I recently came across the wonderful work of Este MacLeod, got in touch and discovered her world of multidisciplinary talents. She works in ceramics and glass and has recently completed and MA in Contemporary Crafts (specialising in Jewellery) as well as being a very talented artist and fine art painter.

These reminded me of an earlier blog I did about Claire Loder. Love the birds and calm expressions.

A glimpse into Este’s beautiful glass work. They’re like mini paintings in themselves.

Then we get to explore more of the landscapes.

Este is also a textile designer. I can see her eye for colour and detail in these rolling hills and the tapestry-esque fields of flowers.

There are mood changes too. Subtle still life’s in blues, greens and creams.  Again the pattern comes into play to flirt with the eye and enhance the level of detail within the painting.

How beautiful are these dotty canvasses ?

Great florals interact with swathes of colour and slightly cubist worlds

My absolute favourites are these patchwork landscapes. I love Este’s scratchy scraper board work and the ariel view of these environments. I could imagine the middle painting to be a wonderful duvet cover.

    I bought a piece of Este’s ceramics three years ago in London and lost her name, spookily I was thinking about the piece yesterday and how to find out who she was, now I know! Reconnected to the artist, thankyou. Your blog is a sheer delight and hugely appreciated.

      Hi Jacqui. Many thanks for your comment and great to hear the post was informative for many reasons. Este also is on FB so that’s another way to get in touch. Have a great weekend.

    I’m delighted you’ve chosen to spotlight Este’s lovely work. I discovered her Facebook page a few months ago and have been an avid follower since. She has a terrific sense of colour and design.
