China and cashmere...

As if the objects themselves were not gorgeous enough, the photographs of Caroline Swift's ethereal ceramics, organic glass shapes and understated cashmere are just delicious.

The most delicate wafer thin bowls

The most elegant cashmere cardigans

The most beautiful and ethereal objects

Vases to hold, to touch, to fill with a single perfect specimen

Bone china spoons. To eat breakfast? Perhaps not. To treasure? Most definitely.

Leaves fluttering to the floor

Orange glass to catch the light

Felt packaging, to wrap precious things

Dresses of the softest Italian linen to dress the part while you live your simple, chic life. Surrounded by objects too beautiful to imagine.

All pieces by Caroline Swift, an English artist who believes in the pleasure of slow, understated, timeless luxury.
