This Week’s Theme: Plates

Australian artist Kim Wallace  of KW Ceramics created this beautiful lace-like plate. She cleverly imprinted a lace doily to give it its mandala-like design. As a doily maker myself, I’m thrilled and inspired by her creativity!

About her vintage lace collection:

My pieces eternalize the gorgeous patterns and the impression into the clay seems the perfect medium to be able to enjoy the beautiful craft of lace doilies all over again.

About Kim:

Born & raised in a small town in the Netherlands, I have been calling Australia home since 2000. I have been passionate about art & craft for as long as I can remember, and have completed many arts-based courses throughout the years involving painting, ceramics and drawing.

My professional background is in graphic design (which I love) however after nearly ten years in the industry, working almost exclusively via computer, I found myself missing the process of creating something by hand. As a result I made the decision in 2008 to leave my job as senior designer at a boutique design studio and before long found myself elbow-deep in mud and happier than ever. I haven’t looked back since!”

 Inspiration

“The attractions of ceramics lie partly in its contradictions. It is both difficult and easy, with an element beyond our control. It is both extremely fragile and durable. Like ‘Sumi’ ink painting, it does not lend itself to erasures and indecision.” ~ Isamu Noguchi

Happy Coloring!
