Prolific Spanish artist/designer Jaime Hayon designed these magical ceramic pieces for Lladró. His Fantasy Collection is one of dozens of other collections by Hayon, and they are all showcased on his site and all pretty amazing. But this one really stands out to me. It's playful, light and unexpected. And there's the tiniest suggestion -- enough to keep things interesting -- that it might have been veered into the disturbing.
Hayon has been selected as ‘Artist of the year 2010‘ by French design tradeshow Maison et Objects and it's easy to see why they're celebrating his work.
