Simple Pleasures

I love the texture and tactile quality of hand thrown ceramics — so warm and friendly. I have a small porcelain mug made by a local potter that I only use for evening tea — makes it an enjoyable little ritual.

Marnie Gilder

I came across these striking hand pulled prints by Australian artist Marnie Gilder on the wonderful Art Hound site, and was immediately smitten. A successful painter, Marnie originally started making screen prints just for her own home — but then found they were so popular that she opened her online store. Her lovely work is available in signed, dated limited editions of up to 10.
