Inspiration is a wonderful thing. Take these lovely vases by ceramic artist rae dunn. I love their hand built, happy forms with their graphic dots and text decorating the surface. Simple, modern, animated and confident, they have a presence and character that draws me in.
And then I see the inspiration for these wonderful vases and well, stop already. Nothing more needs to be said as far as I'm concerned. Dog + craft + pattern. It's the perfect trifecta.
