Admiring the work of Melbourne-based artist Phillipa A. Taylor, who combines her porcelain pieces with detailed weaving. Her unique range of porcelain ware and jewelry are a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. On an interview with We are Scout we learn this about this inspiring artist:
â€œIâ€™m a Tassel Maker, MacramÃ© Knotter, Potter, Thrifter, Collector, Mother and Cactus Lover!â€
â€œI find inspiration from the making process, one idea always leads to another then another! Iâ€™m constantly looking to create a variety of things and Iâ€™m not afraid to experiment and try new things. Not everything works but that is part of the fun! I keep motivated by engaging with the most amazing design and maker community on Instagram! I love the blogging community and have made many dear friends too.â€
