Modernica Case Study Ceramics® Line Adds Beautiful New Architectural Shapes and Styles

Modernica’s full line of Case Study Ceramics® was released only a few years ago; since then, we’ve been pleased and surprised at how much our customers love them! The classic architectural designs have become so popular, we decided to add to the selection of shapes and styles, while maintaining the modernist roots of the designs. Here are a few of our latest and greatest ceramic releases, just in time for fall!

Case Study Low Pan Ceramic Cylinder

Succulents in Low Cylinder Ceramic Planter

The low, wide form of the Case Study Low Pan Ceramic Cylinder make it absolutely perfect for your gorgeous succulents and cacti. The shape will also lend itself well to other plants with shallow root systems, like herbs, small flowers, and bonsai. The simple, stately Low Pan Cylinder is a beautiful way to add some plant life to any interior or patio landscape.

Case Study High Pan Ceramic Cylinder

Tall Cylinder Planter Modernica

Our Case Study High Pan Ceramic Cylinder features the same classic lines of our original Cylinder Ceramic Planters, but with a wider, more robust shape. The deep, wide interior will easily accommodate larger plants and small trees, with a shape that lends itself well to both stands or wooden plinth bases. Like our other Case Study Ceramics®, the High Pan Cylinder functions well as an indoor or outdoor planter.

Case Study Wok Ceramic Planter

Modernica Wok Planter

You may recognize the Case Study Wok Ceramic Planter as one of the most popular shapes that graced the yards of many homes during the mid-century modern era. In the making of this new design, we were inspired by the ceramic shapes we saw in vintage photos of homes like Case Study House #22. The unique lines make for an eye-catching display of almost any type of plant, from larger succulents to small trees and shrubs.

If you’re in love with one of these brand new ceramic designs, your in luck! All of Modernica’s Case Study Ceramics® are on sale through this weekend, from today until Monday, September 2, 2013. Use code “ceramics” at checkout to receive 15% off plus Free Shipping!

Stan Bitters Thumb Pots: Now Available from Modernica

Stan Bitters Thumbprint Pottery

If you’re at all familiar with Stan Bitters’s iconic work, you’ve probably seen his thumbprints pressed into his ceramics, from planters to wall-length sculptures. His rough-hewn, nature-inspired style is what made his work so unique and integral to the organic modern movement that began in the 1960s. Now, you can take home a piece of this fascinating history when you purchase a Stan Bitters Thumb Pot from Modernica, all of which are still hand-sculpted in Bitters’s Fresno studio.

The organic modernist craft movement began in the 1960s and was influenced greatly by the earthy, hand-crafted work of artists like Stan Bitters. Today, his mid-century work is still scattered across Southern California; his timeless sculptures and fountains are now valued as historic masterpieces. Indeed, Thumb Pots and ceramic pieces that were created by Stan Bitters in the ’60s and ’70s are sometimes auctioned today for thousands of dollars.

Modernica Ceramics

Luckily you can find his current pieces right here at Modernica, including Thumb Pots and Ceramic Birdhouses. Get a feel for the organic, rough-hewn quality of his work at our Los Angeles showroom, or visit to order.
