j. mendicino: ceramics

you know there's something about a piece of art (especially a piece of art that's meant for your home...i.e. affordable) when it can make you slow down, stop what you're doing, take a deep breath, relax.

joanna mendicino's work does this for me - whether it be in person (at rare device where i first saw them) or scrolling through her website, as i am now.

i'm not sure what to pin it on, but i think it's a combination of the clean lines, uncluttered design, pure whites and creams. when they all come together (even in a bird-like shape, which i am kind of over), they make me take pause, if only for a brief moment.
