Rie Ito....


Ceramicist Rie Ito's work, in collaboration with Graf is really blowing my mind right now! As with much craft and design from Japan, the colour palette, subtlety and originality of form is absolutely stunning and quite unrivalled in my book.......the installation above is part of the 'Animal Magic' exhibition at Vessel Gallery, and you can see Rie's work closer here and read a bit more about her, and her collaboration with Graf here ..... isn't this work just wonderful!!??

happy Wednesday :) xox
