Samantha Robinson Porcelain

August 31, 2009

Samantha Robinson’s enticing collection of porcelain makes me so happy this morning! I am hoping that I can find some of it locally because I have my eyes on a few vases that I’d love to own. Samantha is a young, talented potter who lives in Australia and works from her studio in Bondi and sells her wares along with fresh flowers once weekly at a local marketplace. This lady allows her emotions and inspirations to dictate how a piece will turn out; she claims that often she’ll sit before her wheel not exactly knowing what will result. Why don’t you take a look…

Samantha is also a lover of handmade products, purchasing handmade for herself and friends. Her creations are eye-catching and while skillfully made they feel organic and laid back. Each is clearly infused with her love of nature and texture.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to Samantha’s work. How fabulous are those colours, the shapes. I’m particularly taken with the porcelain coffee and tea cups.

    I’m off to Sydney in October so I’m going to try to visit the Paddington Markets to check out her work in person (and probably buy something, of course!).

    Great blog Holly. It’s a joy to read it every day.

    Oh I love Samantha’s work! It’s even better than it looks in the photos… really! I spent ages a couple of months ago trying to decide what piece to buy at the market. In the end it was all too gorgeous and I decided to think about it some more. You’ve reminded me to go back and be decisive.
