We've become somewhat disconnected in our society from the natural world, which is something that Laima Grigone looks to address with her handmade porcelain tea set. Created by hand and using a variety of different natural materials, Grigone explains that, “For millennia our bond with nature has been intimate and secure, but now is becoming increasingly fragile. My work is centred upon the importance of being connected to the land and having a light footprint on the Earth.”
The artist's attention and connection to the natural world is a clear influence when viewing the various sets she has created. The work is quality, conscious and touches on an important notion that anyone around the world can truly appreciate.
