Thanks for visting Simply The Nest. I'm an English girl married to an Portuguese boy, and when I'm not working or taking care of our three adorable daughters, I blog about our house renovation, DIY projects, and family life in a Victorian Manchester nest.

Blue And White Organic Ceramics

As mentioned yesterday, over the weekend I purchased two rather splendid blue and white ceramic pots by Lee Page Hanson from the Manchester Craft Centre:

I think the patterns were probably created by the artist pressing the palm of his hand to the clay - but from further away they look like Japanese mountain scenes. I find the contrast between distance and immediacy rather pleasing.

In addition to pots, vessels, vases and spheres, Lee also makes tiles:

Loving the birds, natch. I like the idea of choosing four (or maybe nine) and hanging them in a grid in our home office.

What have you purchased recently to grace your casa?

    These are really beautiful ceramics. Their color and all the stuff looks so cool. Main thing about them is their fixture problem.
