NO STUDIO

These are all made by my sister, it’s really inspiring to have such a talented yet modest artist in the family. She’s got a ceramics studio in New York and has made so much beautiful work recently it’s unbelievable how prolific she is!

This is her wonderfully serene website: http://romyno.com/meteor-luxe/

She’s also done a line of really powerful jewellery called MOMOTOBO that celebrates that natural world in all it’s profound beauty. I have a string of prayer beads she made and recently sent me, my most treasured item!

Islamic Ceramic

We had a drawing class with the marvellous Maryclare in the British Museum. I spent time in the Islamic Art section and the Japan section. The drawing below is copied from a 15th Century dish. It was painted in a deep blue onto a white glaze. Some Islamic painting was really influential in the early stages of the development of my creature, so it was nice to learn more about it and see another graceful bearded animal.
