Tabletop: Ceramics by Virginia Graham

October 29, 2010 3:30 PM

BY Sarah Lonsdale

British ceramicist Virginia Graham's eclectic tabletop pieces have a distinct Queen-Victoria-meets-Alice-in-Wonderland air. Graham works from Fireworks Clay Studios in Cardiff and is inspired by "teapots and tea services, because they are the ultimate in collectible ceramics; I am fascinated by the way in which these objects, which were originally intended for use, are often collected and displayed behind glass, never to be used." Her work—which has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum and featured in Vogue and Elle Decoration—is available at Mint in London; for other stockists, go to Virginia Graham.
