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.

Martha Pachón Rodriguez


Recently viewed a post on This is Colossal about ceramic artist, Martha Pachón Rodriguez.  We loved her sculpted pieces that we also had to share.  The artist was born in Santa Fé de Bogotá, Colombia, graduated in fine arts in Neiva, Columbia and continued her education in Faenza, Italy.  On First Drops she shares her dedication to ceramics as follows:

“I was born in a land where we experience the use of ceramic in daily life. As a girl, I loved clay, my parents knew that a box of coloured clay to shape was more important to me than a toy. At University, my thesis in the Fine Arts Faculty was completely focused on ceramics. My inclinations have always come natural to me, they were never imposed and this represents my way of communicating with the world.”  

More of her work can be viewed on her website, Instagram and Facebook.
