For the home:
Sick to death of the profusion of Yankee Candles in every household? Make a change and start a Cire Trudon Candle trend. Available in a variety of sizes and 18 different scents (like fresh laundry, the wooden floors of Versailles and the spices and honey of the Ottoman Empire), they're on sale at Privet House in Greenwich and New Preston.
This large, hand-built vase by Nancy Gardner of Philadelphia was made using a pinch and coil technique. Water-tight and functional as well as decorative, it's available at WAVE in New Haven.
New Jersey artist Peggy Karr creates enameled glass clocks, bowls, serving plates and platters that are beautiful as well as functional (pictured, an oval platter from one of her 2013 design lines, the Gourmet Collection). Her work is a staple of the American crafts collection at Artisan's Marketplace in Plainville.
