i’m jealous of jan de vliegher

Oooh! Now this is my kind o’ porcelain collection!  These gorgeous plates are the work of Belgian artist Jan De Vliegher {who happens to live in one of my most favorite cities in Europe – Bruges, Belgium}. The moment I saw his work I was totally in love with the simple subject-matter, the loose brush strokes – that strangely provide so much detail, AND the scale. Oh, the scale:

    Wow. At first I thought ‘hmmm, plates’, then when I saw the scale it became ‘Wow, PLATES.’ Amazing things. I love amazing things. Which is why I come here almost every day now. Thanks for the amazing things.

    These plates made my day, the scale is brilliant, the brushwork loose and not overworked.

    Your eye is sublime. When I’m feeling discouraged I often feel cheered and inspired by the artists you showcase, thank you so much!
