In particular, I was looking forward to seeing Claire Loder’s work. I love her unique and quirky way of sculpting faces in ceramics. It was the very first time for me to see her work in real life. Oh, what a sensation! Such a joy to imagine the story behind the individual pieces (faces :)) that look at you. I knew my budget was tight, but could not resist to take her home since my heart was stolen by this ‘panda me’ face. She now sits where I can see every morning and night at our home and gives us this irresistible eye contact. Go and see her website, a paradise full of characters!
