When it comes to objets d’art and col­lectibles, we do tend to fa­vor pot­tery and tile.

22. GREEN TEA

Cer­tain shades of green are beloved (and col­lected) by Lori Vi­a­tor, who is par­tial to pot­tery by this maker. The hand-thrown teapot with a lid in the Trel­lis pat­tern holds up to 32 ounces, for three to four cups of tea. $110. One Acre Ceram­ics, (734) 904-6322, oneacre­ce­ram­ics.com

23. SONG OF IRI­DES­CENCE

Iri­des­cent-glazed art tile makes Mary Ellen’s heart sing—espe­cially when the glazes are deep, change­able blues. From a fire­place-sur­round in­stal­la­tion, 3" x 3" accent tiles are $12.60 each. The 1" x 1" em­bossed geo­met­rics are $15 apiece. Pe­wabic, (313) 626-2000, pe­wabic.com

24. THAT FAIENCE COLOR

Arts & Crafts pot­tery in the pe­riod’s mag­nif­i­cent greens: Pa­tri­cia’s fa­vorite. This suite of hand­made, lim­ited-edi­tion vases in the un­usual North­ern Lights Green faience glaze in­cludes (from top) Prairie Globe, Nou­veau Arch, Seren­ity, and Prairie Whis­per. Tallest is 10". $98 to $178. Door Pot­tery, (608) 274-5511, door­pot­tery.com

25. A QUACK AT TRA­DI­TION

This green-winged teal de­coy is a duck her dog Sandy won’t chase into the marsh, laughs Lori. Made from win­ter­cut, air-dried white cedar, formed us­ing hand tools, then fin­ished with durable house paint. All de­coys are self-right­ing and sea­wor­thy, much like Lori her­self. $325.
