowls are beautiful when used to display fruits, vegetables, or decorative ornaments, but they’re also just as gorgeous as decoration on their own. Many of our customers love using their antique and vintage art pottery bowls as centerpieces they decorate for various holidays, switching out what they hold for each season.

Vintage Flower Pots 

Do you have a flower or succulent lover in your family? Our wide selection of original, vintage, and collectible flower pots includes examples from Roseville, McCoy, Weller, and more at various affordable price points. Give them as a gift on their own or pair them with a flower or succulent you know your friend or loved one will enjoy.  

Antique and Vintage Pottery Planters

Houseplants are so trendy now as more people welcome greenery into their homes. We have unique and one-of-a-kind antique and vintage planters in a wide range of sizes, perfect for empty displays, tiny succulents, or even very large floral displays. They vary in style from minimalist to ornate and everything in between.

Vintage Vases  

Pottery vases are a timeless and classic, original art gift idea. They are perfect for displaying flowers but can also be used to simply decorate a room, adding a pop of color and history. Vintage vases come in various shapes, sizes, colors, price ranges, and decorative styles, so you can easily find one that is perfect for the person you’re gifting. At Just Art Pottery, we have vintage vases as old as 100 years or more, as well as some more recent vintage works of art.

Wall Pottery 

This is possibly the most unique gift idea on the list and is also one of my favorites. Vintage wall pockets, plaques, tiles, and hanging baskets can be the perfect gift for that person in your life who appreciates ceramic wall art. If you are buying a gift for someone who has eclectic taste and loves a gorgeous gallery wall, then a wall pottery piece is the absolute perfect addition to their space. And you can almost guarantee that you’ll be the only one gifting them a vintage or antique wall pocket or tile. Like other vintage art pottery, they’ll cherish these pieces for a lifetime.
