lucky... and 2 new cups

.

BerlinDesignBlog run a raffle and lucky me won tickets for the Zeughausmesse, a decorative arts fair! It was very interesting and the standards were obviously higher than usual. With one artist i fell in love immediately, and, of course, it was a potter, a Chinese ceramics artist. Normally it takes me a lot of time to decide to buy or not to buy a thing. Often i don't buy it. But in this case i was sure: I need one of her works. She was showing some very very thin and refined pieces and above all the paintings envinced her great talent. There was a cherry blossom themed tea bowl for example, which was simply amazing. "It's like sipping from a leave," she explained. Well, it must be like that. These works are indeed fairylike, too fairylike for me, though. So i went for a pair of rustic bowls for everyday use. They're quite solid and very handy. Combined with other dishes they show their entire beauty. The artist herself was astonishing, too, by the way. Interesting, inspiring. --- I'm craving for more.
