Watercolored Porcelain




Ruth Gurvich's hand painted porcelain pieces for Nymphenburg just might be the most beautiful pottery I've ever seen. The transparent colors overlapping one another are the most beautiful painted application to pottery I've seen to date. It almost feels like a watercolor painting folded to make a piece of pottery. Oh how I would love to own a set of these one day.
