Popped into Antiques on High, 85 High St,
Oxford to find new mugs being unpacked.
Interesting to see how far designs come along
in the space of a few months, from colourful
stylisations to new found explorations in realism.
Pushing the confidence levels enables us
to choose how to depict things rather than
how to limit things. Not that realism has
all the answers but skills enable craftsmen
to go wherever their inspiration wants them,
either towards abstraction or further into
the realms of imitation.
