So you know of my love for Arabia Finland pottery, and many of you share this!
So you'll agree that this example is indeed very special...another offering from eBay, 1 bid win!
Maybe I was the only one prepared to pay the price?($100)
but look at it!
It's porcelain, it's heavy and pure white, stoneware is never this white, always yellowish.
The flat matt black glaze is thick and smooth.
The sunflower and horse design have been scratched into the glaze called scraffito.
I think it's about 50's or 60's at least?
I think it is the epitome of Scandinavian design, the contrast of black and white, they do so well!
I would like redecorate my dining room in black and white, pure scandi but I love colour....so much!.... so maybe a compromise then?
I will keep you posted on that....I'm working on an idea! :)
But today I am prepping for my first macramé class!
I'm very excited if not a bit nervous....people laugh at me when I say that! ....."your a teacher" etc......I say "I teach teenagers and they have to come to my classroom...some willingly!" ;)
I will get there!
I love Photoshop!
Happy weekend to you!
Sharing of at Max's today! love an Op Shop Show Off!...hope eBay counts?
