Jennifer Dumet ceramics

My new bowl - love it. I have the large one in white.   It is a very thin delicate bowl with a twist. The teeth or tentacles or spikes - whatever you would like to call them - grimace at you saying delicate ? As if.

Flower Quince

I look at wallpaper a lot as part of my work at Porter's Paints.  I've learnt that although you may love a wallpaper pattern, if the scale is not right for the room it won't work.  Here is a great example of scale and form that is just right framing the window with the organic shapes of the branches.  All the lines are curved - the vanity, the spalshback and the upholstery and I love the line up of the stool and the wallpaper on the left.  This iconic paper is Flower Quince by Clarence House.
