Hilal Minda, mother of one boy in Providence, Rhode Island.
Why We Love Her:
Hilal’s work isn’t just pottery-class quality: Considering she used to make large-scale ceramic sculptures back in her Turkish college and earned an architecture-engineering degree, she now produces extraordinary works of functional art. Everything from tableware to jewelry is impeccably designed with unique shapes and bold, contrasting colors; it’s the kind of housewarming or wedding gift that will really stand out. (On another note, we love Hilal’s handmade leg warmers at her other Etsy shop, Sunshine Handmade Knits.)
