burnt paper - Elena Nuez

(love the idea of using this paper in a jewelry rolling mill for a great texture on metal!

Artist's Profile: Joan Hardie  Artist's Statement  My aims are to produce ceramics that encourage people to look afresh at the natural world and which are lively, interesting, accessible and affordable. My work is inspired by natural textures, colours and forms, particularly from trees, ferns, lichens and fungi. I enjoy trying to capture something of the feeling of a natural subject in clay, so that the ceramic piece becomes a celebration of nature.
