All right all right, twist my arm, I admit it :
I covet and collect handmade functional ceramics with a PASSION.
I see it, I feel it, I love it, I buy it.
Later I get a little chuckle of glee and a sparkle of wonder whenever I drink my coffee or tea or eat that piece of homemade gingerbread brownie from my delightful mug/cup/plate/bowl.
Here is my latest favoured vessel:
Spotted Grey Cup – handmade with great artistry by Janelle Songer. In her words: “It is wheel-thrown porcelain which is then altered to achieve an asymmetric, organic form that looks as if it’s rising up/growing.” See more of her work here: Janelle Songer’s Ceramics
It looks and feels different from every angle and the saturated colors are simply exquisite. It is perfectly perfectly perfectly imperfect . .
Drool all you want at those glowing conceptual art pieces floating in a white stratosphere in nanospace somewhere . . . .
I’ll sip my Tulsi from Spotted Grey Cup.
