There is nowhere near enough information about Swedish ceramicist Mia E Goransson on the Net. She is inspired by botanical forms which she she hand builds and molds in porcelain. The surfaces are so seductive, the colours so clear. In the contemporary climate of very cool,white , minimal porcelain I think Goransson's is exploration of colour and texture takes the medium in a different direction. Tactile appeal is a quality more often associated with wood fired ceramics but the need to touch (or lick!) these pieces is overwhelming.
