Felt + Fat Handmade Ceramics Mystery Boxes Available Now

Felt + Fat Mystery Box

Quirky Philadelphia-based ceramics studio Felt + Fat has just released their mystery boxes.

Each box contains three, six or thirteen handmade pieces — like bowls, mugs and more — of “seconds” quality. “Seconds” means these wares aren’t entirely perfect, they may have an uneven glaze or other cosmetic issue, but are still fully functional.

The three-piece mystery box is $45 and includes small- to medium-sized items, while the six- ($85) and 13-piece ($160) sets feature a mix of small, medium and serving pieces.

Sets are curated in hopes of creating fun, cohesive collections with so much variety that no two boxes are the same.

“Looking to get your hands on some particularly weird Felt+Fat pieces? That’s what the mystery box is for! We’ve been trying a lot of new things lately and not everything hits the mark or is particularly scaleable, so instead of letting them gather dust we’re shipping them out to you!” the brand explained on Instagram Friday.

Felt + Fat opened in 2014 with a focus on creating custom tableware for chefs. Five years later, their handmade pieces can be found in more than 140 restaurants across five different countries and now, in your home, too.

  1. I ordered the large mystery box and to be honest regret it. I should have known better as I like most things matching in my home. I received random selection of colors (which I was expecting as it’s a mystery box) but too many yellow items (4 of 12) which I really dislike. And a bunch of shape dishes/plates that won’t be useful for me at all, like a kids divided plate. I don’t love any item and will probably only find 3 out of 12 useful.

    This was a chance I was taking with it being a mystery box but I’d rather pay full price and get things I will love and use next time.

    • I’m so sorry to hear this. I ordered the large, too, mine arrived today, and I’m happy with what I got. Two mugs of different sizes; two handle-less teacups; small, medium and large plates (different colors); and the other six were bowls of different sizes and styles but mostly neutrals. Two of the bowls are serving size, three are big enough for a meal, and the last is a good size for a bowl of guac or mixed nuts or something. One yellow, one orange and one lime green item, but also three charcoal colored items, and some more muted colors. We’ll enjoy these even if we don’t use everything all the time.

  2. Received mine today. Wow that was fast. A squat grey mug, a large speckled mug, 3 bowls in varying sizes taupe, tan, and white and a very light pink serving plate. Really beautiful. A couple pieces were obviously seconds the larger items. The rest were not.

  3. If I could pick out warm tones, cool tones or neutrals I would buy one!

    I can’t risk that much money on a mystery box to possibly only end up with orange and yellow when that wouldn’t go with my house at all, but cools or cools/neutrals I would be all about!

  4. I capitulated and will post when I receive my items. The shipping is $10 regardless of order size. I bought the 6 item box. I like to keep a few things around for hostess gifts in case I get to visit friends again in the future. This looks really special.

  5. Sounds fun! I’ve purchased “seconds” from indie brands before, & I honestly would not have known the difference if they hadn’t been pointed out.

  6. Holy cow – wish I’d have thought of this first! What a great idea for a box. Hope you will review this one!

  7. Will you be doing a review of this?

  8. I do like some ceramic pieces, but since they tend to be “special” items I like picing out my own patterns or types so they don’t become clutter. Plus there are some sorts of things that would seem silly to just have one of.
