It really is black and white.

I am not typically a black and white gal-I see the gray of most things as well as dream in color often. That said, I do love the spareness and graphic qualities of these 2 base colors.
As part of my restaurant commission-I got to spend a solid 6 weeks thinking about and making white plates--with a few blacks thrown in-- and really enjoyed it. It was a cleanse really and left me wanting more of that-to which I began my path in this direction.
Here are some-I love the way my favored iconography plays against the white and then how the black really draws it all out--

There will be lots more of these down the road.
