photo (4)Square dish by Louise Gardelle

The Charleston Gift Shop has an exquisite selection of ceramics, and I was thrilled to see a number of pieces by the wonderful artist, Louise Gardelle. I had discovered Gardelle’s beautiful bowls and platters, generally featuring either women asleep or lost in quiet reflection, in Paris, but had never seen her ceramics available anywhere in the UK. I was so pleased, then, to see the extensive collection available at Charleston and purchased the above square plate which now sits proudly on my coffee table. – Miranda
