I have fallen in love with Carmen's porcelain plates from the first time I laid my eyes on them. And she remembered probably because I just could not stop gushing every time she posted about her new ceramics.
And now that I see them for myself, I am pleased to say I was right all along. Her work is impressive and convincing and utterly lovely.
All the above are pictures from her blog. Her posts are usually briefly worded , unlike mine. I do know however that Carmen sells her work at fairs and by commission.
Here is a little opulent setting I have created, in tribute to Carmen's artistry. In it is a miniature howdah I bought at the Miniature Museum of Taiwan which I thought echoes the pomp and ostentation of L'Asie appropriately.
Carmen, please accept my gratitude and these are for you:
For the sunshine you brought me,
for the artisan and friend that you are.
for making me very happy
and for another unforgettable experience.
