'teapot 3' by Nina Levett 2009

Nina Levett’s patterns and ornaments are based on conceptual, humorous ideas, her work is based on experiments with surfaces and materials. Ornaments and patterns are developed for ceramic tiles, textiles, resin floors, boats, glass walls as well as packaging and (editorial) print.

The patterns on the wallpapers are handpainted and finished with epoxy resin.
