Bodanna, the East Village’s coolest ceramics shop/non-profit, is one of our favorite places to buy gifts, especially of the house-warming variety. The business is run with the help of inner city teens, who do apprenticeships in the studio and in the shop. And while we love a good cause, we wouldn’t buy vases and mugs and bowls that weren’t great-looking. Every morning, we drink coffee out of the Morning Mug, the perfect big, comforting cup. ($25 each).
