Organic Porcelain

Made from hand built porcelain, Nuala O'Donovan creates these amazing forms inspired by nature.  I love her statement.  Here is just a portion of it.  

"My decision to research patterns and forms from nature stemmed from my interest in the narrative quality of irregularities in patterns.  The history behind a scarred or broken surface is what fascinates me.  The evidence of a response to random events visible in patterns in nature is testament to the ability of living organisms to recover, to respond, and to continue growing and changing.  It is the imperfections in the patterns caused by a unique experience that are evidence of the life force in living organisms.
