Lauren Rolwing is an illustrator that have just finished her first line of ceramics called Laundrymat. She created a series of plates inspired by prints, garments and her clumsiness that always leads to spilling things on her clothes, especially coffee. Each plate is created by hand, by imprinting the clay with a garment.
Great news, ceramic artist Claire Loder (big time favorite of mine) has finally opened a shop! Good thing nr 2 – there is a giveaway going on over at Claire’s blog.
You who have followed for a while knows how much I love ceramics which obvoius handmade touch.

In the truest sense – she is multi talented, Jenni Tuominen. Graduated as a blacksmith in 1996. Went back to school and became an artist in 2001. Studied graphic design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Won Marimekko’s “Design, Meet the User!” competition in 2006 and has designed patterns for them ever since. Obviously, she has the ability to make magic with clay as well.
These treasures. Just can not stop look at them. So characteristic, weird and perfect. What a trade.
Take a peep at Jenni’s home here.
I’m browsing my new (returning) sponsor Napa’s channels and stumble over this, what it looks like, exciting project Napa & Paja.
“Napa & Paja is a jewellery designers’ studio & shop with Napa‘s artists’ bookshop. Paja features a varied selection of hand crafted jewelry by Elli Hukka, Kokoru and Bird of Passage. Napa’s bookshelf features a special selection of artists’ books by Napa, Corraini, Nieves, mmmg etc.”
What really takes my breath away is these ceramic creatures by Jenni Tuominen. Gosh, must be the best since this project. Related in a way.
More great over at Napa, the pencil necklace!
