Notice a trend?
Ceramic as a medium has always been a presiding force or art form, challenging our perception of functionality in the art world.
It acts as a bridge, joining craftsmanship, practicality, design and folk traditions. The full spectrum, from glazed Bitossi collectables to home made earthenware pieces, reminiscent of the 70’s crafting movement, seem to be everywhere you turn. The organic shapes and imperfections increasing the desirability to have a 'unique piece'.
The ceramic totems pictured reminded us of the wild and wonderful Alexander Girard Wooden Doll Collection half decorative element, half toy.
