Like so many handmade designs, Bari Ziperstein’s stoneware coasters are distinctive in their size, color and shape.

The Glassell Park artist said she is inspired by Finnish patterns and the California desert in creating her Bzippy & Co. collection, which includes jewelry, brutalist vases and bowls, bud vases and pyramid lamps.

The heavy stoneware coasters are hand-painted circles or hexagons, easily stacked on a table. A set of four is $45. They’re available at Individual Melody in Los Angeles, ReForm School in Silver Lake, Fifth Floor in Chinatown, Platform in Highland Park, the Orange County Museum of Art Museum Shop in Newport Beach and BKB Ceramics in Joshua Tree.
