I was listening in the other day to a mom and daughter going back and forth on appropriate fashion and it reminded me of the same conversations I used to have with my mom. Dang. We disagreed on anything related to that topic. I drove her crazy with my clothing choices, always. But one thing we agreed on more than not was jewelry. She had an artist’s eye that I envied. I hope I inherited a little of that from her. This is a piece of hers that I am just beginning to appreciate.

Friday Arts Porcelain

from Far4.Net

From Far4’s webshop: “Porcelain Studio Klimenkoff, founded in 2003 and located in Moscow, specializes in producing one-of-a-kind hand crafted porcelain creations. Their highly skilled artists trained in classical techniques of painting and gilding create items, whose quality can be compared to those of Sevres, Meissen and Imperial Porcelain Factory. Studio Klimenkoff has a rare specialty – hand made sculpture, decorative plate designs, Easter eggs, as well as delicate porcelain flowers. Only a handful of artists in the whole of Russia have these unique skills. These highly trained artists are creating a Renaissance in decorative Russian porcelain.”

I find these small sculptures utterly elegant. I love porcelain in any form but these are truly special. So deft and graceful, so pristine. Now I must be off to find a white dress made from finely pressed linen… and a wide brimmed hat. I feel a walk in a spring garden flooded with morning sunlight coming on!
