Over the last little while i've been getting pretty interested in ceramics. I even had a conversation with a guy at work who used to make bowls and cups and bells at a farm down south. I really like beautifully shaped white stoneware... I think the trick is a lovely little plump round base. I'm yet to see exactly what I want, but recent SOYA winner for Object Design Alex Gilmour's Evie brand of ceramics comes pretty close. Quite delicious cups and jugs.
