The Fabulous Ceramics Designer(3)
From the designer Sarah Grove:
"By parodying sumptuous upholstery and rich textured fabrics which even when old and sagging suggest comfort and luxury, I use porcelain to make functional vessels for the home such as jugs and vases."
"There is a contrast between the soft pillow forms of the fabric and the cold unyielding nature of the porcelain. Simplicity of form balances the rich surfaces and is enhanced by the whiteness and translucency of the clay and by using only transparent glaze. The imprints of my fingers are left on the interiors of the pots to affirm the presence of the maker in each piece. "
