Objects of Lust: Vincent Van Duysen Containers

First off, let me just say that I can't imagine ever spending more than $200 on a simple ceramic vessel. But if I did somehow find myself with that kind of cash to burn, these would be the ones.

Created by Belgian architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen, the earthenware containers are "expressed in the subtle but intense palette of a northern European sky" and topped with thick, weathered wooden plinths. They're the essence of simplicity and restraint. In a word: beautiful.

The small size, which measures nearly 6 inches in diameter, is $225; the large, nearly 12 inches, is $325 from Beklina.
