shannon garson ceramics

You guys know how I feel about polka dots. Though stripes are my true Kryptonite, seeing dots on something always makes my head spin. I’ve gotten better at turning around and walking away from polka dots, but I still have a hard time resisting the initial “Ooh . . . dots” reaction. The same thing happened when I saw these ladylike new ceramic pieces from Shannon Garson in Australia. She’s been working with porcelain for over ten years, and her latest collection, which celebrates spots in a big way, just debuted. She sent over some shots from the photoshoot for the new pieces, and these were definitely my favorite. That delicate pink inside glaze against the black and white exterior is pure girly heaven.
