Thinking about making ceramic tags for my gift packages this year. The ceramic tags and ornaments shown above are the creation of Australia-based artist, Kim Wallace. Coveting those Australian wildlife designs. Not unlike myself many graphic designers often miss â€œcreating something by handâ€. She says this regarding her transition from graphic designer to full time ceramist:
â€œMy professional background is in graphic design (which I love) however after nearly ten years in the industry, working almost exclusively via computer, I found myself missing the process of creating something by hand. As a result I made the decision in 2008 to leave my job as senior designer at a boutique design studio and before long found myself elbow-deep in mud and happier than ever. I havenâ€™t looked back since!â€
