Dining Room Art

I’m one of those nuts who is moved by clay. I love “art” (meaning very debatable, but I’m referring to visual art here) in general, and ceramics in particular. And I’m trying overall in my home to have less but have better. With that, I’m trying to avoid spending money on mediocrity so that I have both the space and budget to pop for extra special pieces with longevity. Enter this wall hanging by MQuan, one of my favorite contemporary ceramicists, that has been haunting me for the past few years! Years. IT IS NOW HANGING ON MY WALL. Gorgeous, graphic, and a little kooky. It’s true love.A great thing about (minimally) filling your home with pieces that you truly adore, is that they can single-handedly carry a room. I purchased this with the dining wall in mind, and after agonizing over which room would receive the honor because it made every room, I went with that first instinct…mainly because I can see it from the most number of adjacent rooms, haha! I finally worked out the logistics of getting it hung last week and it is SO stunning. A smile maker. Black and white cookie magic.  We’re still working on the transition between these rooms, and cleaning up this view, but I love that I can sneak a clay peek from so many vantage points.
OK, I also nabbed one of these mini ornaments too. I wanted to hug it so it came home with me. I guess that’s how you know when you’ve found the one(s).
