Kylie Johnson: Poet and Ceramicist
Kylie Johnson is a talented poet and a ceramicist from Brisbane who has an online store but -- good news for the US and Europe -- Anthropologie recently picked up her ceramics though they already stock her poetry books (I own Count Me The Stars published by Murdoch Books, it's lovely) and I think their choice is just perfect as Kylie's work is stunning Anthropologie commissioned three vessels from her for their stores and Kylie wants to share them with decor8 readers today as they are just about to hit the shelves in both Europe and the US next week.
I love seeing poetry and ceramics merge - what a gorgeous combination of my two favorite things -- meaningful words and delicate, tactile porcelain, for a true sensory experience. Australian photographer Jillian Leiboff recently did a portrait shoot with Kylie and so above is a little glimpse from that day these two ladies spent together, which I thought was really sweet... so now you see above Kylie's gorgeous pieces.
Psst: Kylie blogs, too.
