Handmade Ceramics to Treasure by Virginia Graham!

Virginia Graham's handmade ceramic pieces instantly caught my eye when I spotted them in a little local art gallery. I particularly love Virginia's range of unusual teapots and tea cups, the vintage colours and victorian floral patterns work beautifully with the metallic lustres she finishes them off with. Surfaces are decorated my a mixture of slip painting and enamel transfer printing which result in real individual and precious pieces.

Virginia studied at the University of Wales Cardiff Institute and now currently works from her own studio creating these items to treasure.Virginias unique pieces are eclectic with a modern twist. Her teapots sit at quirky angles and incorporate interesting shapes and features, like a tap handle for a lid. They surprisingly remind me of Mrs. Potts and Chip from Beauty and the Beast, when they serve Belle dinner in the castle.
