I’m not a major fan of NZ inspired designs (like masses of silver ferns etc)…unless they are quite retro or kitsch…but I LOVE these delicate, subtle, organic ceramics from Nelson artisit Rose Griffin.
“My inspiration is driven by my interest in designing ceramics that are elegant and playful, speak of New Zealand Aotearoa, and are very functional. The pieces start out as slabs, and I am largely treating them as 2d objects in a similar way to working on paper. My pattern-making has a fresh, expressive quality and I use ceramic pencil and black stains in an inky, casual manner. I like the idea that you can choose to use a piece as a decorative object, a gift, or use it every day!”
