When I was in San-Francisco, I came across a lot of beautiful ceramics in Valencia, which I wish I could have packed in my suitcase. Luckily, the British craft scene is flourishing with young and established talents. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Jono Smart and Kathleen Hills (her beautiful cluster & pendant lights are all over my home in France).
I was recently introduced to Nudeite Parfum, a new British company that creates beautiful, natural perfume in the most gorgeous ceramic vessels so I’ve asked Elaine, the Founder, to share her inspirations and her favourite Ceramists with us. If you love ceramic, you are in for a treat…
Tell us about you:
I am a British designer with a love of simple, beautiful, things that have purpose. One of my favourite quotes that sums up my ethos is by Finnish Architect Alvar Aalto:“beauty is the harmony of purpose and form” .
Nudeite Parfum is a contemporary perfume house and design collective, which showcases and collaborates with talented designers and craftsman to develop beautiful, natural perfume.
Nudeite means: nu goddess, or really new worship, meaning what, how and who do we worship or honour today. I hope we care enough to worship nature, for me this is crucial.
Craftsmanship is something that really inspires me. Learning and developing skills that can be passed down from generation to generation is s huge legacy to leave and can not to be underestimated. From the Ghanaian women who harvest our organic shea butter to Kate* our ceramic artist… people with incredible skills and integrity inspire me.
How long did you spend working on this project?
How would describe your style at home?
Minimal, simple, monochrome, a love of all things Scandinavian mixed with my eclectic bohemian roots.
What are you favourite Ceramists?
Dietland Wolf (for her use of colour and simplicity), Caroline Swift (for her delicacy and simplicity), Maya Ben David (for her use of form) and obviously Kate Schuricht* (for her use of rake firing and amazing form and detail).
