I love finding artists that are doing something very different but still beautiful and inspired by tradition. A friend of mine alerted me to this site: Ashes and Milk. The site itself is pretty rockin and the artwork is simple and organic. They feature a few different artists and a few different mediums. I love a lot of what they have* and after reading their "About" paragraph I think I understand why. Here is an excerpt:
"Ashes & Milk is an online gallery space founded on the principle that a lot can be created from very little. We are driven by modern ideas with a reverence for traditional methods and believe that the things we bring into our homes should have a soul and a sense of history. Our collection is a boutique of texture, organic materials, and nuances of white, brown, and gray."
Also, many of the potters are Japanese .. and I'm particularly drawn to the Japanese pottery traditions. I hope you are inspired by it as well.
