Susan O'Byrne's Patterned Ceramic Creatures

I was delighted when I was greeted by a selection of Susan O'Byrne's beautiful ceramic creatures in the window of the Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool. I have not had the pleasure of meeting the interesting individuals before and fell in love with them. I was instantly attracted to Susan's use of patterned ceramics on the surface of her animals, like mosaic tiles they subtly add colour, interest and cuteness. Lamb Bluetit "Throughout history animals have also been used in storytelling…

Aubrey Beardsley's Black and White Illustrations

I thought today I would choose one of my favourite artists from the 19th Century Aubrey Beardsley. His intricate black ink drawings, references from Japanese Woodblocks, are beautiful, with the details and ornamentation like vines that seem to grow around the composition. I was introduced to Beardsley during my research into the Art Nouveau, and similarly the Arts and Crafts movements. The imagery he uses can almost be grotesque which seems to contrast with the sheer beauty and femininity of…
