Thérèse Lebrun’s Porcelains.

Thérèse Lebrun’s Porcelains.

* “Since 2004, Thérèse Lebrun has focused on mastering the potentials of paper-thin porcelain. Lebrun creates shapes, objects that are utterly empty. These are reminiscent of remnants of former living things and—dare we say it—living beings, that evolution must have forgotten to finish. Hers is the forgotten world of the past; fossils, petrified plants, and the leftover plant structures with traces of ancient rhythms, order and disorder. She continues her research using the vestiges of a past world or forms that exist only in her imagination. This is evolution that Darwin never dreamed of. Lebrun gives us fragility, translucence, and boundaries in porcelain that touches all manner of once living surfaces. She creates hiding places for imaginary new life forms yet to evolve.”–Puls Contemporary Ceramics Images ©...

Aneta Regel’s Ceramics.

Aneta Regel’s Ceramics.

* Aneta Regel grew up in northern Poland, and graduated from the Royal College of London in 2006. I’m so in love with her ceramics. Below is what the artist explains about her work: “I create objects that exist neither in the natural or in the manufactured world, but which, once brought into being, can reflect and transmit information and feelings about nature and my own existence. Forms of nature and natural materials fascinate me. My aim is to juxtapose the natural and human in order to create a dynamic friction. The main focus of my forms lies within the exploration of material qualities and its combinations.” Images © Aneta...

Elizabeth Shriver’s Ceramics.

Elizabeth Shriver’s Ceramics.

* Elizabeth Shriver‘s work is so beautiful and organic. In the artist’s own words: “I work with clay to create an array of graceful, organic forms.  These pieces are made through a variety of hand-building methods such as slab-building, coiling, pinching, and forming with molds. Rarely relying on glaze, I use textures, stains, and colored clay to add visual and tactile interest.  I am drawn toward neutral earth tones, and my work reflects the natural landscape, plant, and undersea life that are my inspiration. The curving lines of nature inherent in my work generate an illusion of movement, giving each piece an almost lifelike quality.  A successful piece is one that begs to be touched as well as explored visually.” Images © Elizabeth...

Claude Conover’s Ceramics.

* Born in Pittsburgh and educated at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Claude Conover (1907–1994), worked as a commercial designer for over 30 years before turning full-time to ceramics, the techniques of which he taught himself.
