I have a confession, I’m a little bit obsessed with ceramics in all it’s guises. I’ve had a good clear out of old crockery, mugs and bowls that are no longer used or serve any purpose, even most of the vintage china has gone. Clearing out and starting again feels good and I’m starting a curated collection of beautiful ceramics and pottery.
I have a few pieces of old that have come back into the foreground but it was a Parkwood pottery mug by Lane that started me on this path and obviously my need to clear out and feel free from clutter. I have recently invested in some new dinner plates from Minor Goods which have the most beautiful glaze. I don’t want matching I want mix and match but all within the same hues of stone through to deep blue.
I am fascinated and in awe of those who use there hands to create objects that have been born from the ground and turned into useful, practical objects and art forms in their own right.
I love the tactile nature of ceramics, the different methods and stories applied to each piece that make that certain mark or colour. There is nothing better than wrapping your hands around your favourite mug or bowl and the comfort it brings, like saying hello to an old friend.
