  1. Beautiful work is right!

    I love her use of colour - it's very different. It's so colourful without being cartoon-ish... that's not the right word. I'll think on that. Very, very nice... I'll take one of each please!

  2. Dear Mr Tasker,

    May I post a link to this page on my Phoebe Traquair page?

  3. I found you via Hermes and am in love with Traquair pieces you've featured. That casket is amazing!

    Look forward to reading your blog.
