Last week I had the pleasure to be invited by Gudy Herder to ElTornBarcelona, for a potters and ceramicists pop-up shop and exhibition. As the blogger behind Eclectic Trends, Gudy and I had been in contact for a while online until we had the chance to meet at the Kinfolk dinner, organised last month here in Barcelona (post coming soon!).
I love Gudy's work: there's a very special sensitivity about the way she presents things on her blog and I could notice it as well in her ceramics. The collection Gudy showed was of a selection of paper porcelain pieces: sculptural, almost architectonic objects as light as a feather. I loved their delicacy, the irregularity of the edges and shapes, due to the special process she used. Very fascinating. She also gave me a tour of the workshop and of the fellow potters' and ceramists' work, like Corrie Bain's and Sophie Aguilera's.
