to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Carrol Boyes' Functional Art

In the delightful shop World Design I came across the work of South African artist Carrol Boyes. Her tableware transforms the mundane into the extraordinary using pewter, stainless steel & aluminium. The gorgeous items show sensual sculptural forms, beautifully handcrafted fluid figures. Her inspiration is firmly rooted in Africa, but a look on her blog tells you other stories too.

Key Holder Woman - inspired by the movie 'Even the cowgirls get the blues'
a bottle stop I could not resist, a present for my husband (unfortunately it was the only one in the shop and the rubber ring is broken on the back)

Carrol's blogI think I could get addicted to Carrol Boyes' tableware.
