Bethan Laura Wood finds inspiration in the techniques used by the legendary master Aldo Londi to sign her ceramic guadaloupe collection for Bitossi. The relief inside the molds creates uniform and eloquent details which inspire the flowing lines and graphic forms of the stained glass window of the New Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico.
