There is something touching and romantic about the work of ceramic designer Hannah Tofalos. I love how she combines lovely vintage looking patterns on a clean-lined contemporary egg cup or stackable salt & pepper.
She says that she had a love of ceramics since secondary school and continued to specialise in the material throughout her A-levels, art foundation and University. What she finds irresistible about ceramics is its many possibilities; there are endless ways of manipulation through texture, surface pattern and colour and she always had a flare for exploiting these qualities through her work.
However, my heart still goes to the beautiful chinaware from Kathleen Hills.
