A ceramicist and an artist

Posted on Sun, 1 Jul 2007 by KiM

The new issue of Canadian House & Home magazine had an article about Vancouver ceramicist Laura McKibbon. I was captivated by the photos of her work and went looking for more eye candy on her website and was even more taken. I adore the shapes of the dishes and the beautiful colours, not to mention the stunning screen-printed images.

She has also collaborated with artists for some images, including Jon Izen, a Winnipeg artist, on “headphone dude” below.


I thought headphone dude was so cute I just had to go poking around Jon’s website and found the following adorable drawings.

Kim, what a wonderful surprise to come to the site this morning and see some lovely things from Vancouver artists.

I was first introduced to Laura McKibbon’s plates through a regular gathering called Shiny Fuzzy Muddy (www.shinyfuzzymuddy.com) and fell in love with so many beautiful things.

Arleigh Wood’s art work is just gorgeous and I’ve been lucky enough to take three art classes through her. I was also introduced to Janna Hirtzig and her company Astrosatchel (www.astrosatchel.com) through this group and adore my satchel to bits!

So cute. Love the dudes.
