Ceramics Queen

February 28, 2024

You may remember the fabulous Josephine Dessine, a French artist living in London. We wrote about her previously when Lotty hosted an open event in the boutique on Mustique to show off Josephine's wonderful talent.

Like Lotty, she is inspired by nature and created a Mustique collection. We are proud to feature this “hobby” in our Mustique boutique and to call this talented artist our friend!

Here is Josephine telling the story in her own words:
