Perfection is predictable. Perfect, symmetrical designs only please the eye for as long as it takes the mind to learn every curve and line of the pattern. Once the eye recognises it, the mind wanders away looking for new thrills. It is imperfection that grabs our attention: the infinite patterns that surprise us and break rules, the free-hand drawings and unexpected bumps and creases in the surface. Living stories in plaster, each individual and perfectly imperfect, are what Tanya Vacarda strives for with her creations. Her designs and finishes are organically crafted and celebrate traditional artisan skills, the beauty of a handmade product and the power of a touch. She believes that a touch encourages a pause, and a pause is the closest thing to meditation.
