I discovered these beautiful ceramic pieces by Karen Millar and thought it was well worth sharing. I love the organic subjects and the simplicity in which they are executed.
This is an extract from her artist's statement:
"I make work that explores polarity – the relationship between growth and decay, loss and hope, soft and hard, vulnerable and defensive, light and dark, interior and exterior. Organic forms inspire me and are often central to my work. There is inherent beauty in the cycle of decay and death, growth and renewal. That they can exist at the same time and in the same being surprises and intrigues me. This paradox gives me a reason to examine and enjoy the detail in nature; not just the obviously attractive parts but also the protective elements, the clumps of thorns, hard husks and barbed appendages."
