photoAlquimia is a design studio based in Madrid, Spain.  Carlos Jiménez is the photographer and Pilar Balsalobre is the art director, both involved in providing creative solutions in developing spaces, objects and events.  Their main source of inspiration is nature, trades and handcrafting techniques.  As they have written in their company philosophy it is evident that “nature has given them answers of unimaginable value”.

Aylin Bilgiç

Turkish ceramic artist Aylin Bilgiç is known for her series of ceramic bowls that look like a splash of liquid frozen in time.  Born in Istanbul she graduated from Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Ceramics and Glass.  She continued her artistic studies in various workshops including VitrA Ceramic Art Workshop.

While we love her household porcelain products we prefer to feature her whimsical hand-sculpted ceramic characters. She created three series:  The Vacationers, Ordinary People and Summer Girls. 

You can view more of her work on her website, Behance and Instagram.
