Magpie {56}


Slip cast parian cup by Natalie Wood, with illustration by Kirsti Beautyman

I met Natalie a couple of years ago at her Gray’s School of Art degree show. She was showcasing her range of Japanese inspired Detsu ware and I was captivated by the pared back forms and pastel colours. Our paths have crossed a number of times over the past two years, but somehow I never managed to buy a piece of hers.

Recently Natalie has been collaborating with a number of illustrators who have decorated a series of her pieces. I saw this piece, the ‘Serpent King’ described on her Instagram feed earlier this month and snapped it up. It reminds me of the imagery I used to see in the children’s books I was brought up on.
