Georgina Warne creates animals and birds, handmade in stoneware or porcelain. She is a ceramicist and printmaker and often combines both practices as well as hand painting directly on to the clay. She draws her inspiration not only from the British countryside but from folk art, folk songs and poetry as well. On her website the UK-based artist states that she is “drawn by details, qualities and subtle colors”.

Andrew Ludick has worked in many graphic arts fields from editorial illustrator, to mural painting as well as fine arts painting. He graduated with a major in illustration from the Columbus College of Art before focusing on ceramics. After moving to Ireland he slowly made a change from painting and drawing to working with clay. We’re very glad he did as we love the organic forms and the decorated patterns which compliment each pieces. His artwork has also been superbly adapted to area rugs as shown above.
You can follow the artist on his website, Facebook and Instagram.

We are big fans of Japanese ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima. We love his whimsical motifs of animals and plant life on clay. Born in Fukuoka, Kagoshima studied pottery at an art college under the influence of his grandfather who used to be an artist. Now he is involved not just in pottery, but also in a wide range of activities such as textile and product design as well as print art.
