It started with bud vases. But in just its second year, Courtney Hamill’s handmade ceramics line, Honeycomb Studio, has expanded into lighting. The Atlanta native works out of a backyard shed at her home on the Westside, sometimes sitting down at the wheel but more often making her porcelain vessels, holiday ornaments, turtledoves, antlers, and now three styles of lamp bases from original slip-cast molds. Honeycomb (named for Hamill’s love of the hexagon) was recently picked up by Liberty of London and the uber-hip lighting company Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. In Atlanta, find her pieces at Young Blood Boutique, Steve McKenzie’s, and West Elm, among other stores.
