Made a trip to Harvard Ceramics yesterday to hear the wonderfully talented Robin Best speak about her work in the New Blue and White Show at the MFA. She uses china paints on all of her work - incredible. Anyone can appreciate the immense detail on her pieces, but for anyone thats ever tried china paints: mind blow (me). I especially love her duo of tiny vases that she actually painted under a magnifying glass! Her images are historical references that she collages in such a way so as to create a narrative around the pot...and she compliments each piece with a written narrative of her own. Glad I went - it was inspiring in all sorts of ways! Now off to the studio! Have a great day!
