I found ceramic artist Caroline Swift's work at the Paris Gift Show and have been obsessed with it ever since....the simplest white bowls as delicate as eggshells and whimsical spoons in fine bone china are beautiful... enjoy her website and make sure you click through to the packaging and tea party images!
