Rhian Malin

Inspired by her Grandmother’s Willow Pattern collection, Rhian Malin continues the long historic tradition of hand-painting porcelain with cobalt-blue decoration. Her elegant wheel-thrown porcelain vessels are the chosen surface, created to stretch this tradition in to the 21st Century. 

The beauty of imperfection is explored through applying geometric patterns to deliberately distorted forms, challenging the inherent perfectionist Rhian is at heart. 

Taking a mathematical approach to applying each design, patterns are either projected onto vessels to accentuate their tactile, dimpled contours or divided up into eighths vertically to highlight their tapering forms.
