Husk's Custom Ceramics

In a city filled with culinary hotspots, Charleston's Husk is in a class of its own.

I was in the Heath Ceramics shop in Los Angeles this past weekend, borrowing a few pieces for a photo shoot, and I spotted their lovely new Summer Collection, a limited-edition series of new colors and items available only through October 1st.
