More sighing....

For a long time I have been a lover of Virginia Graham  a  brilliant ceramicist who fashions amongst other things,these enchanting teacups and teapots out of nostalgic designs such as cornishware and victorian inspired fabric and old  brass taps, keys and handles.Beautiful but not too precious to use.
I love them for their eccentricity , humour and  quirkiness and because it is essentially ceramic patchwork............


Don't you just love them ,girls?
