Hayon Studio

Hello! Hope you're having a nice week. Today I'm coming to you with the most amazing porcelain figures ever! I know... porcelain figures and amazing don't really click in our minds, but I assure you there is nothing old fashioned about these.
This is the work of Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon. Considered one of the most influential creators of the last decade by Wallpaper magazine, Jaime Hayon's creations are beautifully delicate and soft yet incredibly edgy and groundbreaking. Represented in decoration and design products, sculptures and art, the pieces, Hayon's creations are unique and stunning. Here are some of my favourite pieces, make sure to visit the website and see the brilliant photos of the creative process behind Jaime Hayon's work. Hope you like them, Love Moni!
