The Ever Expanding Blog Post / by Romy Northover

The Ever Expanding Blog post was passed onto me by my friend and ceramic jewelry designer LILY PIYATHAISERE of GAMMA FOLK. It's a way of connecting and expanding with other designers, makers and creatives

Lily uses natural dyes, fabrics and ceramics to make her incredible statement pieces,  'Influenced by folk art, mysticism, pop culture and the bauhaus,' which are available in her webshop .

Below are some pictures of Lily's work and process.... by our other friend and photographer Christine Han 

My Q&A - Romy Northover on 'NO.'

What am I working on?

I'm working on my slipwear collection, developing that. I'm about to up the anti with scale and start doing some bigger pieces. I'm also doing a kinstugi master class in August. Kintsugi is the Japanese technique of repairing broken ceramics with lacquer and gold.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Ceramics is as old as civilisation practically so I find it astonishing that there are still so many ways of interpreting it. I like to use traditional techniques and then switch it up:

raw / space / form / tone / international / ancient / future

Why do I create what I do?

I don't have a choice, I have to do it! Ceramics is my one and only, its the thing that makes me truely happy in life.... and I have tried alot of other things!

How does my creative process work?

Being receptive. And knowing how to respond to or interpret that, being active. The transmition is always on!

I am passing the 'Ever Expanding Blog Post' on to two favourites GERDA POSTMA of IKKAI conceptual designer in the Netherlands, and MAXIM NORTHOVER stop motion animator in England.
