Este MacLeod Ceramist, Glassmaker, Artist
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.
What do you think readers any takers ? Beautiful work Este, look forward to seeing which direction your creative path travels next. You see more of Este’s painterly collection here on Pinterest.
