I came across this South African company that produces beautiful botanical ceramics. I love the simple, timeless lines of their pieces.
Ento Ceramics was established by Dr Tanza Crouch, artist and professional entomologist (someone who studies and applies their knowledge of insects). The beauty of bugs and their extraordinary diversity provide never-ending inspiration for patterns and design in art. We share the Earth with these creatures and need each other for our long-term survival. As a reminder, ENTO Ceramics strives to bring nature into your home, through durable images on porcelain and china. She is currently using Maxwell & Williams as a base for her designs. Take pleasure in using these products, which are dishwasher and microwave safe.
|All the images appearing on the tableware were inspired by South African plants, beetles, butterflies, wasps, bees and dragonflies. There are 50 000 named species of insects and 20 000 plnats in our region to choose from. The rich designs and the mass of color and pattern are a celebration of this enormous diversity.|
|Each ceramic item is unique - Tanza arranges all of her designs by hand, ensuring that no two pieces are alike. She works from her studio in an indigenous garden in the leafy suburb of Kloof, KwaZulu-Natal.|
Till next time, Happy Decorating
