Ceramic Acorns Barston
Humans have always lived in and alongside nature and the natural world, and even in the modern world of industry and ever-changing technology, people still have a deep love for, and a need for, green spaces, nature and the great outdoors. All through human history, people have drawn inspiration from nature and since the earliest evidence of civilization, natural forms, animals and plants have all been intertwined in art, culture, religion and food.
Modern artists still take inspiration from the natural world, and ceramic art is particularly good at drawing from the natural world. Ceramic is a beautiful medium for working with natural shapes and forms, as it is itself a natural ingredient, but when properly handled it beautifully mirrors the strength and power of nature, while simultaneously being as fragile and delicate as nature and the rhythms of the natural world can be. Many homeowners, art collectors and interior designers use ceramic art pieces to bring nature into the home space, and Barston is a great place to do this. Surrounded by the controlled nature of the West Midlands, ceramic pieces can be a really good way to bring the beauty of the outside world into the living spaces.
The local ceramic specialists at Penkridge Ceramics, based not far away from Barston, are known all around the world for their stunning ceramic art pieces that mirror the beauty and fragility of the natural world with jaw-dropping accuracy and skill. The team at Penkridge Ceramics have made their name producing the classic ceramic art collection; ‘Still Life Studies in Clay’. Begun in 1984, the collection is the work of MA Ceramics graduates Nicky Smart and Lorraine Taylor, both experts in creating beautiful ceramic art inspired by nature. Each piece in the Still Life Studies in Clay range is made by hand in the Walsall studio and is entirely unique.
Ceramic Acorns Barston
Some of the best examples of the work in this fascinating collection are the ceramic acorns. Barston or elsewhere, these ceramic acorns are delicately formed facsimiles of real acorns, each created with painstaking attention to detail and care. These ceramic acorns Barston has access to are individually formed from ceramic and then painted with layers of glaze to produce a life-like texture and colour. The final effect is of a perfect acorn, frozen in time, full of the promise of new life and the birth of a mighty oak tree.
These stunning ceramic acorns are the perfect gift for anyone who has an interest in nature or finds the natural world to be beautiful. Penkridge Ceramics have sold the ceramic acorns Barston has to offer to customers all around the world and now these beautiful ceramic acorns sit in private and public collections around the world.
