reader saraM pointed me in the direction of the gorgeous organic stylings of uk ceramicist claire palastanga. the delicate porcelain forms are finely finished, and enhanced with the contrasting addition of silver of gold leaf details. claire is inspired by nature and has long been fascinated by spikey forms with sensitive centers, such as the fruit from the horse chestnut tree.

    Whoa! I wouldn’t want to step on one of those while I was wading in the ocean.

    They’re much more harmless (and look really cool) sitting on a tabletop, though.
