      As a ceramic artist I’m always intrigued by the different mediums others are working with to create delicate pieces like Upper Middle Class’s Imperfect series. What I’ve found is that sometimes imperfections add to the work, just as in the delicate imperfect eclipse earrings. If the surface had been smoothed down the same effect would be lost, and what I was specifically drawn to was the raw visceral effect of the textured surface. I also typically wear small studs so these are perfect!

      I’ve just become a follower of Silver Lining via bloglovin, and I added both silver lining and Upper Middle Class on my facebook! I’m always looking for new artists and blogs, and I think in this case I was lucky to be told about this! Thank you to Upper Metal Class for letting me know about this give away, and thank you to silver lining for promoting such an amazing artistry!

      I love so many of Upper Metal Class’ pieces it’s hard to tell you my favorite (the positive/negative ion earrings, the personalized bracelet, the im-perfect collection, and the back-to-basic earrings are all so sweet and simple. Lovely giveaway – and I think I’ve entered in all to many ways!
