Black and White
The 'Black and White' collection took genesis on a museum visit in New Mexico, USA. I found myself completely fascinated by the Native American 'Pueblo pottery' and the dramatic decoration on these pots- especially when done black-on-black or black-on-cream.
The designs include geometric patterns, stylized animals, birds, floral motifs, and other symbols. Sometimes these symbols have a consistent meaning i.e any member of the tribe would recognize a cloud or a water symbol, but sometimes the symbolism is meaningful to the artist alone.
This stunning pottery is still produced today in a manner almost identical to the method developed during the Classic Pueblo period about 1050-1300 AD. I hope you'll find yourself getting as drawn to this collection as I was to the Pueblo pottery.
