Kat Silverstein is a ceramist and designer based in Chicago, Illinois. She always loved making practical gifts for her family with her illustrations, and when people showed interest in buying her products she started her online store 7 Doors Studio. Her store offers hand-painted cups, plates and measuring spoons with animals as a primary theme. The above shown 'Forest Animal measuring spoons' set is my favorite with lovely illustrations of an owl, fox, squirrel and hedgehog. You can find more of her designs here.
