bludomes

The Thira collection of jewellery and ceramics is inspired by my travels to Greece last year. It is a theme that I will be exploring for a while because there is so much more to say through making! Blue is a colour one sees everywhere in Greece from the ubiquitous Greek flag, to the sea, church cupolas, the ever present mati (evil eye) and the sky of course. I came away from Santorini lusting after those beautiful chalky blues seen on all domed churches clustered around the caldera. I’ve tried to replicate those colours, textures and forms with glaze on porcelain and through soft geometric forms in ceramics and metal. It’s very hard for me to articulate just how much I loved travelling through this part of Greece instead I will let the pictures do the talking.
