Oh. My. Word. I have just come across the work of UK based artist Claire Partington, and I am completely in love. Her portfolio is filled to the brim with meticulously hand built ceramics that do a beautiful job of blurring the line between classical and, well, not classical. The pieces above are two of my favorites: “London Venuses”, aka Lewisham and Kilburn – they are young, empowered and pregnant; and “Venus” – Claire’s version of the mythical Venus “complete with two-headed dog and Reebok classics.” LOVE.
