Etsy Monday: More Than Porcelain.

Don't we all want to be 'reloved'?  Well, Berlin-born and Athens-based Monika from More Than Porcelain does just that.  She takes vintage (and sometimes new) pottery and creates something new and unique.  From sweet and delicate, she uses her love of surrealism, Victorian art and graffiti to give these pieces a personality ten times larger than it could have been before.  With Monika's help, her items begin to tell stories all their own.

So I know that I very recently wrote about how I have to stop collecting skull artifacts but, dammit, what choice do I have now?!  It helps that Monika's interests are the same as mine (Victorian faces, skulls, Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins, Hitchcock) but how these details give already beautiful artifacts such life in such an unexpected way is imperfect perfection.  I want an entire wall in my apartment dedicated to these plates.  And a whole cupboard dedicated to these teacups.  Oh, and also, I want to throw tea parties on the regular.
