Milo (Milena) Hachim

Milo (Milena) Hachim brings her illustration skills to life by transforming her drawings into objects.  She is inspired by everyday life and the love for objects which she illustrates and transforms into clay.  Illustration has always served as a form of expression and as she says on and interview (in Spanish) with Domestika

“The illustration has made me lose a little shyness because I am very quiet. It makes it easier for me to speak by drawing.”

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

Anna Whitehouse

On January 1, 2018 ceramist Anna Whitehouse began project to make one bottle a day for 100 days. The UK-based artist limited herself to a single form but the designs she created on the surface differed each day.  After completing the project she created a “clay calendar” showing each bottle she made along with their titles.  On Craft Centre Leeds she writes this about the project:  

”The aim was to free up my making and explore ideas quickly.  Recording the process on Instagram and naming each after something that I did that day, helped remind me that these were not supposed to be finished pieces.  It allowed me to take risks, because there was always going to be another one tomorrow!”
