Sally McGill porcelain dish
Obscure Objects of Desire

Pure porcelain indulgence!

I can’t get enough of my favourite ceramicist artist in London, Sally McGill.  Her sense of aesthetics is pure indulgence to me.  I love her colour combinations of splashing a little orange onto porcelain plates mixed with fine black lines. Or turquoise circles on plates.   Her pieces are all handmade and beautifully crafted.  She recently moved to a new studio at Regent House,Thane Villas, London N7 7PH but catch her this week at the Three Day Designer-Maker Sale at Craft Central, 33-35 St Johns Square, London, EC1M 4DS running from 9th to the 11th August, opening hours from 12-6pm (Thursday till 8pm).
